"Required viewing" categorises video of any format that you expect another person to have seen before you can even begin to consider them worthy of your attention.
Most often used by geeks who will refuse to explain what they are talking about once they realise you've not seen the TV show or movie.
Can also be used for audio: "Required listening".
Me: So I said "This is my BOOMSTICK!!!"
Me: From the movie Army of Darkness... its required viewing
