House of Cards is coming back for a 4th season on March 4th, 2016. I can't wait for it. Terrifying and realistic, it puts a spotlight on Washington and allows us to examine what lengths we would go to for power.
And also, what lengths we would go to in order to finish a season on Netflix. Anyway, here are the 10 stages you go through while binge watching House of Cards, which comes out on a Friday by the way...good luck.
You have missed your old pal Frank. It's about time to get your press pass on, and enter the white house.
So you sit down in your Washington best. You have some snacks and a full bottle of water. You are ready to rumble. Because it's time to watch season 4 of House of Cards!
You have a lot of feelings because like...you finished season 3 the weekend it came out. You've been waiting for a long time to hear what has happened to the Underwoods.
And of course you're going to binge watch this season in two days because...like what else are you going to do?
And the episodes start rolling. You're done with the premiere...on to episode two, three...oh my god four! The truth is spilling from everywhere! It's a bloodbath!
Before you know it, you're like 7 episodes deep and it's 2 A.M.
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO you don't need sleep! Sleep is for losers, and you're a winner!
And you feel yourself falling asleep, but President Underwood needs you! And you need him! And this is all just getting too damn complicated!
And suddenly you get a burst of energy! My God you can do it! You can finish it tonight!
Because as President Underwood says, you are entitled to nothing. Especially not another episode!
But, being human you eventually succumb to the sleep Gods. President Underwood is probably cursing your name through your computer screen.
So you have a nightmare about him pushing you in front of a train or something, because like...it could happen!
Finally, you wake up feeling like you were on the business end of this interaction: scared, tired and completely screwed over by Frank.
All's fair in politics and binge watching, can't say I didn't warn you.
Are you excited for the new season of House of Cards!?
Who is your favorite character!?
