Critic Reviews for House of Cards: Season 5

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (12)

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.

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.

October 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?
