I'm not sure I get the intention of this category... if we had say, categories of "time travel sci-fi series " and "space-opera sci-fi series" I could understand what was happening, but in this one everything is lumped together. --TimPope 9 July 2005 09:00 (UTC)
Misuse of the word "franchise", when "series" is obviously meant. This seems to be a problem in several categories, and we've noticed the mistake growing with increasing frequency on the internet among those most reliant upon it to learn English. Wikipedia needs to not fall victim to a generation-specific misuse of a word. 22.214.171.124 01:55, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
To clarify by example Star Wars would be a franchise only if the rights to make Star Wars branded films was up for sale to anyone who paid the rights owners and follows franchise rules. McDonalds is a franchise not because there are many branches but because the rights are allocated in that way. --126.96.36.199 20:26, 28 June 2007 (UTC)
