released today on netflix
speculate wildly about the content until you've seen it then discuss below...
but didn't want to waste anything for people who haven't watched it yet
you really should though LP it's cracking
just finished game of thrones season 4 and have about 2 episodes left of the newsroom season 1 to finish.
i can't keep up with all this tv.
Still to watch:
The remaining 6 episodes of breaking bad
rest, is it worth revisiting?
you're in for a serious treat with the sopranos/the wire
when you've finished BB you should try "better call saul", it's been great so far and is only 3/4 episodes in
which is a good thing I think
was ridiculous but great
and it's been great as expected
Really hope they're signed up to do a Season 4, because it's ramping up nicely to be a whole season of Underwood on the campaign trail
more of the same really. i.e. great.
Stamper is such a sympathetic character given he's been a total bastard.
that makes you pity him
He went to pieces once sean let him go... :(
I guess doug stamper has only ruined a few lives and helped a murderous power hungry politician to the top.
I'm digging a grave in a dusty field right now.
why have you done this
why you bump thread
but the sexy scene in ep 2(?) got me horny as hell. I'd love a good wet cry-y sweaty shag on the office floor with Clare.
the one where they go to Russia to bring back the prisoner. one of the best episodes of anything i've ever seen.
absolutely love the Putin rip-off. love most of it infact - not knowing what Stamper will do, Dunbar, the chemistry between Jacqui and Remy 'Da Boi'. it's only let down by Gavin Orsay being a wet blanket.
characters of all time, only got a few episodes of this left but there's definitely another series in it at least
hasn't gripped me like the previous two. on about episode 8 but not watched it for a couple of weeks.
I watched the whole thing pretty much back to back, but yeah wasn't into it as much as the other ones. not really sure why.
but after about episode 5/6 i think it's pretty strong
the last 2 episodes in particular are fucking brilliant
Dunno what the point of it all was. I don't like how they've changed the scope of the show.
Seasons 1 and 2 were both living up to the name of the show, we had Underwood as an evil man that we are forced to like in a Tony Soprano way by also seeing his struggles. But at the same time we had various strands running in the background that looked like they could topple him, people who knew things that were dangerous to him, that might show the truth of what he'd done.
I genuinely thought Season 3 might be a finisher where he ends up being taken down in some way. Instead we get an attempt to make The West Wing but a bit more fraught. Doug's arc is just crazy and the character has essentially not progressed at all, coming back to being the same man he was and, incidentally, making sure that any remaining threats to Underwood's life are eliminated.
The Claire storyline that has run alongside it would have been great if he was just another scheming politician but to concentrate on marital strife for a man who's murdered two people in cold blood and okayed other deaths, etc. seems a bit odd.
Vaguely reminded of how the opening of The Shield sets Vic up as a total hate figure and then we spend the remaining seasons while the showrunners furiously try to backpedal somewhat because he's so popular they have to keep things going.
All that said, it was still excellently filmed, and mostly great plotting, although meeting the Putin analogue in the desert was utterly ridic. I'll be happy to watch Season 4 but it would be good if stuff actually happens in it, a bit more development of characters.
but still enjoyed it
Still enjoyable. Maybe that makes it more frustrating for me.
