Topic: Comments about rating systems

I would like to give my 2 cents worth about ratings and especially about series since you might like one season but not the next. I would propose a number where each digit starting with the leftmost applies to the season. Example: If a series has had 5 series and the 1st one you loved but it has been going to pot since then it would be 12345. This means that you loved the 1st season but it has been going downhill since then.

That's an extremely pertinent issue regarding rating systems...the Seasons quality variations with only a single rating allowed.
For example, I've often seen on IMDB where a show has received a 1/10 accompanied with a review. The review might read something like, "This show was awesome for the first 5 seasons and the writing was so intelligent. But Season 6 and 7 have gone down hill terribly and I just cannot watch anymore. I don't know what happened to the writing, but they screwed up."
So, the entire Series gets a 1/10, yet it was a fantastic, high quality show for 5 years ! Are you serious ? You can't give it the worst possible rating because the show went in a different direction the last 2 years. What about Seasons 1-5 when you thought it was the best thing since sliced bread ? Gotta be a way to give a fairer rating or delineate Seasons.
Yes ???

Re: Comments about rating systems

I agree, but I also don't really see people rating individual seasons (at least not in volume where it would be as useful as current rating is) ...
