We review Frank and Claire's third season.
Somehow David Fincher and his crew have transformed boring United States' politics into one of the most intense dramas I have ever seen… seriously. Each episode is on an average of 50 minutes, not one of them is boring, and most importantly, House of Cards does not feel like a television show at all. Kevin Spacey continues to own the role of Frank Underwood and is supported by Robin Wright with flawless grace. The two characters together “are an unstoppable force” and in season three you see just that.

like another Emmy."
"Well, I'll be damned, Claire,
I cannot talk about Frank and Claire without mentioning Doug Stamper. This character is unwaveringly devoted to Frank and is the only person the Underwood's trust. You never know what his intentions are and just when you think you’ve figured him out, he pulls a 180 as another example of the show's endlessly great writing. Doug Stamper is beautifully woven into the main plot, but has his own agenda on the side and rarely lets it get in the way of doing his job. Doug’s story arc is addicting and you thirst for his every move.
|"Your fart just got us a check to |
cash in for another Emmy."
House of Cards season three is just the appetizer to your three course meal. You’re hungry and need to eat, but don’t want to fill up on it because you know that the next plate is going to be even better.
