     imdb.pl is broken when it comes to episodic television. It's an
easy fix though. I've built my own scripts around my "fixed" version
of this script for tv. Although episode title searches on imdb can be
a bit dicey.

     Any pointers would be helpful in this area.

     My general procedure is to map the episode title to an inetref first
and then populate the rest of the metadata information (including posters)
once the inetref is sorted out. Once you've got a good inetref, the rest
really just falls into place.
