Netflix’s first major original series, House of Cards has set a release date for its second season, and it’s on Valentine’s Day, which is a terrible time if you’re a TV Critic, married, and had twin daughters who were born on that day. (“Sorry girls. Kevin Spacey’s on, and Daddy’s gotta binge, but yes, I will have a piece of cake while I watch.”)
The announcement also comes with a very illuminating teaser, and by that, I mean: Robin Wright quietly smoking for 30 seconds. It’s hypnotic.
I think I’ll go put on a nicotine patch now, and work on my Valentine’s Day excuses.
