Netflix original series “House of Cards” proves addictive

by on

House of Cards may only be available on Netflix, but it’s worth buying a Netflix account just to watch the show. All 13 episodes of the first season were released last month, and thus House of Cards is likely to cause binge-watching and, eventually, withdrawals.
