When speaking about non-mathematical groups of items (i.e. a series), is there a plural usage for the word series?
My favorite book series are all crime novels.
Is it correct to use series as a plural here?
The word series is one of those irregular nouns in English which is the same both singular and plural.
Moose and deer have the same issue.

A moose walked into a bar and the bartender said, “Why the long face?”. The moose said, “That’s a joke about a horse.” A moose is not to be joked with.
My favorite series is Ethel the Aardvark’s Adventures in Quantity Surveying.
My favorite series are always written by people who sniff glue.
