Season 2 of House of Cards completed the rise of Frank Underwood. Season 3 is the beginning of his fall. I like the direction the writers of House of Cards chose for the 3rd season. They do some cool things in season 2. At one point you feel like you have been let in on what is happening due to the 4th wall and comments Frank made to us the viewers. Only to find you later that you that you were misled, that to me was really one of the coolest set piece in the entire series. I cannot wait for the 3rd season to start next month.
