In fact, these series became so popular that they caught the eye of numerous award giving bodies, earning them their first nominations and wins.
In case you’re not familiar with these shows, here’s a brief rundown on what they are all about.
“I love that woman. I love her more than sharks love blood”, is one of the most memorable and famous lines uttered in House of Cards.
