    House of Cards

    If anyone hasn't seen House of Cards, I'd highly recommend it!

    Here is the trailer for season one:



    To those who do watch it, what did you think of season 3? I thought it was great!

    I've tried so hard to genuinely enjoy this show but I've never been able to get myself as immersed in it's fictional universe as others have. The cinematography is gorgeous without a doubt (I love Fincher's style) but other than that, I just haven't been able to care one way or the other. Most of the characters outside of Frank and Claire are almost borderline indistinguishable from one another.

    I'll stick with Lilyhammer and Orange is the New Black lol

    I love it. Season 3 was great and just left me wanting more. It's not as fun as TWD but it trumps it in about every other category.

    I still have to finish Season 3. Even though it's not my favorite kind of show, specially because of all the fancy politics terms in it, surprisingly I really enjoy it! I'd recommend it to people who enjoy a more serious kind of drama, but it can be quite "boring" (that's not the more apropriate word, but I can't think of any other) sometimes.

    I really liked Season 3. It was much better in terms of having a clearer direction than season 2, which struggled sometimes and had a little too much going on. Also Claire is honestly the best character EVER.

    I'd recommend this show for someone who enjoys political dramas (think West Wing) but isn't expecting something that is so fine-tuned to reality. I mean, there are some pretty crazy things that happen in season 1 and season 2 that leave you going, "That CANNOT be possible in real life!?" but it makes for good drama. So as long as you are not turned off by some of the occurrences that happen in Frank and Claire's world and again like political dramas or politics in general, I'd highly recommend it.

    Just finished Season 3 and it's safe to say that this is my favorite season so far.

    Claire and Carol are my two favorite female characters on television right now.

    I always liked Claire, but she was flawless in Season 3.

    Claire is EVERYTHING in season 3!

    "I should have never made you President."

    "I want you to fuck me Francis."

    "I'm leaving you."

    I hope she fucking topples his empire next season. (which I think should be the last...52 cards in a deck....52 episodes)
