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.
