House of Cards Season 3 Just Showed Up on Netflix For One Magical Moment

ARGH! House of Cards season 3 was up on Netflix for a few tantalising moments. The new season of the Kevin Spacey vehicle is supposed to drop on February 27. But something happened and it was live today. We were watching House of Cards! And then just as quickly as it was live, it was down. All life is woe.

If you are in the middle of watching an episode, it will keep streaming from what we can tell, but if you navigate away from the season page, you'll lose it. DONT STOP NE

Rats! I had cleared my evening. I informed my editors that I wasn't going to sleep tonight because I would be chilling with President Underwood. And then it was all taken away from me. I am inconsolable.


    Just 2 more weeks, just 2 more weeks, just 2 more weeks.

    I really am not enjoying House of Cards, I tried to get into it, but it feels forced and overacted.
    I loved the original BBC series, but the Netflix one just hasn't gelled for me.

      I tried Mad Men and The Wire. Neither of those did it for me. 30yo male for those wandering.

      The British one's even more overacted, but I agree that it's a better show and I think it's just in the nature of the story. The British show is an inverse of the traditional tragedic structure - Urqhart uses well-meaning characters' flaws (a need for acceptance, fame, power, etc.) against them in a psychotic manner in order to rise up the pole - the asides to the camera explain how logically each piece falls in place once you realise that Urqhart doesn't have empathy for the other characters. The American one doesn't seem to have that underlying structure and it just becomes "Underwood is smarter than everyone so he wins LOL".

      There's no centre to the story that holds it together or invests the viewer in Underwood's rise, and it's not helped that I find the remake's dialogue pretty weak.

    I already have them if you want to swing past and collect them Mario......
