Well hello there, TV super-fan! Did you know that Breaking Bad breakout Jesse Pinkman was almost killed off in Season 1? How about that Joss Whedon hated the original Buffy theme song, or Curb Your Enthusiasm served as a murder alibi? Can you imagine LOST starring Michael Keaton?

What, you thought Netflix was going to be the one to drag Frank Underwood out of the White House? The House of Cards may fall some day, but the streaming giant has officially voted to reelect its Kevin Spacey political drama for a fourth run in 2016. Mind the subway platform.
Former 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin has always proven a fickle fish to fry, at least when it comes to predicting his next move.
