TV shows are an excellent medium through which we can better understand our global and political emotions. What are our societies scared of? Proud of? What do we think politics is, or what do we think it could become? We've looked at what Homeland and The Bureau may reveal about our intelligence services. Or, what The Plot against America has to say about the rise of fascism. We have even wondered if House of Cards pales in comparison to real-life politics! As this series will show, reality can easily outdo fiction.
