Claire settles all family business on a murderous House Of Cards 

B

Claire’s choice of movie viewing a few episodes ago and the Gothic horror overtones to the soundtrack music of late have prepared for this moment: the spawn of Satan—or of Frank and Claire Underwood, close enough—is being loosed upon this world to bring about the end times. Contrary to my prediction in the previous…

Claire makes her big move on a pivotal House Of Cards

B+

Does Claire’s long con hold up to any scrutiny? Granted, this is House Of Cards, so plausibility is measured on a sliding scale, but it’s hard not to spot the flaws in Claire’s scheme even as it’s quite a bit of fun to watch it play out. (This show in a nutshell, really.) At the very least, it gives Robin Wright some…

Now at the center of House Of Cards, Claire Underwood remains an enigma

B-

Maybe Raymond Tusk had the best take on Claire Underwood. As Bill Shepherd tells her after a tense exchange of threats, Tusk always wondered whether Claire was a real person or just playing the part of one. That could read as a meta comment on Robin Wright’s performance as well. There’s an unknowable essence to…

Frank haunts the final House Of Cards season premiere, but it's Claire's show now

B

Francis Underwood looms large over the sixth (and final) season premiere of House Of Cards, but he’s nowhere to be seen. You may have heard something about this. Production on this season was abruptly halted a year ago in the wake of sexual assault allegations against star Kevin Spacey, and not long afterward the…

Here's what's coming to (and leaving from) Netflix in November

Yes, we know you’re excited about House Of Cards’ Kevin Spacey-less sixth season, but there’s more pressing news here: On November 30, Netflix will unveil the highly anticipated sequel to A Christmas Prince, the movie that 53 people watched every day for 18 straight days. “A year after helping Richard secure the…

House Of Cards declares “the reign of the middle-aged white man is over”

No point beating around the bush, we guess. In the newest promo for the final season of House Of Cards, the newly anointed President Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) reminds viewers that her husband of thirty years is now dead and declares “the reign of the middle-aged white man is over.” Throughout the teaser, we’re…

So, did Claire piss on Frank’s grave in this House Of Cards teaser or what?

In case you were worried that House Of Cards was kidding around about this whole “We fired Kevin Spacey’s predatory ass and then killed off his character” business: Here’s Robin Wright, reenacting one of the political thriller’s most infamous scenes, the season-three-opener in which then-President Frank Underwood…

Robin Wright says she didn't really know Kevin Spacey: "We were coworkers"

House Of Cards will return for its sixth and final season later this year, with Robin Wright running things on and off screen. There’s still a President Underwood in the show’s White House, but it’s now Claire, who’s also served as Vice President. And in a case of life imitating art, Wright has stepped up to lead the…

Media visionary petitions Netflix to replace Kevin Spacey with Kevin James 

Netflix has already fired Kevin Spacey from House Of Cards, meaning the show will wrap up its final season without its star—and also, as Netflix surely hopes, without the significant amount of controversy that now follows him. Of course, that’s probably going to necessitate a significant number of rewrites on House Of…
