Short review of Season 3
13 April 2016 | by 851222See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

"House of Cards" season 3 was 9/10 in my opinion. Both leads are phenomenal, writing is smart and sometimes provoking. While i do not really follow true politics of USA, i have to say i don't believe that it is an accurate portrait of life in White House, "The West Wing" was much more superior in this front, but "House of Cards" does not want to replicate the late show, nor i think it tries to be very accurate - it is a very entertaining TAKE on the White Housewith "what if" question just zooming around. Would you vote for Francis Underwood ? No, i you are the viewer of this show, but in reality that is what we are voting for in our countries - they are all very similar.

Overall, i enjoyed season 3 more then i thought i would. It is entertaining, superbly acted by both leads with nice supporting stuff (although nothing as memorable as Kate Mara's or Corey Stoll's characters and acting of these two very good actors in previous seasons). Directing was solid as well as writing. And i really intrigued how it would turn out for this president now.
