To me, a continuation is if it continues from the season before it. "All in the Family" evolved into "Archie Bunker's Place." They are the same show, but the focus changed. "The Andy Griffith Show" evolved into "Mayberry R.F.D." They are the same show, but without Andy Griffith. It continued the lives of the citizens of Mayberry, even having Andy Taylor show up for a few early episodes.

There's obviously a very fine line between calling it a Continuation or a Spin-Off. In the case of All in the Family, I wouldn't feel like having the complete series on DVD unless I had all 13 seasons (AITF/ABP). The same goes for The Andy Griffith Show. I don't feel like it's complete without "Mayberry R.F.D." And to an extent, mostly because the finale of "Three's Company" made a big deal about the new season, I don't feel my TC collection is complete without "Three's a Crowd." Yet, I feel like I have the complete "Friends" collection without having "Joey" on DVD. To me, it's that. Whether I feel a show is complete without it's "Spin-Off" or "Continuation" series. And in the end, it doesn't matter what we call it. But I admit, this debate is fun.

Also, what about "Saved by the Bell" and "Saved by the Bell: The College Years". Spin-Off or Continuation? And what about "The New Class"? It's the very next season after Zack and the gang graduate. It follows Bayside high and Mr. Belding, so is it a spin-off or continuation?

Nice Post!

One series I count as a spinoff and not a continuation is the New Leave it to Beaver. It has the same characters, but follows a movie and was made 20 years after the series ended. Archies Bunkers Place was made after a summer hiatus. Just a new season of the show.

Another one because of time is Get Smart 95. It was made 25 years after the series ended. Again same charcters (Max and 99) but there was a huge break between the series.
