Kevin Spacey relaxing on set. (Netflix)

On December 4th Netflix announced that season two of its original series House of Cards will drop the first weekend of February 2014, and all 13 episodes will be available for streaming on Valentine’s Day. I don’t know if that date was chosen based on research into the love lives of HOC fans, but that’s an article for another time. This is about the joy of partaking in one of America's oldest and most treasured pastimes, binging.

But binging isn’t the only thing that makes HOC different, because that’s been going on since Twilight Zone marathons were used to nurse New Year’s Day hangovers.
