Previously... it was all about cinema. Yet the 21st century has increasingly seen fans and critics alike switching their preference to long-form TV, where the stories, characters and talent are now centred. As pioneering HBO shows proved, you can go much deeper in (for example) a rich, rewarding 16-hour series than you can in a 90-minute blockbuster. Amazon Prime, HBO, Sky Atlantic, Netflix and Disney+ mean many of us no longer watch live TV.
But how to find you way to the killer and avoid the filler? This book has all you need to know - details of more than 100 of the best shows you can stream onto your screen today.
