Anyone watching new season of "House of Cards"?

I've watched about 5 episodes. Lots of references to the chaos in the WH today.

1. I never made it to this season.

I watched a few seasons but stopped when I realized the present mis-administration was all the misery I could handle. I like to relax watching TV and this show was so good I couldn't distinguish it from Trumps.

3. Yup.

But still, Robin Wright is amazing.

4. Yes, she is...

and this season has Diane Lane. I was surprised to see her in this.

5. Sadly, the rest of the episodes devolve

into an even more incoherent, indecipherable mess of a story, with a final scene rising to soap opera levels of implausibility.

I was a super-fan of this show (I actually use the theme song as my ring tone, tru story!). I watched with open mind and heart, wanting to give it every chance to blow my mind - and I now wish they had just canceled the whole thing when they fired Kevin Spacey.

6. I only have one more episode to go and...

I have to agree with you. As good as the acting is, the story line is getting ridiculous. They really should have stopped while they were ahead.

7. I only made it in about the 6th show of first season before stopping.

 

Too dark and extreme for me.
