House of Cards (2013)

Written by Law on July 13, 2017

"If you can tell a taut, precise story in one episode, stretch it out into a slack, incoherent, tedious season instead" seems to be this show's motto. House of Cards has good ideas and good actors, which it fails in its execution, with poor scripts and poorer editing. The story could have easily been told in half the time, and would have been all the better for it. This TV series is, like so much in the original Netflix stable, cattle feed for its undiscerning subscribers.
