Barack Obama reveals his favorite TV shows. HBO's medieval fantasy "Game of Thrones" about the struggle for control of the Iron Throne among noble families in the fictional Seven Kingdoms of Westeros is on the President's viewing list along with Netflix's political drama "House of Cards".
Obama who was once offered to do a cameo in "House of Cards" even jokingly expressed his envy of how Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey) efficiently maneuvers the halls of Congress. "This guy's getting a lot of stuff done," he joked to Netflix's CEO Reed Hastings as quoted by New York Times.
Others on Obama's must-watch list include "Boardwalk Empire", "Breaking Bad", "Homeland", "Downton Abbey" and "The Wire". Noticeably missing from his list is ABC's "Scandal" about the affair between POTUS and the White House's crisis manager. The juicy show is one of former President Bill Clinton's favorites.
