This is the kind of treachery that must be the work of Raymond Tusk. Two weeks before House of Cards' premiere date, the third season of the acclaimed Netflix series was suddenly made available to stream.
After about 30 minutes, the episodes were pulled from the site. According to CNBC, Netflix blamed a "bug in the system," but it was obviously somebody trying to bring down President Frank Underwood.
Here's a screengrab of the episodes that were available on the site. Spoiler alert for those who don't want summaries: Looks like the show will follow the new commander-in-chief as he and First Lady Claire Underwood tackle the U.N., relations with Russia, a hostage crisis, and even a natural disaster.
Acting like a true political fixer, the show's Twitter account blamed the screwup on politics as usual.
