My mentor watches it and swears by it. I haven't seen it. This is a weird way to put it but it seems a little too...dramatic, for me. At least as far as politics goes. I like The West Wing, which was pretty realistic in my opinion.

I saw a couple episodes of that, seemed kinda lame. House of cards is really good. really good directing

I watched up to mid season 2 a while ago, but stopped because I lost internet. Haven't picked up again.

The show lacks likable characters. I mean, every single character is wholly unlikable for different reasons, but I suppose that's sort of the point. Everybody is awful, and the most machiavellian always wins.

Having said that, I really like the show, and I like the "modern Shakespearean" angle they play it off as. Season 3 was a big let-down from season two, because the season essentially ended zero-sum with Underwood neither gaining or losing much political ground, but this latest season made me excited to see where the series goes, again.

I agree with this. I also think the acting is brilliant even if the writing is dramatic (and it sure is).
