Feb. 14 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg chief White House correspondent Phil Mattingly reports on the excitement on Capitol Hill for the new season of House of Cards on Netflix on Bloomberg Television’s “Bloomberg Surveillance.”


They even started petitions on tuesday when he recognized it would be a snow day, to get them to release "house of cards" a day early.

Top washington officials just assume that netflix is going to have to respond to a couple hundred washingtonians who want to watch it early.

I kid you not.

I have staffers e-mailing me since 3:00 and 4:00 in the morning, everybody waking up.

Government does not open until 10:00 a.m. this morning, meaning everybody getting an x to jump on it, tom.

Big deal down here.

You talk to a couple of people about what they thought about "house of cards." what did they tell you?

We took a camera and we wanted to see what lawmakers had to say about "house of cards." take a listen.

The only unrealistic thing about the show is a democrat could represent gatsby, south carolina, it will never happen.

Unfortunately i think kevin spacey makes it look a lot more exciting than it is an allotment devious, but will be interesting to see what they do with the new season.

He's probably a composite.

None of us are quite that interesting.

I am one of the few living americans who has not watched it.

Obviously, guys him and not just the staffers watching up at all the lawmakers as they head out of town this weekend they claim they plan on spending this week and binge watching this like anything else.

You look at this -- and you know a lot more about this than i did -- the morality, or the ethics.

The cynicism.

How does a fold over to washington?

Tell me it ain't so.

I think it goes a little extreme.

I think everybody with a technology may be a little bit further dan where -- what it actually is.

And not everything is so planned out in d.c. / they make it seem like that there is a puppetmaster.

You really need to watch the house republican conference to recognize these people do not have everything planned out 5, 6 that's ahead.

A lot of times they are making things up as they go.

Very entertaining.

Also something else.

Not just capitol hill pays attention to it of the white house as well.

President barack obama ossie official organizing fractions would account weeded out "house of cards" no spoilers.

No spoilers for you and me but i will give you guys one little hint -- late in the entire season, keep an eye out, my colleague white house cheaper sponsor extraordinaire julianna goldman makes an appearance, according to sources familiar with the show.

Phil mattingly, thank you so much pretty important bloomberg television information.

You love it.
