I would like to add episode runtimes to the wiki but I need help in where to place the info – The preceding unsigned comment was added by18.104.22.168 (talk).
In the background information section, not in the sidebar, and runtimes should note which home video release it comes from, be it VHS, DVD, or Blu-ray, because I'm betting there is a few seconds difference between them. - Archduk3 09:51, December 23, 2013 (UTC)
Isn't the runtime more or less fixed anyway, at least within a certain series or season? I think the formula has been "one hour, minus what we need as ad space" all along. :) -- Cid Highwind (talk) 11:03, December 23, 2013 (UTC)
It might be worth noting the runtime of each act (between commercial breaks), which I think would vary more per episode then the totals would. - Archduk3 11:09, December 23, 2013 (UTC)
Runtimes are "fixed" in terms of minutes, but the seconds vary. Take for example the TV show Lie to Me from a couple of years back with Tim Roth. The first four episodes from season 2 are all "43 minutes long", but range from 42:55 through to 43:25 (rounding to 5s). I'm not entirely convinced that having the times down to the second is really worthwhile, but YMMV. -- sulfur (talk) 11:38, December 23, 2013 (UTC)
