'House of Cards' Season 5 Premieres May 30th, 2017

This is the weirdest thing, because my mom was streaming season 2 for a few episodes before dinner. She asked me if I still wanted to watch inauguration coverage on CNN and I said, "No, I'm good. I mostly wanted to see the parade..." So, she says she wanted to "watch her show," and the next thing you know I'm watching that ├╝ber Machiavellian schemer Frank Underwood. (For those into the series, we just finished the episode where hottie Kate Mara's character gets thrown under the subway, literally.)

In any case, my mom went to bed so I thought I start watching at season 1, episode 1. I know what you're thinking: "Oh my gosh, you haven't watched it yet?!! My word, it's so good, blah, blah..." Well, the fact is, I try not to watch too many shows --- they take up too much time, time I should be spending reading books, which I see as a far more valuable recreational endeavor, considering I'm a professor and all that.

But what the fuck? My mom got me interested. So, I just finished the first episode of season 1, and right now I'm pausing for a few minute to get a refill of wine, take a leak, and check Twitter and the blog. And what do I find online? This teaser tweet from Netflix on the debut of season 5, due 5-30-17.

In any case, more at Variety, "'House of Cards' Season 5 Gets Premiere Date, Teaser."

The full teaser video's at the link.

I got to get back to bingeing. I'll have more blogging later, heh.
