House of Cards series three landed on Netflix on Friday, which meant 13 delicious new Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright-filled episodes were there for the taking. 13 brand new nuggets of Frank and Claire Underwood action, 13 episodes that could be watched whenever you darn well wanted (thank you on demand). Basically, if you didn’t see members of your family on Saturday and Sunday, there’s a chance they were partaking in binge-watch weekend.
Many across the world took to Twitter to share their delight, shock, outrage, withdrawal – here’s our spoiler-free round-up…
Excuses were found
Addiction quickly took over
People watched so many episodes they actually thought they were in the show
Some did as Frank Underwood does and ate a side of ribs while watching
Ice cream… not so successful
Today, the struggle is real
Do not be alarmed
After all, one more episode = at least 50 minutes less sleep
Help was called for
Others were left speechless
The outside world was waved off
Time just wandered on by
Self-control became a thing of the past
Some had no need for hand-holding #bingepro
Others were competing
The end of the series brought with it the fear of coping with life itself
Real words were just gone
So, when are we doing it all again?
