Also, if you could, could you add a picture of the movie's poster to https://www.thetvdb.com/series/invader-zim/seasons/0

Synopsis: Zim falls into a depression after he’s abandoned by his idols, the Almighty Tallest, leaving an opening for his enemy Dib to finally expose him as an alien.

Also, let's change the title to "Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus!"

We don't consider movies as specials unless they are a direct continuation of a seasonal arc. Thanks so much for understanding!

Well that's not true

Serenity is in no way a direct continuation of a seasonal arc of Firefly

Isn't Enter the Florpus supposed to be a direct continuation of the show?

Also, as with above, Dragon Ball Z has a million movies that in no way relate to any arcs in the show, but each and every one of them are specials. The new movie needs added to the specials.

I don't know about this new "seasonal arc" requirement, but the special is definitely a direct continuation of the show. The show itself was always very episodic, without many actual multi-episode (much less season) arcs, though there were some continuity changes. Enter the Florpus continues many of the various threads from the show; for instance, Zim was always dismissed by his superiors, and the special deals with him discovering that they don't respect him, and have no intention to actually invade even if he IS successful in his mission. It deals with Dib's relationship with his father, which was an underlying current in a lot of the episodes, and so on. I don't see how this wouldn't be considered a continuation of the show's plot, as it moves many of the blocks forward, even more than most episodes and even seasons did.

It seems someone has already added the movie as a season 01, episode 01 series.

But the Rocko’s Modern Life movie was added just last week. Inconsistent idiots.

Why not add it though? One option inconveniences a lot of people and the other inconveniences a mod for 30 seconds. It would make more sense if there was consistency across all series but, as mentioned previously, that isn't the case.

I had a similar issue with the Mr. Bean movies involving the same mod. At this point it's beginning to look like a "because I said so" type situation.
