Hit TV Show Component Infographics

Breaking Bad
Game Of Thrones
House of Cards

Great TV series are really quite simple when you think about it. In fact, we'll probably just pop off and create our own one this afternoon.

When it all boils down, there are a handful of key components that make the show what it is, distinguishing it from all its competition. Oh, and great writing, casting and acting also tends to help too.

These excellent minimal infographics, created by Louis, a creative communications agency based in Paris, show the elements that make up eight modern classic television series - from Jesse's 'Yo' in Breaking Bad, to Howard's mother in The Big Bang Theory.

Joking aside, Game of Thrones really does look quite simple.

Check them all out below.
