Obama unwinds from leading the nation by watching Walter White make meth

He probably doesn't have as much time to binge watch, but President Obama still kicks back just like the rest of us: watching season after season of TV shows. According to The New York Times, Obama's latest pick is Breaking Bad, which he picked up as a DVD box set. Though the series ended in September, Obama is apparently quite far behind and has been known to warn those around him not to give away any spoilers.

The Times also reports that Obama has recently been keen on Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, Homeland, Downton Abbey, Mad Men, and House of Cards as well — series that generally trend toward darker drama. Though Obama has been known to chat about his favorite TV shows before, there's no word on whether he's been quoting Jesse Pinkman as much as every other Breaking Bad fan.
