The Made-for-Television Movies

Of course, the line gets damn blurry sometimes.

Is a two-hour Rockford Files episode a TV movie?
Should Banacek be listed as a series or a series of TV movies?
Was The Dain Curse a mini-series or a multi-part TV movie?
Does a two-hour pilot get listed as a TV movie only if it fails?
And what about all those straight-to-cable, straight-to-video or (now) straight-to-streaming flicks?

The way I’m figuring it is: 

If it’s one-off, not part of a series,  or if it’s tied to no more than two other movies;
or if it’s a pilot, successful or otherwise, and

If it was made for television — be it broadcast, streaming or whatever–
Then it’s (probably) a made-for-telvision movie.

Meanwhile, if you’re not too clear on the concept of who is or isn’t a private eye,
check out What the hell is a private eye, anyway?
