    Just curious if anyone's been watching the final series?

    I've just finished it, and while I did think there was some fine acting from some good characters, overall I thought it was all a bit of a pointless, confused mess.

    Right from the start of series one it was a show I enjoyed (unusually for me, as political drama isn't an area I'd usually go for, but Kevin Spacey was masterful and that hooked me).
    I think it just went on too long, and the writers lost their way.
    Thoughts?

    It got old for me after he got shot. I can’t remember what was happening in the show. When you have a show with a style like that you gotta keep the audience guessing. Every single moment can’t be super intense for no reason.

    Check out the original British series. It's only 12 episodes, and everything wraps up nice & neat. :)

    They should have axed it after his fall from grace. They ended it on the perfect note with Claire's "My turn" comment.
