  • Most of the TV show pages need formatted with infoboxes and episode guides. I've been formatting a few TV Show pages everyday I come here. Due to the shear volume, and how time consuming it can be, I'm asking you guys for help. If everyone helps by formatting 1 or 2 pages a day, we can get them all looking better in no time.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can give me in this large task.

    • I'll do what I can.  Is there anywhere in particular you would like me to start in order to avoid pages that have already been done?

    • I did most of the shows that begin with a number or symbol, like 21 Jumpstreet and The $treet. After I got bored working down the alphabet, I was just working on shows I've seen or are/were popular. So, most of the British, children, and obscure shows are pretty much untouched.

      Also, many shows that have been on the air for 10+ seasons haven't been worked on yet.

        Loading editor
    • Plus, there's a ton of new and upcoming show that need added. Wayward Pines, Scream Queens, Wet Hot American Summer, Fear the Walking Dead, Sense8, and others need added.

    • The W's are FINALLY completed!  Some of the entries were Hell itself to format.  The Wonderful World of Color boasted 35 seasons and the Watch What Happens: Live had less seasons but some of those seasons varied between 90 to over 200 episodes.  Somebody else can fill in the episode titles and stuff for those TV series, because I don't think that I can stand to look at either one for a LONG time.

    • Damn, sorry about those long series. I hate filling them out too. If a series has too many episodes, you can always leve them to the poor guy that wants to fill them out.

    • Nice job, SnowyMountain. I guess I take that one. It's more tedious do it in the Wikia compared to old Screened where you just type it in. It automatically spits an episode page.

    • Happy New Year!  And as a demonstration that I've started back up with formatting the TV Series; the S Section is done!  Whew!  It was a major bit of formatting with "The Simpsons" having 27+ seasons and "Saturday Night Live" having 41 seasons. 

      I have to admit that I couldn't find a episode list for "Shit Girls Say", "Seasme Street", nor "Sunset Beach" though their Info Boxes and IMDB links are up so that's something at least. 

      I also didn't bother to format the Anime Vice Pages; "Slayers Next" and "Samurai Girl: Real Bout High School" since they presumably will be eventually deleted.

        Loading editor
    • Oh I miss some pages. I'll delete them. I wasn't sure what we're keeping. I don't delete the pages that have a plot summary or more on it.

        Loading editor
    • As far as I know (and you may want to check with Mike too), we felt the guys at Anime Vice would focus primarily on the anime stuff so we didn't have to do it.  It would allow us to focus on other genres and hopefully more traffic on your site as anyone looking for anime stuff would be redirected to the Anime Vice site instead.  Since we're like sister sites, it made sense (at least to me) that we should try to cross-promote the other. 

      We would keep and also add any anime movies and only those tv series that were "mainstream" and by that, those TV series that have been adapted and shown in America such as Sailor Moon, Naruto, One Piece, and Pokemon for example.  Other TV shows like Avatar, Legend of Korra, and Samurai Jack which are anime-influenced but produced and shown in America fall under that banner too. 

      In some of those mainstream anime series, I was thinking that we might eventually want to include hyperlinks to any Anime Vice page in the Links Section as another form of cross-promotion too.

        Loading editor
    • Anime is pretty diverse here. For Anime Vice Wikia, we only saved pages that had more than a paragraph done. Most of our wiki editors work on non main stream anime. That means Naruto, One Piece, Bleach, Sailor Moon won't be cover on Anime Vice because there weren't any significant pages written out more than a paragraph. New Main stream anime such as Attack on Titan, Sword Art Online, and Kill la Kill + One-Punch Man that shook the anime community - I have those pages done by my teammates.

      You have to be careful with mainstream. The term changes in the anime industry. The ones you want to keep are the old shows. We don't do old shows in Anime Vice since none of wiki editors invested in writing a page for them.

      As for Korra and Avatar, I already told Mike that both Wikia will cover Anime Styled shows. Anime Vice Wikia has a big base for Avatar/Korra and RWBY. Those are the only Anime Styled shows I'm be focusing. I only focus on what the community express interested in. Samurai Jack and Teen Titan doesn't count as anime style nor does Code Lyoko. They have influences, but folks won't call them anime. Would you call Samurai Jack anime, no. Would you call Korra, anime? Yes and No at the same time.

