A note on the usage of Series & Season
« on: May 02, 2011, 06:19:11 pm »
This is something that always drives me crazy, so here's something to help you all do things the right way round.

Series: A series of seasons
Season: A season of episodes

A season takes place over a given time period within a year, normally with episodes weekly. A series includes all seasons of any given TV Show.

Some examples:
The Simpsons - A Series
The Simpsons, Season 3 - A Season

Yeah the UK uses 'Series' as a 'Season' It's seriously confusing, just on VIVA a while ago I heard 'A Brand new eries in South Park'

The official terminology is in the OP. I hate the way certain UK channels do that, it doesn't even make sense, you don't have a season of series'!

Doesn't make any difference to me personally although I do know how frustrating it is when people keep using incorrect terminology so I shall start saying it right

LOL. This one looks so though. Like... totalitarian, hahaha. "I don't care what you like, you must not write Series instead of Season!"
