so i been waiting for the new “house of cards” season on netflix.
as you know,
netflix only updates their show’s seasons every year.
so when it dropped last tuesday,
i was hype af.
right after the memorial day weekend festivities…
who am i kidding?
i didn’t really do shit.
so i finished the entire season 5 today and…
I’M PAINFULLY UNDERWHELMED
the season started out so strong and took a severe nose dive.
they played the fuck out that election debacle.
it did not need all those episodes.
i did like seeing this snow wolf tho:
“will conway” played by joel kinnaman.
he is tall and muscular thick.
i wish we would have gotten a better sex scene from him tho.
this season was an eye opener for me on how the government works tho.
it mainly focused on:
- voter manipulation; how things can be schemed to make someone win
- creating drama to take the focus off something major in the underwood’s case,
they created a fake terrorist attack to start a war.
they did it so it could keep their impending scandals out the headlines.
i wanted more.
i felt it could have delivered,
but it jumped the shark towards the end.
a lot of random shit left me with questions:
how you push someone down some stairs before their testimony?
what was will conway’s secret?
why are all these damn characters getting killed off?
who the fuck is this random snow bunny who was poorly written in?
the upcoming season should be the last.
i don’t think there is anymore they can do at this point.
they sort of written themselves into a wall.
seasons 1 and 2 were the strongest.
season 3 was a bore.
season 4 was a solid comeback,
but i’m “ugh” on this season 5.
i liked seeing francis scheme for power in his rise to the top.
he is the big bad wolf you find yourself rooting for.
i can’t stand him now and i want him banished.
