Sharon and I finished the fifth season of House of Cards on the Friday of Labor Day weekend. We finished season one in October of 2016, season two in November of 2016, season three in April and season four in June. This season was originally released on May 30, 2017.
Season five follows the twisted events of Frank Underwood's (Kevin Spacey) reelection as President of the United States. The season ends with Frank's resignation as President. As Vice President, Claire Underwood (Robin Wright) then becomes President. The last episode closes with Claire staring towards the camera audience and coldly declaring: "My turn."
We have watched a lot of House of Cards over the last year. While I enjoyed season five, I don't think seasons four and five are as good as the first two seasons. I didn't like season three. Although I often felt like the storyline of season five jumped the shark, those feelings were tempered whenever I turned my attention to the real world... Netflix has not yet announced a season six.
