First I don't really care that these are out there. In fact the review on one has some really good info albeit I'm not sure it's a review.  I'm most interested in the accuracy of imdb and consistency.

Neither of these have any episodes and it would require taking episodes from other series to populate it.

Just curious what people think.

Both have links to the series that were included: on the Connections pages.
If accurate, that seems to be useful-ish information,

MikeTheWhistle,

Both titles are placeholder pages which exclude cast and crew information. That information is located on each series' IMDb page. (Columbo, McMillan & Wife, B.L. Stryker, etc.) Each title's Movie Connections page acknowledges the shows which aired under the network series title's umbrella.

NBC Mystery Movie Series: Movie Connections
ABC Mystery Movie: Movie Connections

I believe they should exist and not be removed.

Hi MikeTheWhistle -

As GMJ mentioned above, when titles are later released as part of a series (such as per the title examples you posted) we will list the series on the site and the film titles will be listed as episodes, however, these will be shell title pages and will only include select information, such as: Episode number, Release Date, Trivia mentioning the title is a rebroadcast, and a Movie Connection.

thx Michelle. Makes sense, but just seemed odd. First time I ran into something like this.  Are there other titles like this someone can point me to. I find it interesting.
I used to watch on Anglian TV channel Tales of the Unexpected in the 1970s and this particular episode starred Christopher lee, Simon Ward,Jane Seymour and i found it fascinating, the episode was called The Leather Funnel.
