What i would like is to identify every episode and season, since it often
is different artwork for different seasons. But maybe that is not possible
with the data available in Sweden and i have to settle with one artwork for
all episodes/seasons.

But we'll see what the admins of thetvdb.org says about my suggestion.
Otherwise i will settle for one artwork.
