Columbo Series 10, etc.

Postby wtagathis » Mon Jan 07, 2019 12:17 pm

I have 2 dvd versions of Columbo series. While other databases report/specify series in a manner consistent with DVD set, including dates of release, TVDB skips over several episodes in middle of seasons 10 and everything afterwards. The TVDB page relating to this issue is at https://www.thetvdb.com/series/columbo/seasons/all starting at the bottom at season 10. The databases that seem to be more accurate can be seen at https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1466074/episodes?season=10 https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1466074/episodes?season=11 https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1466074/episodes?season=12 https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1466074/episodes?season=13

Also see https://columbophile.wordpress.com/colu ... sode-list/

Also see https://www.metv.com/shows/columbo (you will need to click down to specific seasons starting at season10

Although I read in a prior response to this issue that certain episodes were being considered movies, for purposes of efficiency, consistency and common sense, all of the episodes should be included as episodes of season ten or thereafter instead of some later episodes being categorized as movies, especially since all the episodes are a similar format and length.

This comment is lengthy in view of the issues being raised before and dismissed.

As you didn't specify which episodes, I will simply assume, that you will find all missing episodes in specials.
As we are not a DVD database and the movies are not regular episode, they are placed where they belong with the before and after field.

Perhaps YOU are not a TV series database either. I provided other services and websites including TV channels, etc. that reflect an accurate historic record of the TV episodes. Your response was short, terse, unhelpful and not thought out. It is clear that you did not review the source materal I provided and compared it the TVDB episode listing.

I will not waste any of my valuable time again with this forum or TVDB.

I can confirm that Imzadi is not a database, they are a person. Your response was rude, idiotic, unhelpful and not thought out. It is clear you did not review the rules for this website before you posted your inane rant.

Thank you in advance for not wasting the valuable time of the volunteer staff here again.
