House of Cards Season 3, Episode 10 Recap: The Good Wife

  No one is happy about the Jordan Valley. Petrov is pissed. Israeli and Palestine are in a miniature arms race. Claire cant keep the American involvement under control. And apparently the American people are none too thrilled with the fact that our troops are entangled in a vague, seemingly pointless peacekeeping mission that looks suspiciously not peaceful. As Frank hits the campaign trail, the town halls get teeth, as people use the Q&A session to ask what the hell were even doing there.   Frank tries to dodge, but Annie a white-haired rock star who officially has my heart doesnt let him. What is the point of having us ask questions if you wont answer them?   Read More... //

'House of Cards,' Chapter 34: A Big Storm is Coming

Frank's carefully laid plans hit yet another speed bump in House of Cards, "Chapter 34."

House of Cards Season 3, Episode 9 Recap: Bring Up the Bodies

  We begin in bliss: Look at Tom and Kate, happy coupling in hotels across the country, chasing the Underwood campaign trail while skipping all the events. Kate has been divorced twice and has a daughter in college, but Tom doesnt care. He has no expectations. I never have of anyone. You shouldnt either. Ugh, Tom is such a Cool Guy.   Speaking of guys trying to be cool: Why is Frank campaigning in a leather jacket? Its not even motorcycle-style why bother? Also, not sure how nothing is going to go over as a rallying cry. Frank is doing the whole I met a woman named Gloria thing when Claire slips him a note: eight Russians killed in the Jordan Valley. God bless Iowa, lets get the hell out of dodge.   Read More... //

House of Cards Season 3, Episode 8 Recap: Dark and Stormy

  Remember when Cathy told Claire she didnt drink hurricanes at Tulane during the most glamorous boozefest this side of the Potomac ? We werent barbarians , she scoffed.   Well, somebody in the HOC writers room is not a fan of hurricanes, because another one is headed toward the East Coast. The disaster-relief fund has been depleted by a third for AmWorks, and even minimalist prep would require $8 billion. (Of all the times to take a minimalist approach, while preparing for a hurricane would not be a good one. When readying for a hurricane, like when eating on Thanksgiving or decorating the inside of a seventh-grade locker, too much is never enough.) FEMA, fortunately, shares my view on these matters, and says they need to prepare for the worst.  Read More... //