        Loading editor
    • I'd like to keep anime shows that have aired in America on the wikia, also keep the shows that have some popularity. Basically if they've been dubbed into English, keep them.

        Loading editor
    • I'm afraid that my defintion of 'mainstream' was a bit vague there but like Mike said; basically if they were aired in America, then we should keep 'em on Hollywood & Beyond like the big names like Naruto, One Piece, etc.  I guess, if any of those other shows like Attack on Titan, Sword Art Online, and Kill la Kill ever get adapted and shown in America, then we can add them too.  In all probability, it'll take 'em a few years; I had been watching Naruto for a few years before it debuted in America. 

      Samurai Jack, Teen Titans, Avatar, and Legend of Korra are definitely anime inspired but not actually anime since they aren't made in Japan.  It's up to you what you guys over at the Vice on what you want to include or not or what you decide fits.

      As far as I know, a lot of the other shows like Ranma 1/2 and the Slayers have only been adapted to video and never actually aired here although they have been dubbed to English--frankly poorly in a bunch of those cases; I despised the dubbed voice overs and they don't really do justice to the series in my opinion.  Some of these English adaptations seem to favor some really dumb or corny jokes and I actually prefer watching a lot of the series in original Japanese with subtitles. 

        Loading editor
    • The problem with Mike's condition is that most anime series will have aired. Attack on Titan, Sword Art Online, and Kill la Kill - these three aired on Toonami recently. If Mike's condition includes BD and DVD releases (some shows don't air on TV but release an English dub instead), you guys have a wide net.

      This probably another old issue we had. Screened's scope is way broad while Anime Vice's scope was narrow. This causes issues for wiki editors. Screened's editors wanted more anime while Anime Vice wiki editors wanted non Japanese anime style shows. I knew we're going to run into this conflict for our new Wikia sites.

      My priority is aiming towards what my folks have invested time in writing pages. That's how we saved the important work. In your Wikia, you guys focuses more on episode guides than episode and character pages.

      I don't really mind what you guys keep in this Wikia. My only concerns are Anime Vice Wikia and then anime style series, Avatar and Korra, for Hollywood Wikia. I won't do anymore than that for this Wikia.

    • Let me give you a reference sheet that I have been using to track dubbed anime shows.

      http://myanimelist.net/animelist/Universalx&status=2&order=0

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_anime_in_the_United_States

      Each season, we get new anime shows. Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall. FUNimation can actually dub an anime during its airing in Japan, called a "simuldub"

      Here is a list of dubbed (with subbed) releases:

    • Great job, Snowy! Sorry for bombarding you guys with the anime stuff. Just that, it's best to do what you guys are interested instead of going after something you're not. I do the same for this Wikia and Anime Vice Wikia. There is no point of doing something you're not invested in.

        Loading editor
    • No problem.  I figured that you're right that we didn't just restrict this Wikia to American-only TV and movies but internationally as well.  We haven't stopped adding stuff from Canada, France, or the UK.  If it's on the site, we should do our best to refine it.  If we do have any anime on site, we should take care of them as well.  I'm sorry, I shouldn't have asked you to delete them. 

      It might open up the community to more people if we have a broad range of stuff for them to look at, not just American stuff.  I also had no idea that Attack on Titan, Sword Art Online, and Kill la Kill had already come to America.  It is a sign I think that we're growing closer as a global community that our viewing tastes are so diverse and all of these other countries see us as foreign markets to export their entertainment to.  If it's good stuff, people will watch it. 

      I just saw someone mentioning that RWBY might not have originated in Japan, but it is an American-made anime.  He pointed out that the Japanese got the concept of animation from us and Walt Disney and took it and made it their own unique brand and style and now, it's got a different flavor to it so that it's gone and inspired and influenced our own cartoon styles. 

