Binge watching your way through the latest Netflix series doesn't have to be a guilty pleasure. For years, TV has been considered the candy floss to the meatier offerings at the cinema. New Yorker Magazine TV critic Emily Nussbaum is on a mission to change the way we think of TV.

She celebrates what's good on TV and makes the case for considering some programmes like Jane The Virgin, The Sopranos and even Buffy The Vampire Slayer for their artistic and cultural value. Her new book is called I Like to Watch: Arguing My Way Through the TV Revolution
