The Leftovers rating

I like a lot iMDB but a friend of mine let me notice that The leftovers has a rating of 8.3, but checking the stats of the episodes of the three series most of the episodes seems to have a grade higher by far.

Why this big difference? 8.3 doesn't seem to reflect properly the show. What do you think?

Thanks in advance

A TV series rating is not the weighted average of the ratings of individual episodes. Instead, customers vote separately for the rating of the series as a whole via each title’s series page.
