    Like Walter White, she's the antihero we love to love--conflicted, intelligent, seductive, and human-all-too-human. Claire will be done in just eight episodes. A shame because she was just getting started. Claire's turn and she makes it count.

    Following Robin Wright through this season as she reveals Claire slowly and deliberately is worth a binge.

    In this truncated season (only eight episodes as opposed to the usual 13), Wright remains outstanding. But “House” suffers from the same problem as HBO’s “Veep.” Both started as daring satires of the highest office in our land and both have been surpassed by our current reality in which every day brings a new tweet storm of chaos.

    While the sixth and final season of House of Cards is as mixed a bag as the thrilling but uneven Netflix drama has yet produced, the good news is that Robin Wright is up to the task of anchoring the show.

    There's no escaping the awkwardness that surrounds permeates this sixth and final season -- an inevitable byproduct of having to shuffle the deck, creatively speaking, after discarding one of its aces.

    The performances are excellent, maybe better than ever before. But 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. There are interesting ideas at play, though. ... Unfortunately, it isn’t until more than halfway through the eight-episode season that Claire’s big plan becomes clear.

    They are smothered by the ghost of Frank/Spacey, as well as a stifling atmosphere that’s partly a combo of the weightless writing and Netflix’s digital gloss. It was already stuffy with Spacey around, but without his Foghorn Leghorn hamming to distract us, it has become even more unbearable.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I loved the series. I always enjoyed it, even its ups and downs it was always an incredible show and this season also had a good level but it's incredibly evident that the lack of Francis Underwood was decisive for this final result.

    The last episode gives a very poor and anti-climatic resolution and is also extremely open and it's not because I was looking for happy ending in which Claire paid for everything she did but it feels like an empty and ambiguous ending.
    She got away with everything but then what? It was just that? Nor fair for the story, not fair for the characters and not fair for the audicence.

    I'm very disappointed with this ending.

Unfortunately the show doesn’t work anymore without Kevin Spacey... I really try to grab on from something as this was and still is a fantastic production and the departure/firing of Spacey was, no question, completely justified... but it just does not work without him. Not without ANY Francis Underwood. The Spacey “Francis”. Shame such a great actor threw away his career with his real life actions, but the movie industry also suffered a great deal from all of this.

    This season is an insult to the rest of the 5 seasons. You should have left it at 5.

Watched episode 1 of season 6 and will not continue with episode 2-8. Is it fair, then, for one who has not watched the full season to give it a negative review? Perhaps not. But, I would ask, is it fair for episode 1's writing and storytelling to parody and disrespect everything that came before? (i.e. Claire to the camera/viewer: "Don't believe anything Francis previously told you".) Why taint fond memories of the first 5 seasons with whatever comes after? Expand

To be clear, I don't blame Robin Wright, sheThis absolute garbage makes it clear that Spacey was carrying the show for the past few seasons. To be clear, I don't blame Robin Wright, she does the best with what she's given but without Spacey there to be her less-than-better-half, the writers have gone truly off the deep end. Nothing but current event political tripe that comes across no better than anything you can see or hear on CNN, MSNBC, or Fox. Just idiotic ideology masquerading as a drama.

    Do yourself a favor and skip it, then be thankful this is the end. Also do yourself a favor and read the original British book trilogy the whole thing was based upon. It's far more entertaining than the last 3-4 seasons of this, even WITH Spacey.
