New House of Cards is just what the doctor ordered!
Season five of the Netflix political drama dropped on Tuesday, meaning many of the streaming network's binge-watching fans had to deal with 13 new episodes smack dab in the middle of a work week.
To help these loyalists out, Netflix tweeted out a hilarious "doctor's note" for those watchers who catch need a good excuse to digest the whole season in one sitting.
"*cough @HouseofCards cough*," Netflix captioned the pic.
So, if you catch a case of the "Netflu," as the doctor's (or rather, doctored) note calls it, the only proscription is 13 hours of quarantine.
