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
If I finish House of Cards rn, I won't be distracted and watching it for the rest of the week.

People watched so many episodes they actually thought they were in the show
I'm at that stage in #HouseOfCards where I'm almost 100% sure Frank Underwood is talking directly to me & is about to ask me to kill the VP— Mighty Mikey (@Mikey_Nathan) March 2, 2015
Some did as Frank Underwood does and ate a side of ribs while watching

After all, one more episode = at least 50 minutes less sleep

The end of the series brought with it the fear of coping with life itself
