Audience Reviews for House of Cards: Season 3

  • May 18, 2020
    For their first ever television series, Netflix knocked it out of the park with House of Cards... for the first two seasons. Sadly, the third season is where the writing begin to get shaky and it only continues fluctuating (mostly downward) as the series progresses. The obvious discrepancy and flaw here: Remy Danton. Dare I say, Mahershala Ali's performance as Remy was on par with Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright as Francis and Claire Underwood, respectively, but the way that he is written in this season is lazy at best. Gone is the whip-smart, calculating, sophisticated lobbyist and here to replace him is the wooden, myopic, dumb Chief of Staff to the US President. The radical change is surprisingly stark when you compare him to who he once was, and it's disappointing that the screenwriters destroyed a once-formidable and -complex character with insipid dialogue for no reason. All of that aside, Frank gets to experience the headaches and frustrations of trying to push signature legislation through Congress in order to begin writing his legacy while Russian president Viktor Petrov played by Lars Mikkelsen gives him a run for his money while playing on the grand chessboard. Season three ends up being largely enthralling and a captivating look at the political drama of how the Underwood administration gets the sausage made both in Washington DC and abroad.

    What do we have here? A powerful congressman who steps up his game, becoming the leader he always wanted to be. But for how long?
  • Dec 20, 2019
    Even though the acting and cinematography remain impeccable, the writing begins to fall flat as storylines unravel and new ones entangle with a lack of realism.

    In season 3 it delves deep into a side of the Underwoods we haven't seen before and is definitely a different focus than the previous 2 seasons. I believe this season has nicely developed the Underwood's characters, as-well as Doug Stamper who is featured slightly more in this season.
  • Oct 14, 2019
    Major improvement over season 2's boring plot
  • Apr 08, 2019
    We get deeper in the characters of the Underwoods and their chief of staff Doug Stamper. At this point, it feels like been there done that, the show is fast becoming a ridiculous political drama.
  • Dec 31, 2018
    This show just keeps getting better and better!
  • Dec 29, 2018
    With Robin Wright's character becoming a more prominent presence, S3 remains a gripping political drama that involves a much deeper character dissection.
  • Dec 23, 2018
    The third season takes a major step back, the last few episodes this seems entirely like a marital drama. Sure their relationship has always been key to the show but their marital problems as the main subject just doesn't cut it for me, they are not the powerful couple we saw in S1 but the problem isn't just that, it's the reason behind it, it feels entirely like the sole reason they are fighting each other is to give the show something to rely on, and that plot isn't nearly as good as the previous two seasons.
