Kevin Spacey has topped his already great acting this season. The score by Jeff Beal blows away his work on both first seasons. Every single moment had me captivated. Full Review »

The UK series wasn't perfect either, but it got it right with making the seasons 6 episodes each. Shorter, tighter. This always pads things out with useless relationship drama. I won't be back for the fourth season. I can already bet money that it will end with Frank being assassinated with Claire pulling the strings. Anti-hero cliche #5,041. No need to slog through another tedious season to get to that. Full Review »

And while I loved the first couple episodes of season 2, I was left a bit disappointed. The problem I now have with House of Cards is that it thinks it is smarter than it actually is. I feel like the show acts like it is one of the great TV dramas up there with The Sopranos and The Wire. And if you look at it from a critical standpoint, its not even one of the best dramas on TV. Most people are surprised that House of Cards is not a critical darling with its big budget and the two well respected leads. Spacey is wasting his talents here, because while Frank Underwood is an interesting character he never gets anything to do. Wright was one of the positive things I had to say about this season, she probably did some of the best acting of her whole career. Other than the acting, the directing remains great, while the writing remains a bit dry. The backlash the show received during the second half of season two, makes me hope that the writers learn from their mistakes, but I don't know if I can be that optimistic. Full Review »

I thought the performances and directing were great. When I got to season 2, I was disappointed, I wasn't a fan of the China storyline and I started to feel that the show thought it was smarter than it really was. Even though I really didn't like season 2 (I gave it a 5/10), I thought the premiere was great and the episode with Claire's interview was great also. I had high hopes for this season, because I thought the writers would take into consideration the critical backlash the show faced in the second half of its final season, but unfortunately they did not. Season three is better than season two, but is nowhere close to season one. The character of Frank Underwood is great, but I feel that Spacey isn't really being challenged enough and living up to his potential (He was great in Chapter 28 though). Wright, like last season, is great, and like last season the most interesting parts of the show is when it revolves around her. Overall, while season three is a bit better than season two, I'm still going to give it a 5/10. Full Review »
