The Presidential Daily Brief


  1. Meth Kingpins, Women’s Prisons, Political Machinations, and Sex Surveys

    The final season of ””Breaking Bad broke us all completely, “Mad Men” and “Game of Thrones” continued to enthrall, and ”Masters of Sex” brought what it said on the tin—and some thrilling drama. Netflix introduced several gripping series and the best/worst method for delivering them, depending on how much work you had to get done. The last installment of ”Arrested Development,” Kevin Spacey’s revamped British political backstabber “House of Cards,” and ”Weeds” creator Jenji Kohan’s hilarious and poignant women’s prison ensemble series ”Orange is the New Black” all landed with all episodes available at once. If you haven’t seen these yet, for your sake, we hope you have more discipline than our writing staff, who’ve lost entire weekends to the stories of Taystee, Poussey, and Crazy Eyes.
