I know, but then I personally wouldn't allow mini-series either. The problem with these discussions is that's a constant game of moving the goalposts. Because someone knows a handful of films that are segmented or films that were aired as a mini-series on TV, mini-series get allowed. Then someone knows a couple of mini-series that are longer than some regular TV series, which then get allowed. Then someone doesn't see the difference between that an 14 seasons of Naruto etc etc. If you get wrapped up in these type of discussions, everything that's recorded should basically be allowed, which is simply not what most of the people here came to discuss.flavo5000 wrote: ↑August 28th, 2020, 6:21 pm Series like Serial Experiments Lain, Erased, Paranoia Agent, Baccano, etc. are all stand-alone short series that tell a complete story and are in fact significantly shorter than many "mini-series" like Heimat, Berlin Alexanderplatz, Hitler: Film from Germany, The World at War and others that have never gotten any kind of derision from any of these challenges.
As much as I love Lain, the experience is extremely episodic and it has nothing to do with film.
