House of Cards! House of Cards! It’s so close, I can almost taste it. It was a total accident that we started watching this show in the first place. We had just gotten our Netflix account for the first time and dad was lining up a queue of shows and movies that he wanted to watch. House of Cards had just been added to the collection on Netflix so he tossed it in with the rest of his choices. I didn’t really pay it any mind, we have never been a family that watches political dramas, we are more crime show people. I also knew nothing about it until after we started watching it. I was walking through the living room while my mom and dad were watching the second episode and I instantly sat down and started watching it with them. I was blown away. We were all instantly addicted and we watched it every night until it was done. My dad stayed up late to watch it and he doesn’t stay up late to watch anything during the week, not even football. It would be all we would talk about together for weeks. We would pause between episode to discuss what was going to happen next and my mom was always right because she’s way more deceptive than we are.
And then when the second season came out I had started work so they watched it without me and I was sad. And then it took me a long time to watch it because it’s not really the kind of show that I like to watch by myself because I really enjoy the discussion and the conspiracies. Also, when I watch tv alone, I like to do other things at the same time like be on my phone and play Animal Crossing so I’m never really paying attention. That’s why I just rewatch Bob’s Burgers, Parks and Recreation, and Archer in rotation because I already know all of the episodes.
Back to my original point, it’s just under one month away until Season 3 of House of Cards and we are all incredibly excited. I’m still not sure if we will be watching together or not but I’m looking forward to it either way. I highly recommend it to anyone who hasn’t seen it. Start watching it now and get caught up before the new season so you don’t get accidently see any spoilers from your friends. And if you have already seen it, rewatch it because I’m sure you’ve forgotten some things and you’re going to be really confused when the new season rolls around. Plus, who doesn’t want to see Francis and Claire Underwood and all of their friends/ enemies/ victims in action again. It’s truly and incredibly show and everything you’ve heard about it is true.
