Re: Netflix Presents: House of Cards (US) *SPOILERS*
For what it's worth, I didn't care for them either. As reviewers have noted, they're sometimes not necessary; and only sometimes pithy/witty, which would have redeemed them.
Could've had others doing the same thing. I really liked Russo. I'm still bummed at his fate.
Then the reviewers haven't seen the original where FU would often break the fourth wall.
And God help them if they ever have to review Shakespeare.
