Just finished this season.  The last two episodes are probably the best of the entire series.

The final scene of this season...that's how you end a fucking season.

Glad it gets better. I'm on episode 5 or so and getting tired of the excessive dream sequences.

Season 4 was so much better than season 3.  Just finished it Sunday and hot damn what a closing scene!

This season starts off poorly and I almost lost interest but the back half of the season is just great.

The second half of this season is great, but if this series ends with anything but the total destruction of the Underwoods I will be furious. The shit they get away with is getting insulting if its not used to build up to the sins of their past doing them in for good.

I agree. The final season pretty much has to be about their downfall.

First half of the season was weak, the second half was excellent, back to season 1 excellent imo.

However, I really wish they had just spent 2 more episodes and ended it.  I really don't know if I want a whole season of him fighting off everything.  They set everything up for him to fall and we KNOW he's going to fall (there's no way he is going to come out ahead, both because of everything happening in the story and because it would make a crappy ending).  I have a feeling the next season is going to drag out what they could have written in 2-3 episodes and ended on a high note.

I don't think they next season will drag so much as it will slowly ramp up the consequences to the breaking point.

It's better than last season.

Entertaining.

Can't stand the actor who plays the Republican nominee.

Edit: Conway.

He was in The Killing, playing an entirely different character.  Are you sure you can't stand the actor rather than the role? I think he's terrific, as an actor, playing the role of odious, complicated characters.

I thought he was pretty awful as well until the last two episodes.  That speech he gave at around episode 7 or so was just so wooden and uninteresting.  It got better, but he's still largely unremarkable.  Thankfully, it doesn't matter since he's just a foil for Spacey.

It looks a lot like they are building to the UK ending. And I don't think either their complete downfall or success would be all that satisfying.

For some inexplicable and unexplaianable and completely unpredicatable way, this show is going to end after the next season airs.

Probably a good plan better to end strong with a set goal than try to keep going past the point they can hold the story together.

I don't know - I think they've done ok since they fully committed to being batshit insane about half way through season 4.

Season 2 and 3 were the problem. Just. Too. Damn. Long.

They could and should have been wrapped up in about 8 episodes total.

Well yeah.

Urquhart made it through to the end of s2 in 5 episodes and each with about of a quarter of the dialog Spacey appears to require in an hour's television.

This is one of times when replacing the lead actor with someone else and not saying anything to the obvious change would be much appreciated. fucks.

This show is dead without Spacey.  Put a fork in it.
