These are heady days for the online on-demand entertainment service Netflix. The company's stock recently surged 22% after a strong earnings report and news that it signed up 2 million new subscribers in the first quarter of the year. The company's success has largely been credited to its move into original content -- particularly its political drama “House of Cards.” With David Fincher on the creative team, the show follows the political trials and travails of mercenary Democratic House whip Frank Underwood and his equally mercenary wife Claire.

The second season of Netflix's political thriller "House of Cards" got released at midnight PST, and while many wasted no time tearing into the twisty Kevin Spacey-Robin Wright series, there's one fan who's going to need a little time to catch up. And God help you if you discuss spoilers. President Barack Obama, who seems to be quite the TV junkie, tweeted a word of warning to his followers on Thursday: "Tomorrow: @HouseOfCards. No spoilers, please. " A previous report revealed that Obama desired to watch DVDs of the upcoming season of "Game of Thrones" and "True Detective" during his weekend trip to California.  PHOTOS: Faces to watch 2014 | TV According to the Associated Press, "House of Cards" cast member Kate Mara called the Obama shout-out "one of the coolest things that's happened to me," when told about the tweet at an event for the show on Thursday night.

The largely engaging class-reunion dramedy "10 Years" allows audiences to pretend they went to high school with the likes of Channing Tatum, Justin Long, Rosario Dawson, Anthony Mackie and Kate Mara. But at some point, they are also going to have to pretend the film, written and directed by Jamie Linden (the screenwriter of "Dear John" and the fine "We Are Marshall"), is deeper and more essential than it actually is; there's a lot of been-there, done-that going on. That said, this very distant, slightly more youthful cousin to "The Big Chill" presents a convincing version of a 10-year high school reunion, one that eschews excess and melodrama for a wistful visit with a clutch of decent guys and gals who've chugged forward over the last decade, some more happily - and expectedly - than others.
