Some guide data--like that provided by Schedules Direct (which it seems 
you may have based on your e-mail)--includes an original airdate.  If 
yours does, you can set mythfrontend to sort by original airdate, then 
(allow Myth to record all episodes--including season 2) and just 
remember the name of the first episode from season 2 and watch any show 
that appears before it in the list.  Once you've recorded/watched the 
last episode of season 1, enjoy season 2.

In mythfrontend settings:

Sort Episodes
 - Record date
 - Original Air date
 - Program ID
Selects how to sort a shows episodes

Under TV Settings|Playback Settings on page 4 (or so), "View Recordings".
