While the entire country watches Dr. Christine Blasey Ford testify to the litany of middle-aged (and beyond-middle-aged) white men who run the Senate Judiciary Committee, those sneaky bitches at Netflix wisely timed the release of the next House Of Cards trailer.
Robin Wright is running the show as President Claire Underwood, and in the newest trailer she remarks “the reign of the middle-aged white man is over.” Damn, Claire! It’s the sixth and final season, but it doesn’t seem like Claire is going to go into the sunset quietly. Frank is dead, and she’s in charge. See for yourself:
The trailer also shows everything from Greg Kinnear and Diane Lane playing sibling lobbyists looking to continue good relationships with the Underwood White House to what could be an assassination attempt on Claire….. But I just saw what looked like eggs getting chucked at her car. We see the return of Frank’s old minion Doug (played by Michael Kelly) as well as the reporter duo who are continuing the work of should-called-an-Uber Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara).
I still don’t even know how this last season is going to play out, but since Diane is involved, I hope they bring back that Sheryl Crow song from Under The Tuscan Sun in order to cut through tension in the Situation Room. But also, if it’s just Claire strutting in that severe bob and pencil skirt combo while barking orders at Russians and mouthy Southern senators, I think they’ve done a job damn well done smashing the patriarchy.
When Kevin Spacey was fired from House of Cards after several sexual assault allegations came out against him, we weren’t exactly sure what would happen to Frank Underwood. I mean, if Melania Trump has taught us anything, it’s that you can have a first spouse technically be present without seeing them for weeks on end. Alas, the latest trailer dropped and, well, they didn’t go that route (I guess a SPOILER ALERT after the jump).
It might be a coin toss as to whether Ellen Pompeo or Robin Wright tests fan loyalty more, as both have taken their shows 900 seasons further than most thought they’d ever go. OK, fine, only Grey’s Anatomy has had 900…House Of Cards has had far less, but Kevin Spacey’s piss poor attempt at a Southern accent made the first five seasons seem like the first fifty. But now that Kevin has been fired by Netflix and is living out his days with Harvey Weinstein on Perv-tation Island, it’s up to Claire Underwood, er, Robin to take the helm on House of Cards. If last night’s season six teaser drop gives any indication, the last season of HOC is going to maintain the sneaky frantic chaos in the White House them. How unlike reality. Continue reading
Nobody is safe on House Of Cards. You either (SPOILER ALERT) get fucked and chucked in front a subway, fucked and whacked in a desert, or fucked to death by the fireplace. In short, never have sexual intercourse on House Of Cards, or you’re going to die. The cast roster always has to get replenished on the show, especially now that Kevin Spacey was fired for his alleged predatory behavior, and Diane Lane and Greg Kinnear will be picking up where Kev, Neve Campbell, and a laundry list of others left off.

Just when you thought the behind-the-scenes terror of House Of Cards had been put to rest like many of the White House staffers on the show, a new report is out saying Kevin Spacey had more asshole lines on his resume beyond just being an alleged predator. A security detail for the Netflix show claims Kevin said just as much racist shit as the real White House occupant! Continue reading
Even though Kevin Spacey has joined the club of Hollywood assholes who will have to spend their remaining years donning sunglasses and a hoodie to do so much as go through the drive-thru at Burger King to avoid nasty glares, his show House Of Cards will start filming their final season sans the drawling diddler of a president. Sigh…if only life could imitate art. Continue reading
