Game of Thrones, True Detective, House of Cards, Mad Men, Downton Abbey, and Breaking Bad all get the kid-gloves treatment. Seeing children point out the sexism in Mad Men is pretty depressing, as is hearing a little boy say, “Jesse, want to cook some crystal meth?,” though that segment sums up the Walter-Jesse Breaking Bad dynamic pretty well. The li’l Matthew McConaughey monologue from True Detective might be the best.

Actually, these Emmy-nominated shows are somehow even darker with kids.
