Plus the TYP was original meant to be a stand alone mini-series. Unless others agree with you TYP should be counted I will consider it ineligible.
I see your point for sure--I went ahead and removed it from my list.

But don't let this stop anyone from giving The Young Pope a watch! It's a great piece of television and deserves to be more widely seen.

It's episodic. it works like 'black mirror', but didn't have a second season yet.

I cross-referenced all votes for this poll with the Mini-series Top 125. These titles are in both. Seems logical to me that all these will be ineligible for this poll to prevent overlap.
Also cross-referenced the all votes with the complete list of Mini-series, but because that gives me some results that clearly are tv-series I doubt how thoroughly TIm was in removing votes that didn't made the Top 125

Might be too late, but I've edited my list in line with the clarified rules. https://www.imdb.com/list/ls082876291/

Ha shoot : didn't "really" got deeper than visual and knowledge checking outside of the Top 125.
Hadn't thaught it could be usefull to cross reference with another lists ...
Sorry about that. :shrug:

It’s okay. Just good to know you didn’t check outside the top 125, so I know I can’t automatically disqualify anything in the complete list for this poll. You couldn’t have cross-reference with any list.

Last time we used a half-life of 20.
This time the average length = 59, mean = 50, mode = 40. Considering this poll is about every tv-series ever made since tv was invented, these numbers are very low. So I think having a half-life of 20 again, which will emphasize the top rankings. What do other people think?

Fine with me.

I do not know about others, but I deliberately kept my list short.
