The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - On Tv -

The Net­flix drama – which did a lot to put orig­i­nal stream­ing se­ries of­fer­ing full sea­sons at a time on the map – con­cludes as Claire Un­der­wood (Robin Wright, also an ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer and the di­rec­tor of the fi­nal episode) faces mount­ing chal­lenges to her po­si­tion as the first fe­male U.S. pres­i­dent, hav­ing suc­ceeded her hus­band Frank (ab­sent here, as is his por­trayer Kevin Spacey, for plot rea­sons that are ex­plained) in the of­fice. Es­pe­cially trou­ble­some are two sib­lings (Diane Lane, Greg Kin­n­ear) who try to ma­nip­u­late Claire, then scheme to en­gi­neer her down­fall. Michael Kelly, Jayne Atkin­son, Camp­bell Scott and Pa­tri­cia Clark­son are among oth­ers who re­turn to wrap up their roles. (Not rated: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray)
