Watch kids gamely act out Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Breaking Bad, and other Emmy-nominated shows

Hollywood is gearing up for next Monday's Emmy Awards, and the preparations include official parodies. But better than watching actual Emmy nominees Bryan Cranston and Julia Louis-Dreyfus horse around, why not sit through an adorable bunch of amateur, prepubescent actors show you what Breaking Bad, True Detective, and House of Cards look like to kids. These young thespians, rounded up by the parenting site Mom.me, have some nice socially conscious zingers in their Mad Men and Downton Abbey reenactments, but the show they seem most comfortable with is Game of Thrones. Huh. (Warning: There might be spoilers, especially in the Breaking Bad bit — though if you haven't watched the show by now...) --Peter Weber
