I think there a lot of reasons why people should watch House of Cards and I think there are a lot of reasons why people shouldn't watch House of Cards.
My philosophy in life is that humans need a proper break from the torments of reality. That's why I don't believe in working on the weekends. Subsequently, that's why I think in modern times of such political turmoil and civil unrest, it might prove itself a tad overwhelming to watch a series that boasts the same subject matter, but hey! what do I know? Maybe watching Frank Underwood could teach us a thing or two about dealing with political leaders who border on both narcissistic and sociopathic all before noon.
Any Netflix original series that's on it's fifth season HAS to be worth indulging in, but it does seem that this season of HOC is meant to be the most eerily reflective of American politics. That is to say, what we see on our computer screens shouldn't just look familiar because of the scenery (i.e. The White House), but because of the policy, the voters, and of course, the head honcho in charge—The President of The United States.
As per The Independent (and trailer below) this season is featuring the return of some major characters —Doug Stamper, Will Conway, Tom Yates, and Catherine Durant. However, it's clear Frank will be running the show.
I'm going to say that while this quote is FAR TOO eloquent to come out of Donald Trump's mouth, it is still very much so reminiscent of his particular brand of ego—"They’re like little children, Claire. We have to hold their sticky fingers and wipe their filthy mouths. Teach them right from wrong. Tell what to think and how to feel and what to want. They even need help writing their wildest dreams. Crafting their worst fears. Lucky for them, they have me. They have you.” Yikes, this one is going to be a doozy.
