Critic Reviews for House of Cards: Season 5

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (9)

Stepping back into the Underwoods' White House feels familiar, but it's clear that the show's creators have gone to great lengths to avoid using the same old tricks and tropes.

That Season 5 of Netflix's flagship program doesn't feature much in the way of drawing out the wild interior lives of these characters is one of the primary reasons that the show feels stuck on autopilot.

June 13, 2017 | Full Review…

Together, Spacey and Wright power a microwave year of House of Cards that reheats our interest for the franchise.

Halfway through this season, the only thing I can say with the utmost certainty, and with great difficulty as it does bring entertainment above all else, is to just let it go.

The Young Folks

Five seasons in, House of Cards still trades in predictable scripting that recycles the same themes time and again.

The bleakest (yet somehow still extremely fun to watch) season of the show yet.
