It's always gonna be compared to it's superior BBC counterpart, but this new spin on Sherlock Holmes is enjoyable and despite it's formulaic cop show plots, does well mostly thanks to Jonny Lee Miller's wonderful performance.
After a great Season 2, the show takes a bit of a momentum dip. While the acting is still top notch, with no higher rung on the ladder to climb, the plot somewhat stagnates now that the Underwoods deal with the pressures of the Presidency.
As if it couldn't get any better after Season 1, Season 2 goes darker and edgier than any other show. Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright continue to become icons of evil ambition as the Underwoods set their sights on even greater conquests.
