*shrug* I don't know, but in DataDirect data the partnumber/parttotal is
only used for multipart episodes; not for the whole series of episodes.
I believe syndicatedepisodenumber is where you want to store the episode
of something like ST:TNG, Stargate SG-1, etc. The episode number
shouldn't really be in the title, subtitle or description, my guess
is who ever wrote that in the UK fixup just thought that was useful
info, and there was more room in the description.

If it is duplicate data just remove it.

Not sure what you mean.
