Brilliant Finale to drool for Season 3
15 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So remember when we were all praising Breaking Bad for its brilliant writing? This season of the House of Cards deserves the same. Even though it did not match Breaking Bad's last 4 episodes in intensity (which is kind of unmatchable) the writing and the tension were brilliant, leaving us drooling for season 3.

What I love about this series is that it creates tension through a tactical journey. So often tension is made by flawed characters, doing stupid things that make me want to slap both the writers for producing such cheap garbage and then slap the actor for making me lose faith in humanity. This show keeps our heroes performing at the top of their game. The way Frank and his wife influence and manipulate people is very plausible, most of the time. And if you disagree with my last statement, that is because you've probably never been around or been friends with sociopaths, who will lie to your face at every opportunity they get, always with a perfect story to fix everything in their favor.

I will finish by saying that this was a great achievement in cinematography. Not only did this season give us perfectly executed story to follow, it gave as an insight into human nature. A real, significant and important insight. The House of Cards shows respect to all of us, for it's mere existence. We can watch it and appreciate that there are people who make beautiful things and more importantly, those people understand that some of us crave something genuine, something real, something that will make us think about the reality of the world, ourselves, and the conniving bastards around us. The House of Cards granted us that wish.
