House of Cards is back back! Back again. I'm one episode in so far... but i'm anxious to finish season 3 soon, the whole thing is up on Netflix which means 13 hours after its release - people potentially could have already finished watching the whole thing. It's like Game of Thrones all over again, I'm going to have to live in a cave... a Netflix cave made out of pillows and popcorn.
Screw you, Mr President, for messing with my job. How so? Because he, Francis Underwood (Kevin Spacey), and it, House of Cards, are so damn good they’ve changed the way we watch TV. The entire third series went up on Netflix on Friday. Maybe you pigged out over the weekend, devoured the lot obscenely. Or perhaps you exercised more self-discipline and restraint. It’s also possible you don’t do Netflix and you’re waiting for the box set. All of which makes writing about it difficult; I’ve no idea how much, if any, you’ve seen. So, this is a sort of spoiler/non-spoiler alert, then. I semi-binged – three episodes – but I won’t give away anything important beyond the first. OK?
