I'm finding myself creating (and replacing existing rules with) more
and more custom power rules to cover most/all eventualities with such
differences in the RT data - some showing of a series will have the
subtitle in the titles, others separately. Some series will have the
episode number in the subtitle, others will not, so basic
subtitle/description matching does not work.
