Yeah, it's been discussed before and when I was reminded of
it the other day I decided to take a look. The way you laid
things out made it very simple so I decided to go ahead and
do it.

I'm not comfortable with the phrasing either. The episode
button currently describes why you would want to use it rather
than what it does. Also, there may be other reasons for not
wanting to record an episode other than having already seen
the it.

I changed it to "Never record this episode". "Never record it"
isn't quite right because on this page "it" is a pronoun for
"this showing". I guess I had changed the old button so that
"showing" vs. "episode" would be less ambiguous than "it" vs.
"episode". Looking at it now, I agree that "Don't record it"
looks better.

I also added a check so that the episode button is only
included if both the subtitle and description are not null.
There's no point to having the button if it can't be matched
as a duplicate =). This can be updated when more duplicate
policies are added.
