Artistically, Season 6 of House of Cards is a flop.
October 9, 2019
It isn't easy to replace Frank Underwood, who... has become one of the most legendary characters ever portrayed on a TV show. However, it is obvious that this season not only lacked inspiration - it was lacking, in general.

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]

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.
November 12, 2018
House of Cards...trashes itself, even if it was a sort of knowing trash to start with.
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 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 2, 2018
With or without Kevin Spacey, it's possible that House of Cards had simply run its course. It's just a shame that it couldn't make one final sprint toward the finish line.

The story picks up on the 4th of July, but it hardly feels like a birthday party with so much repetitive plotting and counterplotting going on.

Season six is a web with no spider at the centre.

Plans, schemes, endgames -- who has any use for those? The crazier Washington became, the more House of Cards lost its touch.
November 2, 2018
By the time the last three episodes roll around, House of Cards' final season has abruptly buried itself in a whole host of weird, borderline anti-feminist tropes.

The gaping cynicism of these faux Washington insiders also paints a depressing picture of the actual current climate, especially against the backdrop of the real-life controversy in the White House.

House of Cards never quite maintains momentum, again; the first five episodes sent to critics are sometimes promising, sometimes plodding.

Cards has always been a show whose plot contortions could confuse and whose incremental intrigue could bore, and those problems are worse now that everyone seems to be whispering.

As the first made-to-binge show is finally over, we turn to its less high-falutin' spawn to release us from the chokeholds of binge-era mediocrity.
