Are you an Office Evangelist?
The cultish American cop show The Wire is finally coming to terrestrial TV.
It's one of a long line of TV shows that have made the journey from relative obscurity to mainstream recognition. One of the key "vectors", as a medical type might say, is the word-of-mouth spread that is possible in larger workplaces.
Here we have the Office Evangelist, the figure in the office, factory, shop, building site, or other workplace, whose job it is to persuade their workmates to watch a new show and so lift it from obscurity. They may have chanced upon the first episode or bought a boxed set on a whim.
Their espousal of the new show spreads through their friendship, commendatory conversations happen by the watercooler, and DVDs are circulated.
The Wire started out on Fx, a channel unavailable except to those with satellite and cable. But in other cases programmes have started out on unvaunted late-night slots on mainstream channels, like Peep Show, before eventually leaping into the national televisual consciousness.
Either way it's time for the Office Evangelist to have their say.
Send us examples of the ways you persuaded your workmates to watch and what once obscure goggle-box classics you led them to.
Perhaps you could tell us about how annoyed you get by people going on about programmes you can't actually watch, or how it feels to be unable to talk about a show because no-one you know has actually watched it yet.
