I watched the first season of House of Cards when it was originally released, and quite enjoyed it, but then for some reason never got around to watching the following seasons, even though I did have an interest in doing so. While I was hit with the flu a couple of weeks ago, I binged through seasons 2 and 3, and am currently a bit passed half of season 4, and wow, what a fantastic series. I can definitely now say that it gets added to my top 10 list of all-time favorite TV series. I remember reading that some people felt season 3 was a bit of a disappointment, but I found myself enjoying it just as much as the rest. And I’m really enjoying season 4, and can’t wait to see how it concludes. Gotta love Netflix.
Holy shit. This show is back, and it ain’t pulling any punches. I was very pleased to see how little time it took for me to remember why I enjoyed watching the first season so much. I’ve recently mentioned that I find Matthew McConaughey’s character in True Detective to be the most interesting one I’ve seen on TV in a while, and I think it’s safe to say that Frank Underwood comes in at second.
