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.

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
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.

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 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.
November 2, 2018
Audiences are left to wonder how things might have gone were this Robin Wright's show from the beginning.

The king is dead; long live the queen. That is the mantra for the sixth and final season of Netflix's House Of Cards.
November 2, 2018
It looks and sounds like great drama. It smells like ham.

November 2, 2018
The final season of House Of Cards touts consistent performances, specifically from Robin Wright, a sleek and elegant look, but still, there's the feeling of wanting more.
Full Review | Original Score: C
November 2, 2018
Wright's performance reflects all of his cynicism, calculation and deep, unhealed wounds that powered his engine, and now hers as a President who pledges allegiance only to herself and her gender.

November 2, 2018
Robin Wright coolly and assuredly handles Claire's newly appointed leading role, if only she can get out from under Frank's dead thumb.

The final season of House of Cards made me miss Kevin Spacey. It felt terrible.

November 1, 2018
The self-serious drama hasn't just morphed into a Ryan Murphy fantasy sequence; it appears to have thought more holistically about what promoting women should actually look like.
November 1, 2018
In many ways, House of Cards has accidentally stumbled onto its perfect ending... Claire is the show's dark heart.
