Topic: TV Shows Specials Magically Appearing

Why am I getting a sudden flood of tv show specials appearing under the Episodes tab? Like randomly shows specials are appearing now from much older series and its getting annoying. Now I don't know if I'm missing any actual episodes from that show.

You're not missing actual episodes.

I had to migrate the way we get data from thetvdb.com (to their new API v2, instead of the old one which was pretty much useless for some of the series now) and apparently it shows more data (in specials) than the old API.

As far as I can see (and had been reported by users) - this happened only with specials and once you mark those off (as watched) - they won't be coming back.

Thanks for pointing that out. A somewhat recent change broke the specials being hidden as a number from the search engines.

Fixed now!

This has happened regularly for years. Specials pop in from time to time, and you just have to mark them all as watched to get rid of them. It's no big deal smile
