Obama Loves GoT, Every Other Top Cable Drama -- Daily Intelligencer

When he isn't running the country, President Obama finds time to watch every show friends say he really has to watch. He's working his way through the DVD box set of Breaking Bad, and has said he's a fan of Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, House of Cards, Downton Abbey, The Wire, Mad Men, and Homeland. Obama is also into Modern Family and Parks and Recreation, but the New York Times notes that in general he seems to prefer "the kind of heavy, darkly rendered television that echoes the sadness and strife that make up so much of his workday." It sounds like he'd enjoy Scandal too, especially since Bill Clinton is a fan. They can call each other up on Thursday nights and awkwardly chug red wine every time Monica Lewinsky is referenced.


I'm impressed that he finds time to keep up with all these shows.

If he's watching Homeland beyond the first series then his taste stinks.
