House of Cards
From the Daily Dot
For our current cultural moment, the last season of House of Cards makes for a fitting finale. Just last year, people wondered if the show would become boring amidst our real-life political circus. But this season fascinates as a searing commentary on the #MeToo era, a reflection on the age of streaming television, and a continuation of the series' classic "ripped from the headlines" approach to storytelling, which is no less outrageous than what we read about on a daily basis. By giving the final episodes to Claire Underwood (Robin Wright), Netflix has shown how we can achieve some justice by putting talented women in the positions of power they deserve. Meanwhile, audiences are left to wonder how things might have gone were this Wright's show from the beginning.
