This is sort of a "is there an easier/better way" kind of question. No 
error or problem, but I'd like to know how others handle it.

I'm fetching single elements of data from several tables, then piecing 
it together. Here's an example of one element I need to fetch:

$series = mysql_fetch_array(mysql_query("SELECT key2 FROM models WHERE 
lang='$lang' AND recordname='$model'",$db));

Now I realize that with this function $series will always be an array, 
even if it contains just one element (which it does). What I'd like to 
know is, can I write that statement so that $series is created just as a 
string? (So that I don't have to write "$series = $series[0];" 
immediately afterwards in order to treat $series as a $string.)
