Quote:
Play All: A Binge-Watcher’s Notebook by Clive James (Yale) James made his name as a TV critic and he returns to the medium in a “joyful encounter” with box sets and on demand channels, arguing for the virtues of The Sopranos, House of Cards and other prestigious series: they hold the position in our culture that classic literature did in previous times.


I cannot find it in the Yale catalogue, but it's early days yet.
