Last week, Kevin Spacey received an Emmy Nomination for his portrayal of Frank Underwood, the corrupt and conniving congressman in the Netflix TV series House of Cards. The character is just the latest in a long list of TV anti-heroes to appear on-screen in recent years. Author Brett Martin argues that these bad boys, and the men who created them, ushered in a new golden age of television. His book is "Difficult Men: Behind the Scenes of a Creative Revolution: From the Sopranos and The Wire to Mad Men and Breaking Bad."