      I mean Anime Vice might also cover anime and anime films but you do other stuff as like manga.  So even if we do have duplicate entries, it shouldn't matter.  Right now, a lot of stuff here at Hollywood & Beyond is from the US or heavily US-based which makes sense that the majority of the staff are United States-based (or so I think).  Hopefully, more people will eventually come to view our site and we will have more foreign contributors as well to add in their own viewpoints and TV selections. 

        Loading editor
    • I understand your point to appeal to everyone. I didn't want you guys to overstretch yourself and force yourself. That was my point in the last post.

      No, the issue wasn't duplicate entries. Shoot, I lost myself. First it was Korra and Avatar I was concerned because we had folks writing episode summaries and character pages in Screened and Anime Vice. That's more important than a bare, episode guide for a random anime or anime styled show. Because of that, I had to make a hard choice to appeal to my teammates and Mike.

      As for the other anime shows like Naruto, One Piece, and Bleach, I couldn't care less for them. I don't mind you guys had them. In fact, I didn't want to delete those Wikia pages. As you said, there wasn't much to transfer. I didn't see the point of deleting them. You were frustrated that you wanted to add infoboxes or not for them. I didn't see those pages as important because it's not stuff my teammates had invested in their sub pages, episode summaries or whatever. I don't add episode guides in Anime Vice Wikia if there is nothing to connect them to episode summaries. You guys have different goals than us. I'm okay with that. That's why I mentioned I was only after work that had been invested in. Kind of why we transfer the Star Trek episode summaries and other pages in Hollywood Wikia first because it was our best work.

        Loading editor
    • Understandable.  In retrospect, I think I was getting burned out on filing in Info Boxes on pages so much that I just didn't want to have to deal with a series page that I thought Anime Vice would be taking up instead.  Sort of like "this is not my problem" and "I don't want to have to deal with it". 

      I'm easing off on filing in the series pages and rotating through the rest of the alphabet rather than concentrating on one particular letter.  I'm also refreshing myself by watching some of the stuff that I've been meaning to get around to such as "Red vs. Blue" and "RWBY".  It's got some damn good action sequences, I'm really disappointed to find out that the genius behind them, Monty Oum passed away a year ago.  The man was a really gifted animator and probably hadn't even reached his peak yet.

        Loading editor
    • RWBY - I see your point on that. Monty did call his work, anime. I still call it anime style. I like to differentiate with origin and style because it's more clear. In this Wikia, you guys used the style and origin and I feel it's confusing especially seeing Samurai Jack with an anime category. I may be biased against Samurai Jack, but I do agree with RWBY being anime.

      Both definitions are correct. When you run a Wikia or a database like MyAnimeList and ANN, you can only use one or the other. With To Hollywood Wikia, your net is wide. I see why you're doing. I personally won't doing that way due to committment. You probably know my views.

    • Q Who?  Nope, the Q's are finished.

        Loading editor
    • At the moment, those letters are indeed some of our smallest TV lists with less than 10 entries.  V and O are also not much longer too.  Surprisingly, W has one of the larger number of entries. 

      I'm sure that there are other shows that start with O, V, Q, X, and Z out there.  It's simply a matter of time before they're added. 

        Loading editor
    • I'm not familiar with TV shows for those letters. I wouldn't expect W to be popular than the ones you mentioned.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, I'm rather surprised at how many there are for the W's too.  But it does have one of the larger number of entries I think.  I'm not surprised that there are a number of shows you've not familiar with.  I mean, I thought I watched quite a bit of TV and there are a number of series that I've never even heard of much less watched. 

      One thing about updating the entries is that occassionally I spot something that grabs my eye and I decide that I should add it to my watch list.  Sometimes it's a true gem that I reget I missed, others are so-so.  It's also a bit of surprise to find out just how many series get started and get yanked after only a few episodes.  It sorta makes me wonder just how bad they were that they vanished so quickly. 

        Loading editor
    • Some good shows also get cancelled rather quickly. Firefly only lasted 1 season, but unfortunately it just didn't have enough viewers to keep it on the air.

