In the current IceTV EPG for Canberra:

Fresh Blood: Fancy Boy is marked as a series, but it appears to have only a single episode in it.

Fresh Blood: The Record is marked as three standalone shows.

Fresh Blood: Ultimate Fanj is marked as three standalone shows, even though its subtitles are "Series 1, Episode N'. It's also marked up as from the UK. I don't know whether it is or not, but all the other Fresh Blood episodes are marked as from Australia.

Fresh Blood: The Axis Of Awesome is marked as a standalone show.

Fresh Blood: Written It Down is marked as a standalone show.

Can't they all be made part of the same series? And surely at least the one whose subtitles say it's a series should be marked as a series.

Hi there prl -

Many thanks for your note regarding Fresh Blood.

As these are ABC programs, we receive the data direct from ABC and try to remain consistent with how they label them.  It also helps down the track when trying to locate the program again in the ICE database.

With regards to Fancy Blood, ABC has marked it Series 1, Episode 1 so we assume there will be more.  The Record is marked as one series with three episodes.

Ultimate Fanj has now been corrected as from Australia, not the UK.

The Axis of Awesome already existed in our database but has now been turned into a series in our database.  Written it Down has also been turned into a series.

Cheers,

Tiphanee

Thanks, Tiphanee.

According to IMDb, season 1 of Fresh Blood (in IMDb as Fresh Blood Pilot Season) is:
Aunty Donna
Fancy Boy
The Record
Wham Bam Thank You Ma'am
BedHead

The ABC page for Fresh Blood says it has 5 episodes, but only shows 4 on the page (The Record is missing), but it looks like there's a broken widget underneath the episode panels that may have allowed you to see all 5 episodes.

Confusingly, while IMDb shows Fresh Blood/Fancy Boy as 2015, Celia Paquola's IMDb page shows her as being Celia in that show, but Sarah in another, 2014, show simply called Fancy Boy.

Written it Down (2013) has a standalone entry in IMDb that doesn't mention Fresh Blood.

Now I'm completely confused.

Fresh blood was originally a iview only show. It looks like it has now been released as a series on fta but also includes some other shows that were originally shown as one offs. The actors play various characters in each episode.
