The pilot of The West Wing brings more to the table than the entire season of House of Cards did. Come at me.

DG is lame. I should have met up with Cain and Shane in Pittsburgh but quite frankly I was far too drunk to do much of anything whilst I was there.

I assume we would start off with a flag football game, transition into a TV marathon (presumably watching something awesome, like Firefly [suck it Corey]), and then ending with a video game marathon of some sort. Drinking is encouraged, but not required.

I was in the same area where Xio is for a training seminar once and he kept rejecting offers of seeing a movie. Jerks everywhere.

I took a shot at you because you brought up The Newsroom for absolutely no reason as a pot shot at me and others who enjoy the show. And you know you did.

The characters are all one note and boring, and the plot is predictable and stupid in most cases.

That is my opinion, obviously.

I would say these are accurate. I am most of the way through and have to agree with the predictability of character and plot lines.

Right now I'm fascinated by it for two reasons:
1) The utterly corrupt nature of power and politics
2) The "protagonist" is not anyone we are supposed to like in any way

In that regard it has my attention, but halfway through the season I was already entirely bored of the predictability.

Melissa Joan Hart was my first celebrity crush because of Clarissa Explains It All.

Right now I'm fascinated by it for two reasons:
1) The utterly corrupt nature of power and politics
2) The "protagonist" is not anyone we are supposed to like in any way

In that regard it has my attention, but halfway through the season I was already entirely bored of the predictability.
1). This is one of the main reasons I dislike the show. Yes, I know politics is dirty. During college, I worked on a few campaigns and I saw it first hand. And I can assume the closer you get to power, the dirtier it gets. But HoC is way too over-the-top. There hasn't been a politician as corrupt as Underwood since Aaron Burr. A President's Chief of Staff would never go behind the president's back as much as this one does. And the president himself is such a *****. He is getting pushed around by 3rd highest ranking representative in the House? That doesn't happen.

2). This is similar to Breaking Bad. Walter White isn't supposed to be liked either. But Breaking Bad does is so much better. The characters, despite being terrible people, have streaks where you like them (especially Jessie). In HoC, no character is likeable at all ever.

Another thing that annoys me is how stupid everybody is. Underwood is passed over for Secretary of State and suddenly the actual nominee finds themself in controversy. It should have been obvious that the overthrow of the Speaker was his doing. He was in charge of the education bill and that was a mess. He suggested Russo and that was a mess. Yet the characters don't notice that Underwood is behind it all? These are some of the smartest, most well educated people in the country and they can't piece together the puzzle.

Everything about the show (except the acting which is one-note) is over-the-top and unbelievable.
