Got Netflix yesterday and watched 11 episodes so for, that's good for me considering all I basically watch is football, Jeremy Kyle and comedies. The reason I don't watch stuff like this is because I find it hard to follow but I'm following this so far, the only thing I don't get is who is this Rachel person? I'm only on the 11th episode so I imagine it should come clearer.

Got to the end of series 1, no idea why Rachel is such a big part of it, I know she was there when Russo got pulled over but that's all. But what happened at the train station (I won't spoil it for those who don't know) was mental.

Just finished Season 1, and started season 2 last night. Shocking twist! (i.e the metro)

Finished watching this a couple of weeks ago, absolutely loved it. Definitely recommend it. It is true that it does go downhill but that's simply because series 1 was so good it's hard to maintain that level.

Ploughed through this on Netflix too, really enjoyed it. Just about the end of Series 2 already. Not been hooked on anything like this since Breaking Bad

Just watched all 3 seasons in the last week or so, loved it. Underwood is a great character, I did find myself rooting for him throughout despite his evil ways, get AmWorks in full flow! I still cant get over the threesome with his security and wife, that end scene of that episode had me in shock and laughter for ages. Thought we were going to get a repeat with the author!

Anybody seen the latest trailers? Looks like it will be another gripping series. Back at the beginning of next month.

Very excited for this to come back, will no doubt be doing a rewatch in the week or two before it, then just enough time to get through this before Daredevil's 2nd season.

Its very good - I'm not even sure where i am but pretty sure its towards the end of series 2. I love it when the lead character is a complete bastard, its quite like Breaking Bad in that sense.

went downhill when they got rid of Kate Mara. Season 2 really was shite.

1st episode down, good start. Always starts quite slowly and then picks up during the second half.

Onto episode 6 now, starts slowly but has just kept on picking up speed. MUCH better than season 3.

Just finished it. Loved it. The last episode is brilliant, Kevin Spacey is so good.

Just watched Episode 4. MEECHAM! One of my favourites. Great episode though. I really want Frank to show Claire who is boss.

Really did binge watch this season. Think it took me three days to finish.

Felt much better than S3, at least they redeemed Claire a bit.

Lars Mikkelsen is great, need more of him.

Nearing the end of this now, one of the best seasons - probably my favourite since Number 1.

Agreed. Season 3 was such a disappointment,
felt like they didn't know how to write Frank or Claire's characters once they had got into power and weren't scheming to get there.

This season was much better, back to its roaring best. Level with Season 2 for me, not as good as Season 1, but I doubt they'll ever reach that level again
(especially without KM).

Just finished this. Surprised there are not more posts. Fantastic series that you would have to put on par with Series 1. Its set up perfectly for Series 5 now........how the hell am I gonna wait that long though! :-(

I like the 1st part of season 4. Bit disappointed with the 2nd part. Those who watched it know what I'm talking about.
