Are you done yet?

The second season of "House of Cards" dropped on Netflix on Friday, which was Valentine's Day (and if you are only just learning this, it is officially too late). The diabolical Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) --calculating adulterer, cold-blooded murderer and (shudder) congressional representative -- is now our vice president, which brings him one step closer to his ultimate goal: world domination (cue evil laughter). His wife, Claire (Robin Wright), is staring down Her last chance to bail on their life of obsessive ambition, and many other things are happening as well (none of which bodes well for the journalists involved.)

All of which are a far cry from the much more humane and noble political aspirations of "The West Wing," though not quite as completely insane as those of "Scandal." Join political writer James Rainey, deputy social media editor Stacey Leasca and television critic Mary McNamara, along with a few super fans, to discuss this new "House of Cards" at noon PST today. Tweet questions and comments to #asklatimes. See you there!
