Thanks Angela,

It seems like the easiest way to make this work and to support (date) 
format is to modify videometadata.cpp eatBraces and have it strip 
anything between ( ) unless it is (YEAR) and then leave it alone.  That 
should get passed on then to tmdb3.py which supports that format with 
the other patch.

Does that seem like a reasonable approach?
