The final season is not the glorious goodbye it should have been, or the one the show's best character and best actor deserved, but there's still enough of that early elegant cruelty to see it across the line.

I doubt that I was the only one whose own lethargy gave her cause for revulsion.

This is the worst season of the series despite Robin Wright's best efforts. [Full Review in Spanish]

From the first time Claire Underwood broke that fourth wall and looked directly at us at the end of season four beside her husband, we've been craving more insight into her equally manipulative mind.
December 18, 2018
The sixth and last season of House of Cards is worth taking a peek at because, well, it's House of Cards and it put in the work to get where it is.
November 19, 2018
It's eight-hours of filler to set up an immensely unsatisfying conclusion.
November 14, 2018
The final eight episodes, which are all available for streaming now on Netflix, comes to a messy conclusion with more loose ends than a Florida election ballot.

House of Cards...trashes itself, even if it was a sort of knowing trash to start with.
November 9, 2018
The new season of House of Cards doesn't feel like an arbitrary story overhaul in response to the #MeToo crisis. It feels right.
November 6, 2018
The final season of House of Cards is too weird and atonal to ignore completely, but it's not good enough to recommend.
November 6, 2018
Wright is truly stunning on the final season, and gives every second on screen her all in a way that suggests she's always known this should've been her show.

House of Cards's sixth and final season really shines in the middle, when Claire is forced to defend every square inch of her presidency against the Shepherd family's abominable ambushes.

Robin Wright has stepped sublimely up. She dominates by simply inhabiting, as did Francis, every scene in which she appears, and one sees the skull beneath the skin throughout, rather than in snatches.
November 5, 2018
For a dying series, this feels remarkably alive with possibility.
November 5, 2018
Sadly just eight episodes! I'll miss Madame President's to die for tailored suits.
November 5, 2018
The story of Season 6 just doesn't cohere; it barely even tracks well enough to summarize. In a way, the total breakdown is sort of beautiful; it's like watching the story collapse in upon itself, a deserted building, carefully demolished.
November 5, 2018
Robin Wright is many things, but possessed of a light touch she is not.
November 5, 2018
What was once macabre is now mundane.
November 5, 2018
Robin Wright is such a seasoned pro that she easily dominates the screen with her measured, observant take on the role.
November 5, 2018
Dealt that bad hand, the "Cards" writers have responded with a truncated final season -- one that elevates Robin Wright's role her new Commander in Chief status, while still providing a window into the world of bare-knuckled political brawling.
