Yeah, me too. Sorry but I think that approach is just wrong. There are so many TV classics that were one-off or limited-run events, from Roots to Cathy Come Home, The War Game or Quatermass & The Pit.
I would agree with leaving out those three as they are TV films as opposed to TV shows, although in the case of "Cathy Come Home" I guess you could include The Wednesday Play in the list.
