I was getting that sinking feeling toward the end of season #3 of House of Cards. Robin Wright had decided to leave Kevin Spacey alone in the White House, but that didn’t mean she would soon be trying to take him down — her character is too classy and reserved and “loyal” for that kind of behavior. And so I was getting this shitty feeling that the story was feeling less decisive and a lot less interesting than it did during season #1 and #2, and that another season was in the offing because the producers decided they could get it away with it. I felt I was being led along. No more dragging stuff out!
