Is there a way to add every episode of a TV show to a list?

I want to create a list that basically consists of every episode (or most episodes) of a small handful of TV series. What I'd like is a way to add every episode of one show to a list all at once rather than have to add each episode one by one individually. Is there an actual way to do this?

Ideally I'd like it if you tried to add a series to a list a dialog box or something should pop up saying "Are you trying to add all individual episodes to this list?" giving us the option to add all episodes (perhaps a reminder that one can subtract episodes after adding all).

Just a thought. It'd really find this feature helpful.

Given that we can readily produce a list of episodes with this search feature:
https://www.imdb.com/search/title/?series=tt0944947&view=simple&count=250
found on many series' top page in the right column under the top-rated episodes:

it would be lovely if IMDb were to implement this suggestion:
https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/advanced_title_search_should_let_me_copy_the_whole_list_to_another_list

So far as I know, we have no way to mass-add anything to lists. You might want to vote for the idea above.

@Luke Maxwell,

You might try searching for a list someone else has compiled of the episodes you want.

To find such a list, I do this google search:
series title site:imdb.com/list

Then create a list in your account, and copy those titles to your new list. (Be nice and give the origin a mention in your description, preferably using a [link=...] to the source list.)

To verify the list is complete, you can do this search, where you replace tt0199214 with the id for your series, and ls041732382 with the id for your new list. (Be careful to preserve the %21, which is really !, and indicates "not".)
