More Than 600 Thousand Binge-Watched House of Cards Season 2 Within 72 Hours Of Release
According to the Huffington Post, 2% of Netflix’s 33.4 million U.S. subscribers watched all 649 minutes of House of Cards Season 2 within a 72-hour time span of its Feb. 14 release.
If you did, you know that Frank Underwood, played by Kevin Spacey, is even more intense in season 2 than ever before.
The season starts right in the middle of a storyline with a real shocking scene that leaves you wondering how the rest of the season will top it.
In a way, the show itself is as narcissistic as the protagonist, Underwood.
One of my favorite parts of the show in general is the break from the scenes where the audience gets a glimpse of what Underwood is thinking, delivered as monologues with Spacey looking directly into the camera.
In episode one, Underwood doesn’t break to share his thoughts with the audience until the very last scene of the episode.
“I hope you didn’t think I forgot about you,” Underwood said.
This season of the Netflix original series proves why the show swept the Emmy’s last year.
The writers know exactly what the audience wants and like the taste of chocolate, we just can’t get enough.
If you like those quotable moments from season one you will not be disappointed.
“I’ve always loathed the necessity of sleep,” Underwood said in one scene. “Like death, it puts even the most powerful men on their backs.”
