Title: Blue Bloods Ch10 Numbering series and episodes
Post by: grampus on November 03, 2018, 11:13:05 AM
Just an improvement request

Can Blue Bloods have their series and episode numbers displayed in the description?
As you currently have with Spicks and Specks, Death in Paradise.


Cheers
Alan

Hi Alan -

Many thanks for your note.

Generally the series and ep number is in the episode name when we aren't given a name for the episode. As we are given ep names for Blue Bloods we don't include the numbering within the description as they are easily identifiable.

Kind regards,

Tiphanee

Hi Tiphanee,
Thanks for the response.
Its a pity, as there a number of series overlapping one another, it becomes a little difficult for folks, (well me anyway) to make sure I am watching the right series sequence.
Sometimes when they program 2 shows back to back,  they can be from 2 separate series.
Generally find I have chase IMDB to ensure I get it right.

Cheers
Alan

this is why one episode is marked as premiere & one is marked as a repeat, so yo know which one to watch :-)

Thanks, though it confuses my poor ole brain   
In the current Ice guide for next thursday one is noted as a repeat, but still doesnt help as far as which series it is.

Theres 2 next thursday, not 1. The 10pm a premiere of S09E03 & is the current series. the repeat is a repeat of S08E01. Google is a magical tool

I suppose what Grampus is saying is that if the ep numbers were shown, one wouldn't have to Google :-)

Thanks for the responses and interest.
IMDB is my tool of choice for this sort of exercise.
csutak40, you are correct i would prefer to not have chase it up.
But there is another part of this sort of issue that haven’t canvassed.
After having googled, IMDB’d to find the appropriate series I have edited the shows name field in the wiz with the thought that I would like to place each series in a separate directory.
Inevitably, the station has altered the start/end times, and then Ice will overlay my alterations.

But still, it’s not a biggie.   Just nice to have.
