I'm hooked with an American serialized family drama"Brothers and Sisters" at the moment and am watching "Season 1".
In an American drama, it is often the case to continue "Season 1", "Season2"... In Japanese, we say "シーズン 1" " 第一話” for this version. Can I say this " Season 1" ,"vol.1"? Actually we say" 第一シリーズ”for Japanese version.

I'm also wondering if what is the difference between "episode" and "season". Is it the difference between "the movie" and " TV drama"?
