I'll just say it completely jumped the shark.

Ep 3 was ridiculous.  I won't give anything away here for spoilers in case somebody who hasn't seen it reads this thread and then goes "hey, why'd you ruin it?"

Nothing's ringing a bell about that episode in particular, but I might've just forgotten.  Give me a hint.  lol

Also, I remind you that this guy has already been responsible for 2 murders in Season 1, so you've had to suspend your disbelief for a while now.  I'm OK with that.

I don't want to blow it for people here. Just read a quick review online.  I'll say that it gets progressively more absurd.

Anybody else watch this shit show?  Need some feedback rather than the millenials who write columns reviewing shows, which I can't take much of.

I loved the first 2 seasons, tried to watch season 3 and gave up after 2 episodes.

They should have left off after season 2 and left the rest to folks imagination, had that been the case people would still be saying it was a great show.

Agree to a degree. I thought they jumped the shark Ep 1 season 2 when he killed Zoe the reporter.

That show was next on the binge list for my wife and I but just before I added them to my Netflix list I thought 'I get enough politics in the real world, I don't want to watch a show about them too" and took them out..

I agree that the shark has been jumped. Finished watching all of Season 4 a few weeks back...but damn if I can remember anything that resonated with me. If it comes back for a season 5, I'm not on board.

I really didn't like how they played up the opposing candidate, then completely cut her off, mid-way through the season and replaced her with the douchey family/military guy. Claire's mom was another out-of-nowhere element that they shoveled in.

There was a lot of stuff they swept under the rug with Remy Danton and Jackie Sharpe.

Erick, I agree 100% for those points. Just terrible writing.

I thought season 4 was enjoyable for the most part.

Yes, they did sweep some characters under the rug, like Dunbar, and I also think the shifting focus to Claire kinda took some of the sting out of Frank's character. One of the things I like so much about the show is Frank's backstage scheming, which was so prevalent in seasons 1 and 2 leading up to his becoming president.

I think the show missed a good storyline possibility when they didn't have Claire come right out and divorce Frank. It's never been done, mid-presidential run, for a president to face the aftermath of a divorce and all the ramifications of that- that I feel was a missed opportunity.

That being said, with Claire as a running mate, and the upcoming season 5, I'll be looking forward to it.

Moderator- add the word "spoiler" if you can to the title to forewarn those who haven't seen season 4.

For me, season 4 was a step up from season 3, but not as good as the pre-presidential seasons 1 and 2.

That's my .02!:)

I just watched last night's episode of "The Americans". That show is on such another level that I can't even compare the two when I look back at "House of Cards". If you haven't watched "The Americans" yet, start.
