exactly which episode and season it is. And i couldn't understand why that
information is not valid to find what episode and season the recording is,
episode 11, season that started airing 2010. But what is logical to a human
isn't the same thing to a computer or that is not information that thetvdb
API supports.

Maybe i can get thetvdb to support that? =) Now it feels like describing a
color with the name is valid, but the RGB value of the color is not valid.

But now i know why this don't work, now i can investigate the other
problems i have with MML.

(Hmm, would it be completely wrong to add "Del 11 av 23 säsong 2010", as
the Swedish translation for the episode name? As it is now, there is no
Swedish translation for any episode. Maybe i could check with thetvdb
forum. Because then it would work, yes?)
