Critic Consensus: House of Cards enjoys a confident return to form this season, though its outlandish edge is tempered slightly by the current political climate.

Critic Reviews for House of Cards Season 5

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (14)

Enjoying this show going forward may mean divorcing it from the national entertainment of the moment-politics-and instead reveling in its scene-to-scene sneakiness.

A good start after last season's erratic finish.

Top Critic

Having laid to rest the long-standing charge that House of Cards was too absurd to be taken seriously as "prestige television", the Netflix caper has rediscovered its cocksure strut.

May 17, 2017 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The bleakest (yet somehow still extremely fun to watch) season of the show yet.

Top Critic

Overall the season was fine, but in the age of quality programming across the board, the flaws are far more obvious.

Oct 10, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

It must have looked like great theatre on the page, but on screen it came across as overblown and silly. Was this the moment the pride of Netflix, a pioneer in the world of subscription TV, jumped the shark?

... the series has elevated itself to an entirely new level of crazy that allows it to be more unpredictable and enjoyable again.

Feb 2, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a pact between not just husband and wife and running mates but two clawing, deadly animals backed into a corner. It's also a foreboding promise that makes the first episodes of season five an anxious watch.

Feb 14, 2018 | Full Review…

Still, it's fun to watch Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright dig into their dastardly roles with such gusto.

Dec 27, 2017 | Full Review…

Frank and Claire are at their best this season when they function as a peculiar couple speaking elevated and unrealistic dialogue, because today that's escapism: What if the villains walking the halls of the White House were thoughtful and capable?
