Just when you thought the Underwoods couldn’t get any more unrepentantly evil, along comes Season 5 of “House of Cards”. I cannot think of two more ruthless, power-mad, stop-at-absolutely-nothing-to-get-what-they-want people than President Frank Underwood and First Lady/Vice President Claire Underwood. Frank is more hot-tempered, while Claire is the quintessential Ice Queen, but both of them believe that the end justifies the means. There is a lot going on in “House of Cards”, much of it being the normal (it seems) scheming, lying, back-stabbing, and double-crossing that goes on in the world of politics. Season 5 finds the Underwoods struggling mightily to keep ahold of the power they’ve worked so hard to acquire. There is a sense of desperation among many of the characters, as if they had been dumped into a shark-infested ocean of politics and intrigue, and are just trying to survive as best they can. Of course, that desperation leads many of them to do whatever nasty, sinister things they have to, in order to either keep the power they have, or to keep their access to those that have the power. “House of Cards” has always been an extreme example of the use and abuse of power, of getting it and keeping it. Season 5 continues that story.
