I think that should also be a solution, but I also think we should only add episodes if they are part of anthology series.

It's an episode of the show "Sherlock" which I haven't seen but I'm pretty sure is not an anthology series or "stand alone" type movies. It has the same characters and cast from episode to episode.


My primary reason for viewing "Sherlock" as worthy comes down to length. The episodes are 90 minutes, far exceeding a standard TV series, and fitting snugly in the perameters of an average movie. I can't be the only person who thinks so, considering "Sherlock's" award nominations include "best TV movie". Just because some of them continue storyline is beside the point, if that were a disqualifier, then we would also need to consider merging movies like "The Hobbit".

Thanks for clarifying that Luna6ix. I didn't realize those aspects of it.

There are 12 sherlock episodes in the database other than the series itself

The Blind Banker
The Empty Hearse
The Final Problem
The Great Game
His Last Vow
The Hounds of Baskerville
The Lying Detective
The Reichenbach Fall
A Scandal in Belgravia
Sherlock: The Abominable Bride
The Sign of Three
The Six Thatchers

These really need to be removed. Or at least give an option to exclude Episodes in Release Type.

Jack Taylor is a TV detective series - IMDB lists it as a TV series - https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6954652/


However, the series itself is not there in the criticker database. But 4 episodes of the series are there separately.

https://www.criticker.com/tv/Jack-Taylor-The-Guards/
https://www.criticker.com/tv/Jack-Taylor-Shot-Down/
https://www.criticker.com/tv/Jack-Taylor-The-Pikemen/
https://www.criticker.com/tv/Jack-Taylo ... n-Martyrs/

Can we delete these episodes & add it as a TV series? Or at least can we add it as a TV series also?

id vote for users to be able to opt in/out from that separate count. id prefer not to contaminate my search with stand-alone eps of same tvseries...like imagine u want to find some new series...and your search results are blackmirror 33%, cartoons/anime 33%, documentaries 33%. *huh!? closing criticker, deleting account* jk

Why not handle it like IMDb ?
