Ratings: Show season ratings for TV series.

In general the rating system work good BUT imho the rating system for series could be improved offering the possibility to vote also for a season rating which could be shown (A) in the main page of a series WITH the "overall rating" or (B) in the main page of ratings, which could be easier (you can already rate the single episodes but that rating is not so visible since you can see it only on the episode page).Why do this? Example: a series like "The Sopranos" has a global rating of 9.2 and would easily get a rating for every season between 9 and 9.5; BUT a series like "Lost" could easily have a very high rating for the first two seasons (possibly over 9) and then the rating would start to fall significantly. (IMHO)I thnk this kind of information a little bit more detailed about the series could be helpful.

Its a good idea, although I'd prefer the season rating to be drawn from individual episode ones - of course you could have both: a rating for series, and a pooled series rating of all the episodes; then a rating for season and a pooled season rating from all that seasons episodes. Perhaps with links to breakdowns of votes.

Also suggested here, might be best to merge them if we can - it is better to give one suggestion one thread as it spreads out the +1s and so it might not get the attention from staff that it needs:

I agree that having the possibility to rank by season would be fantastic. As I read through the forum maybe it is better to rate by episodes or the show as a whole for statistical purposes, and if that is the case, I agree to go on using that system. However, why not having the rate by season only as a user information. I'd love to have the season rate displayed on the top once I click the season number. This way you can get a quick general idea whether the season you're about to start watching seems to be good or not. Thank you.

Was just playing with this thought and decided to bring this idea up when I noticed I am not the first one with this idea. I like it and I would definately use the feature/rating/graph if ever implemented in one way or another.
Cheers.

I wish we could sort the "Top Rated TV Shows" by number of seasons/ episodes. This would give the viewers an idea of the time-investment. If I want to binge on a show for a day, I will go with 10-hour-long episodes or 22-half-hour episodes. Any which way, it would be extremely helpful. What do you think?

It'd be nice if we could rate each season of TV show.

Would be nice if I could rate a season of a TV show rather than the entire show or individual episodes

Currently you can rate just a TV series as a whole or each episode of the series.
I find none of those particularly suited, when considering the diversity in style which comes from one season to another. Take for example True detective, which has now started it's second season, which has nothing to do with the first one that the public appreciated and loved. The current rating system forces you to give the series one rating even though there are really two different movie projects. 
The episode voting is not much helpful either, as people don't remember what each episode brought to the series, unless you vote a rating right after you've seen one, which i doubt that many of us do.

To put it in a nutshell, the current rating system for TV series works something like if you'd have to give The Godfather part I,II and III just a single rating. You just can't!

Exactly what the title says. Here's an example using "Parks and Recreation". I wanted to find out the highest rated season, so I averaged the ratings of each episode within each season. Why hasn't this been implemented yet?

Season 1: 7.38 (6 episodes)
Season 2: 8.23 (24 episodes)
Season 3: 8.58 (16 episodes)
Season 4: 8.40 (22 episodes)
Season 5: 8.31 (22 episodes)
Season 6: 8.22 (22 episodes)
Season 7: 8.62 (13 episodes)
