House of Cards S5 is Manipulative and Full of Power Hunger


When thinking of 'House of Cards' show, the first thing that comes to mind is Politics. Yes the show is about politics but it is also turning into terrorism -no, not the kind that blows up our homes with bombs, but of the kind that creates chaos and menace in a slow and steady fashion.

I have been watching this show for quite some time now and it has always been a kickass show. It always keeps us on our toes and leaves us hanging in anticipation of 'what will happen next?' The way it introduces characters - so many times they are dark and shady, it gives a perfect glimpse of what might be happening in the world that we are totally unaware about. It also dictates how people do foul play, just to get into the seat.

Each season mesmerizes viewers more. And the way people come into power and the way they fall out is most impressive. 

However, what is most impressive is the lead character, Frank Underwood. You hate him so much but you love him at the same time. You want Claire to be with him, yet you want them separated. It is the beauty of these characters that keeps us totally hooked to the show. 

I don’t want to put in spoilers, but election of Donald Trump has put the show even in high gears. While reading about Trump and watching Underwood, you can’t help but consider the similarities both have. I was stumped with similar strategies as well. The minds, the ruthlessness, the intolerance makes this show even more realistic now.

Overall, it is a fascinating and a mind blowing show. And now, the wait is finally over as Season 5 has released and it is impressing the world with each episode. I have watched Episode 1 and it is even more ruthless and terrorizing then ever. If I can say, it is dominating the world with its manipulation and power-hunger. A must watch...

If you have not watched the show yet, I would strongly recommend that you do. And please start with Season 1 and not with Season 5. Well, you can watch Season 5 directly but you might miss out on the charm of how Underwood actually got into power. And if you have watched all 4 seasons, don’t wait up and watch it starting this weekend.

So, set your timetables right because Frank Underwood is coming to India with the television premiere of House Of Cards Season 5 on Saturday, 3rd June, 5 PM onwards, only on Zee Café.

I hope you are going to watch it, because I am.


Love and Cheers
