House Of Cards (Netflix Tv Show)

eeriepadaveeeriepadave West Chester, PAPosts: 26,109
So I saw a few friends of mine posted about this show on facebook the other day cause the second season was available on Netflix. I had never even heard of it and I'm not a huge fan of the "political drama" tv shows, but I do like Kevin Spacey a lot. So i decided to check it out. 4 episodes in the first series and i'm liking it. Spacey's character is great. Also like Kate Mara's character, Zoe. She looks a lot like her sister, Rooney.

    oh man. I really like this show. I found out about the second season and watched the entire thing in two days. This passed Sat & Sun. Though in my defense it was a holiday weekend and I'm "allergic" to snow.

    I rarely watch TV but this was great! Binge worthy indeed :) I've already finished season 2!
    Are we getting something out of this all-encompassing trip?

    Seems my preconceptions are what should have been burned...

    Took a week for my wife and I to watch the 2nd season. That was much longer than I thought it would. Really like it. The only thing that sucks?? Now we have to wait a year to watch season 3.

    Umm yeah I know the scene you are talking about. Very weird. They did kinda hint that Frank would be into that sort of thing during the episode in the 1st season where he went back to college. But yeah, didn't expect that from Meacham.

    Second season has bit too much "feelings and soap opera stuff". Meachum, frank and Clair. Really? Was that necessary.

    I cant stand this show. I tried so hard to like it. Too much drama... and NOTHING good ever happens.
    Pick up my debut novel here on amazon: Jonny Bails Floatin (in paperback) (also available on Kindle for $2.99)
  • I watched the first 5 episodes of the first season. That was enough for me.

    Finished season 3 last night... did not care for it. Season 1 was excellent, 2 was not as good but still ok, 3 was just erratic. Seemed like they didn't really know where to go with it so they just went all over the place. The mock summits and debates were rather elementary and, at times, laughable. Kevin Spacey is still great though.

    Glad I'm not the only one who was disappointed by this season. I found it pretty boring. It seemed like there was a lot more talking, a lot less happening.

    I got 15 minutes into the first episode of season 3 and decided I'm done. I agree that 1 was great and 2 not really. I got sick of Kevin Spacey's accent. I spent five years living in South Carolina, and never once did I hear a person talk like that. I also grew weary of the whole soliloquy-in-the-camera thing. The purpose of that device is to make a viewer feel complicit in the character's behavior, but the character is so despicable I couldn't empathize. I wanted him to stop talking to me. By the end of season 2, I grew bored with how one-dimensional everybody is, and then season 3 starts with 15 minutes of a guy in bed watching TV. No thanks. Too bad they couldn't keep the suspense going the way they did in season 1.

    Because it's funny and because people like the characters. I'm not saying evil characters can't be likable. If you're a fan of General Hospital (haha), you know that the most likable, popular characters are the mobsters and the murderers because we see different sides to them. Walter White in Breaking Bad is another example -- morally bankrupt, yet we couldn't all help but sympathize with him.

    I just find the Kevin Spacey villain flat, probably because his voice is so damned flat, and it annoys the hell out of me. I want to smack the fake southern drawl right out of him. If I knew where his psychopathology came from, then maybe I would start to go deeper into the show. But the writers offer nothing except one horrible deed after the other, and I guess I have a hard time believing that one human being is capable of being all bad, all the time. Somebody else said it above: "Nothing good ever happens" and I can't relate that.

    People are completely free to disregard my opinion and explain why they love this show and the character. I don't need to be right. Just looking for something to talk about on another snowy night.

But the writers offer nothing except one horrible deed after the other, and I guess I have a hard time believing that one human being is capable of being all bad, all the time. Somebody else said it above: "Nothing good ever happens" and I can't relate that.

    People are completely free to disregard my opinion and explain why they love this show and the character. I don't need to be right. Just looking for something to talk about on another snowy night.
    I'm just glad that it is available on Canadian Netflix.
    A refreshing change from (US laughtrack sitcoms)
    Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not. Both ideas are overwhelming. AE

    I like the soliloquy and actually thought s3 needed more of them. I also like his accent. It reminds me of foghorn leghorn lol
    The characters are hopelessly unrelatable though so unless they're pushing people in front of trains or banging kept hookers or secret service agents they become boring.
    Who was watching tv in the beginning? I dunno why i can't remember that.
