I noticed the database does not have a listing for the miniseries, Robin Cook's Invasion. This is apparently an unusual case since it was originally aired as a miniseries with two episodes and later released on DVD as a whole movie. I wanted to clarify the rules on this case. I read through the Bible to see if there was an example of this case but nothing seemed to apply. My first thought is that since it was originally an mini series it should be listed primarily as that. However, should the DVD release be accounted for in the movie section too?

Thanks!

Admittedly, this was hard to search for and we will try to add and alias to it to make the record more searchable, but here it is.

Thanks! Didn't find it in the search. Can something like this be cross referenced in the movie list somehow for direct to disc releases? In this case it was combined to a single movie.

We don't have that capability at the moment.
