House of Fourth Walls

House of Cards is back for a third season of devious scheming, juicy over-the-top politics, and breaking the fourth wall.
Sometimes I like to pretend that the audience is just a figment of Frank’s imagination, and that the rest of the characters just go along with his soliloquies. Funnily enough, at one point in season 3, a character says “excuse me?” right after Frank mumbles something to the camera, as though he’d heard him. Even the writers are having fun with the concept by this point.
