Wait a sec, when someone refers to a "series" in the UK, how does one know if they're refering to just a "series", or the entire run of the show.
I believe the preferred British term for the overall show is "programme."
Yep. Or "show". Mind you, I've found myself at times using "season" when talking about British shows. Cultural osmosis and all that.
Strange thing, it's really become interchangeable. I'm railing against it and saying series even for American shows now though. But on the subject it reminded me of this...

You sit around here and you spin your little webs and you think the whole world revolves around you and your money. Well, it doesn't, Mr. Potter. In the whole vast configuration of things, I'd say you were nothing but a scurvy little spider!
