I'm glad you asked that, I was thinking of asking something different
but related ...

That's something to look forward to.
In my case, I've been thinking of editing the descriptions to add
series/episode information. I've noticed that hardly any programs
include episode numbers, and even fewer give the series number (in
fact I can't think of a single program I watch where the series
number is included). Just having a long list with a description of
what happens isn't much use unless you know what was in each episode
of which series - in which case, not much fun watching it again IME.

Christmas stocking fillers. Some available as e-books.
