Critic Reviews for House of Cards: Season 5

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (11)

Frank and Claire are at their best this season when they function as a peculiar couple speaking elevated and unrealistic dialogue, because today that's escapism: What if the villains walking the halls of the White House were thoughtful and capable?

Worse than all that, though, was that the show had lost its edge, its wit, its dark sense of fun; it didn't even break the fourth wall that much any more.

Season 5 does a good job of disrupting Frank Underwood's best laid plans by utilizing ghosts of the past.

House of Cards - which was supposed to show us what a truly evil politician like Frank Underwood could do with our system - has instead become a morbidly interesting way to measure our decay.
