I don't think Kevin Spacey would be down with riotous pussy.

Season 2, Episode 1. First time I ever unintentionally spit out water because of something I saw on TV.

Love this show. Best political drama on television since The West Wing.

Newsroom had a chance but the season 2 finale was the worst ... and it got cancelled, which is a bummer.

I don't know. I just finished season 2 and the second half of it really was rather... head scratching. The whole Bridge business was rather muddled. I had to actually go hunting for episode recaps to figure out for instance "why is this bridge important again?" and other details because the motivations and actions sort of got lost in all the minutia. The dickwagging contest between Tusk and Frank got tedious.

I like the show, I guess. But they need to bring in some actual tension. You KNOW that Frank is always going to win. And while it can be fun to watch how Frank screws everybody, it has already become boring and predictable.

I loved the show, but I really wish they weren't doing a third season.  The show ended perfectly.  There's no need to keep adding more to the story.  I don't understand this obsession with "The Story That Never Ends".  We don't need constant sequels.

This ought to be the final season of House of Cards, if it's to mirror the original British version. After all, the title of the show implies that F.U. rules on a very shaky foundation, which won't last. Ah, but what the hell do I know? The producers will probably milk this show for all that it is worth.

The reason is "It makes the story much, much better". Maybe look in to basic dramatic story construction, it's pretty simple. A story where the characters don't change, or undergo some kind of reckoning  is boring as shiat.

Yes, because not getting the best of them (in the context of that show) would have meant Walter's death. No Walter, no show. So the fact that Walter would win was fairly predictable, with the only questions being when, and how, and with what collateral damage. Which can still (obviously) make for an interesting show.

Walter didn't need to die to lose. He was in handcuffs for a moment.

TV has changed today. Frank doesn't need to die in order for him to lose, obviously. But he's not going to be at the top of the ladder for the duration of the show's run now. Good writing keeps things unpredictable, and HoC has great writing.

Macbeth is an expression of a archetype (the tragic protagonist undone by his own unrestrained ambition) and its a damned good one. There have been lots of expression of that particular archetype, of which HoC could be one, if FU does indeed end up being undone by his own ambition.

The producers may be trying to put a twist on it by having FU actually get away with it--he certainly isn't tortured by guilt the way Macbeth is in the play. But, having achieved his goal, the most interesting story left to tell is that of his downfall, so that's where I would expect them to go.

It has to get more interesting.  The performances were solid in both seasons, but the second was disappointing in that Frank really didn't have any worthy opponents.  Towards the end it felt like everyone was in a holding pattern until the inevitable conclusion just to take up time.  Aside from what happened to Stamper, that is.

I actually wanted the end to be a cliffhanger, in which the President was still making the decision he made so that there was a chance that things wouldn't necessarily go Frank's way.

/and I am still bitter about Freddie

The last scene of season two's finale was fantastic....  They couldn't have ended it any better.

Frank walking behind the president's desk, and throwing the chair,  knocking on the desk with his ring...  Damn..

I agree that HoC has great writing. And I agree that Frank doesn't need to die to lose.

In that way, it's different from Breaking Bad. That show created a milieu where losing meant dying. So if Walter didn't die, he wasn't going to lose. Plus, he was the central character of the show. The show was about HIM. That's why the show ended with his death.

HoC will eventually have to go in the direction of FU's downfall, because to show him serving two terms and then retiring to a ranch in Montana would be boring. If it were me, I'd spend most of a season showing him riding high while the seeds of his eventual downfall are planted, and then spend another season showing him slowly being dragged kicking and screaming into his own personal hell. But once he's there, the show is over, because, again, the show is about HIM. Showing him as an inmate in FPC Pensacola, trimming shrubs on the Navy base as part of a prison work crew, isn't going to work for more than one episode.

GoT is fundamentally different from HoC in that it has such an expansive cast and such a myriad of storylines that any one character can be killed without ending the show. They go for entire episodes without showing some of the major characters because there just isn't time to shoehorn every last plot thread into every episode. And the have purposely created a environment where any character can meet a sudden and violent end at any time.

In fact, I'd argue that Ned Stark had to die, because it was symbolic of the fact that being a man of honor and integrity will get you killed when everyone around you is a backstabbing schemer.

Exactly.  The title "House of Cards" implies that it all has to fall down, shaky foundation and all that.  The downfall has to be spectacular - Frank very nervously and frantically keeps everything from falling apart until near the end, someone pulls a single thread and the whole thing comes unraveling in an incredible fashion, something akin to Watergate and Nixon.  That's the only way I see the show ending.  An unnecessary 4th season would only "Dexter" the show.

I agree that BB is about Walter, and to a lesser extent Jesse, but he didn't have to die. He could have been arrested.

And as for GoT, it was definitely about Ned prior to his death. That was the moment that changed everything, and the show no longer had a main character. Shows like The West Wing or The Wire have no real main character (besides maybe Bartlett or McNulty), but it's not *about* them.

HoC is absolutely *about* Frank, but this doesn't mean it needs to be forever. Look at Zoe for proof. You never know what direction a show like this is going to take.

My main point here is that calling House of Cards "boring and predictable" is absolutely wrong.

I agree. I love the show, and I think that the writing and acting are fantastic. It's hard for me to imagine that the show could continue without FU, because the character is so compelling, and because Spacey is such a great actor, but I suppose it's possible. Spacey just inhabits that role in a way that would be awfully hard to replace.

I think they are signed for 4 seasons. But yeah, for the show to end now without showing how Frank's carefully crafted House of Cards falls down would be a serious TV cockblock. And I agree that they shouldn't drag it out too long or else some of the earlier important plot points would get buried by a long run.

*spoiler*
Pete Russo's hooker getting away from Doug's clutches at the end of S2 is a good start for Frank's downfall.

yup. it was a real driver to show that he's absolutely willing to get blood on his hands and not feel the slightest hint of remorse. i got the vibe from that alone that he simply didn't have the capability for remorse, and any attempt to express it was only a self-aggrandizing claim of humility

Prediction: In the series finale right before F. U. is sent to prison he kills himself and leaves behind info that destroys those taking him down.

The Banana Thug: Cybernetic: In fact, I'd argue that Ned Stark had to die, because it was symbolic of the fact that being a man of honor and integrity will get you killed when everyone around you is a backstabbing schemer.

Ned Stark had to die because that's what set the stage for the War of the Five Kings.

Tax Boy: Pelvic Splanchnic Ganglion: I loved the show, but I really wish they weren't doing a third season.  The show ended perfectly.  There's no need to keep adding more to the story.  I don't understand this obsession with "The Story That Never Ends".  We don't need constant sequels.

because in the british version F.U. becomes prime minister then has a downfall.

We need Act 3 in the US version.

Hopefully there won't be a 4th season to drag it out.

Exactly.  The title "House of Cards" implies that it all has to fall down, shaky foundation and all that.  The downfall has to be spectacular - Frank very nervously and frantically keeps everything from falling apart until near the end, someone pulls a single thread and the whole thing comes unraveling in an incredible fashion, something akin to Watergate and Nixon.  That's the only way I see the show ending.  An unnecessary 4th season would only "Dexter" the show.


HoC S3 ends just like Dexter S8: Kevin Spacey gets a beard.

I am very attracted to Nadja something about the way she looks and her attitude. I would like to take a second to thank her for all the nudity and the protest where she and others had sex in public. All were very pleasing to view.
