President Obama has more power than anyone in America, but he wants to watch one of his favorite TV shows just like everybody else.

On Twitter late Thursday, the president noted that season two of the hit Netflix series “House of Cards” premiers Friday and added a request.

“No spoilers, please,” Mr. Obama said.

The president’s affection for the show, starring Kevin Spacey as congressman and Washington power-broker Frank Underwood, is well known.

In December, after meeting with top business leaders, including the CEO of Netflix, the president openly wished real-world Washington ran like the fictional version seen on “House of Cards.”

“I wish things were that ruthlessly efficient,” the president said.

Netflix executives also have asked Mr. Obama to do a cameo appearance in the show, but thus far he has not accepted.
