A House of Cards binge is the perfect time to clean your house or do your dishes, and you only really need to lock in when Meechum makes an appearance. At least, that’s how we play the game that is watching the interconnected political intrigue of Frank Underwood’s Washington, D.C. But even if you don’t leave your couch for the nearly 11 hours it takes to consume the full season, you’re probably a little hazy on what happened when Netflix released the last installment a year ago.

Well, go grab some ribs and destroy the restaurant owner’s hopes of a franchise while you’re at it, because The Fine Bros. put together a breakneck pace, under-10-minute House of Cards recap of the entire first and second seasons and it’s the perfect refresher before you dive back in on Friday. In fact, it’s the only way we could remember what happened at the end of Freddy’s BBQ storyline to make that reference to it a sentence ago.

If you’re good with season 1, the season 2 recap starts around the five-minute mark.

Now that you have studied up, get pumped with the trailer for season 3 to be released on Netflix this Friday
