Just finished episode 3, and I'm really enjoying this so far. Normally I would wait until late May/early June to start the new HoC season (after the regular TV season is over), but the idiocy of the current election cycle had me itching for some Francis Underwood shenanigans. I know I'm still early in the season, but I almost feel the show had been building up to this season when Francis would be in the midst of a full-on presidential campaign.

I just finished Season 4. It started a little slow but ended up better than Season 3, fully as good as S1/S2.

Now we have to pretend that we don't know Claire will kill Francis after the election in S5 so she can be President. Which is not a spoiler since S5 has not been shot yet and may not have been written in more than outline form. Because after all, it's a remake of the original British production.

It should be obvious that they don't want a neat ending at this point, and that includes matching the original series. Why extend 2 more years?

I just finished Season 4 - excellent overall, and a real "out with a bang" ending.

Loved the first two seasons, but the fourth season is "if a yawn could yawn". Please kill it already.

I was really enjoying this season through the point where Francis ...

But it started to drag for me after that. The only memorable moment beyond that was when

. That was a total stand up and cheer moment.

I also didn't care for how it ended.
Spoiler!
But I guess if this series is getting another season, they had to do something.
