Audience Reviews for House of Cards: Season 5

  • Oct 19, 2021
    Season 5 and we still don't know how Robin Wright's bosom looks like?
  • Jul 21, 2021
    There was lots of unrequired bluff. The show completely Lost the North Star.
  • Mar 22, 2021
    A decent season, the finale saved it. I think the 6th season wasn't necessary, the ending was pretty solid and ambiguous enough, reminding me of the 2nd seasons' ending. This was their second chance to end it in a decent matter..
  • Mar 19, 2021
    Nothing new, the power struggle continues, only that it continues in circles, perhaps what was redeemable was the twist at the end.
  • Aug 17, 2020
    This season is dreadful; it has spoiled the whole series for me. What was once a very compelling and intricate political drama, so well crafted, gave place to an implausible and nonsensical series of events, without cause and effect, very silly and completely detached from reality.
  • Apr 08, 2019
    At this point, the show is out of good ideas and writing material. The show started as a serious political drama, now it borders between idiotic and nonsensical while still taking itself seriously.
  • Feb 06, 2019
    Way too much moving away from Kevin Spacey's storyline.
  • Dec 31, 2018
    I don't know how this show could get any better!
  • Dec 29, 2018
    The power struggle between Frank and Claire hits an all-time high in S5 as the dark, political drama begins to mirror real-life politics while Robin Wright emerges as the show's main star.
  • Sep 20, 2018
    This could have easily been the final season, and problems aside I think this story has run it's course.
