Alternate meaningsEdit

episodes are made up of rondo forms they are used in musical situwations. Some psychological disorders occur in episodes like for example paroxysmal anxiety disorder.

I think what the anonymous poster above is trying to say, is that "Episode" has meaning beyond the common use in media. In the given example, episode is used in a similar fashion, but I'm not sure if it requires disambiguation or simply another section on this page? --Romann 04:23, 2005 May 13 (UTC)

Agreed. Although all (or at least most) uses of the word trace back to its connotations of periodic activity, "episode" is used in different enough contexts (TV, or any other serial medium; psychology; and general periodic activity) that the "Episode" article should probably be a disambiguation page. Propose the current text be moved to "Episode (TV)" or similar. —Ryan McDaniel 03:32, 20 March 2006 (UTC)
An episode is one of a set of occurrences. Those occurrences could be TV shows, events in a book, epileptic attacks, a movie in a series ("Friday the Thirteenth Part Four" would be an episode), etc. etc. Applejuicefool 19:15, 14 September 2006 (UTC)
Heck, I'm thinking 'episode' could be as broad as "event". --Falos 18:09, 31 October 2006 (UTC)
I've added the disambiguation page. People can begin to put different versions of episode on the disam. page. 14:50, 25 October 2007 (UTC)

What a episode REALLY is!!!Edit

Episode is a tv program not a radio station!!!♦ —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:49, 14 September 2007 (UTC)


I think some books contain episodes too. But I could be wrong. (talk) 23:56, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

Yes. The episodes in a book are called chapters. However, chapters may consist of several episodes. Darkman101 (talk) 19:16, 20 June 2021 (UTC)


Why do have in my mind the idea that I have many times heard this pronounced as "ephisode" ? Darkman101 (talk) 19:18, 20 June 2021 (UTC)