        Loading editor
    • True.  That does remind of "Surviving Jack".  I saw like the first episode, thought it was great and the next thing I heard, it had been cancelled only like four or five episodes in.  TV is a cutthroat business apparently.  You'd think that the TV companies would at least give these shows a full season or like 12 episodes in before just yanking the plug like that.  I mean, you have to give some shows a chance to attract an audience.  Maybe using something more than just viewer demographics like audience ratings about how good or bad a show is to balance things out for their first season.  There could be a lot of things that could impact or affect the amount of people watching a TV series, using that as the sole basis of ranking a show for cancellation or not seems rather arbitary.  At least to me.

        Loading editor
    • I'm guessing most people now don't even watch shows when they originally air. Tivo, On Demand, Netflix, Hulu, etc. have changed the way people view shows. They should definitely let shows air a whole season before pulling the plug on them.

        Loading editor
    • The P's are completed!

      Well, except for Pancake Mountain and the Price is Right's Episode Lists; I couldn't find entries for them.  The Infoboxes and IMDB links are up for those though.

      Another one is the Plastic Man Comedy/Adventure Show.  Infobox and IMDB links are there, but not the episode list.  I was able to find out that the show consisted of a bunch of cartoon segments consisting of Plastic Man, the Plastic Family, Baby Plas, Mighty Man and Yukk, Fangface and Fangpuss, and Rickety Rocket.  Apparently, these segments were all mixed up and allowed the different stations to pick and choose how to arrange the segments of varying lengths.  There are like 35 segments for Plastic Man but a bunch of other ones for the other characters.  I was left at a loss at how to arrange an episode listing for this cartoon series.

        Loading editor
    • Sounds like Plastic Man had a confusing format, and I don't know much about most of other characters. I would have no idea how to list them either.

      On a side note, I'm guessing your tired of the Power Rangers now.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah Plastic Man seems to be one of those "odd" shows.  But some of the older cartoon series also seem to have that sort of non-format where they could cut and paste, fitting it into a station's programming schedule without worrying about a specific sequence.  These days, cartoons tend to have a more complex progressing storyline over a season but back then, it was more like a self-contained story in one episode.  But it's not unheard of either. 

      They apparently did that with a bunch of shows; mixing 'n matching.  I remember I typed in something like a "Godzilla/Hong Kong Phooey Power Hour" or something like that where they apparently mashed the Godzilla series and the Hong Kong Phooey series together for a few seasons.  Why?  I dunno.  Neither of 'em seem to be very similiar except for maybe the production company were both done by Hanna-Barbara. 

      As for Power Rangers; it was a bit tiring but surprising to me as to just how MANY of these formulaic shows that Japan has cranked out involving color coded superheroes.  I'm guessing that the Japanese kids must LOVE this sort of thing since they keep coming out with more.  Of course, the American kids love 'em too considering how much they keep adapting them. 

      But getting back to the Plastic Man problem, we may have to think about some sort of modified arrangement for the TV show page  Say instead of an Episode Guide Section; we have a special note describing the weird format of the show with a list of the segments? 

      For that matter, should we think about some sort of modified arrangement for like TV Game Shows as well?

        Loading editor
    • If the TV broadcast is mixed up, then try to find if there is a DVD, VHS, or Blu-ray and go by their episode listing. If you can't find it, just ignore it or leave a note. For me, unless I really like a show, I make an attempt and add a note. If it's a obscure, old show that I have no interest, I'm just going to ignore it.

        Loading editor
    • Unfortunatley, Plastic Man seems to be one of those obscure old shows that no one really cares about.  There was a DVD release, but it just had the Plastic Man segments and simply didn't bother to include any of the other cartoon segments.  Not that I blame 'em. 

      But it certainly makes it difficult for us people who are trying to write up lists about these obscure shows and we can't find anything about them since no one else has cared to do so, even the production company.  Well, in this particular case, I think the company fell apart and is shut down so can't blame 'em either.

        Loading editor
    • I guess you could make a note about the show's format, and list whatever segments you can find. It's a shame the show has been pretty much abandoned. I've always kind of liked Plastic Man, but I haven't seen many of his old animated appearance.
