 The attached patch checks the response before parsing it, providing a much
 more sensible error message when network (or server) errors occur.

 Before the patch, the message is something like:

 File does not exist:  at ./tmdb.pl line 302

 After the patch:

 Unable to contact themoviedb.org while retrieving movie list, stopped at
 ./tmdb.pl line 328.

 (or similar).  I tested the patch with an /etc/hosts entry: api.themoviedb.org

 but haven't yet tested the patch with a real, live network/server issue.
 Still waiting for (another) one to occur.
