    Default Serial vs series

    Hi,

    could you explain me the difference between the serial and series?

    Which one do the Dallas, Friends or Colombo represent? Or have you got other examples for Waawe?

    Cheers.

    A serial is a single story broken into episodes [Dallas]

    A series contains the same characters throughout, but each episode is a different story. [Friends; Colombo]
