Re: Lost again

... I'm not talking about syndicated or DVD or netflix , ... I used DVD, streaming , ... It aired as one long episode. It doesn't matter how it was later broken down on DVD or Netflix. And IMDB is far from a reliable source on pretty much anything. Don't edit my quote to frame an irrelevant point, ...

Re: Lost again

It was normally a 120min timeslot and then was later syndicated (with some edits) to a 60 minute timeslot. Just because the show was later re-edited (such as a two-hour episode of Lost cut into two separate episode on the DVD release) doesn't mean it gets treated different after its initial airing....

Re: Lost again

Just to be clear so i don't try and use logic on other shows in the future (like the good place): Its not about the standard of the TV Show but about the networks use of single or double time slots for that given week? If we only went by the average length of the episode, shows like Twilight Zone w...

Re: Lost again

As the mods have told you Lost will not be changing. The decision is final and isn't up for further discussion. My understanding was the whole point of this sub was to have admins review policy as an appeal to a mods decision to change based on the rules, doesn't really feel like though. I don't kn...

Re: Lost again

It seems you found something close to the sources of information used to make these decisions. Unfortunately it appears the interpretation made at the time is different than yours. That is really all I can say. I have not personally watched The Office (US) but if "Goodbye Toby" is an episode with a...

Re: Lost again

The entry won't change -- so somehow you'll have to find a way to live with it. Yes - often other sources will have different entries. If using the definition of how it aired and/or was listed at the time - it doesn't make them correct. IMDB is littered with errors that are entered based on disc or...

Re: Lost again

In addition, if you are using the episode number from their website Lost season one has 23 not 24 (or 25 as i and every other preferred source think) episodes, S01E01 is 100, S01E02 is 100b, and S01E03 is 101... they continue as expected from there https://web.archive.org/web/20060104095504/http://a...

Re: Lost again

The office season 4 originally aired with 14 episodes. The Office Season 4's double episodes are listed that way because NBC's official website lists the episodes as 401, 403, 405, etc indicating that they aren't single entries. This also coincides with other TV site listings. It's also his decisio...

Re: Lost again

You are completely ignoring the context of the line in the first paragraph. I know but its still ironic, your saying it about rules but not content. The purpose of the database is to list series AS THEY AIRED on TV at the time of airing. i just mentioned this above in reply to eherberg's comment: T...
