While you're sitting on the couch watching TV this weekend and feeling like you should be doing something more with your life, take comfort in the fact that the leader of the free world might be doing the exact same thing!
According to a report in the
The Times reported that Plepler passed the request for DVDs on to one of his assistants with instructions on how to make sure they end up with Obama.
And being the president, it's a safe bet that Obama won't have to settle just for what's already available. He'll no doubt be relaxing with the entire first season of "True Detective" (only four episodes have aired for the rest of us) and a lot of the fourth season of "Game of Thrones," which isn't scheduled to air until April 6.
Obama is a noted fan of TV dramas, but one who leaves that procedural stuff by the side of the road. Among his previously reported favorite shows:
Surely there's something appealing to the president about watching "Thrones," which dramatizes the brutal and sometimes deadly jockeying for power in a fantasy world.
But even if he's manages to watch all 10 episodes of the new "Game of Thrones" season this weekend, don't worry too much about spoilers. If the guy can keep the location of Osama bin Laden to himself, surely he can avoid discussing the "Purple Wedding" for a few more months.
