I'm using API v2 (series/id/episodes) to retrieve the complete list of episodes, and there is a show (Sense8) in which the API returns some episodes that have a Season ID but no season number.

One of them:

Code: Select all

 {
      "absoluteNumber": null,
      "airedEpisodeNumber": 5,
      "airedSeason": null,
      "airedSeasonID": 723065,
      "dvdEpisodeNumber": null,
      "dvdSeason": null,
      "episodeName": null,
      "firstAired": "2019-03-08",
      "id": 6233039,
      "language": {
        "episodeName": "",
        "overview": ""
      },
      "lastUpdated": 1501588165,
      "overview": null
    },
Is this correct behaviour? There can be episodes with no season number?
Plus, the weird thing is that the public website does not list these episodes.

I wondered if we'd caught all those.
No, those are improperly removed Specials, and they can be viewed under Absolute Order on the All Seasons listing.
I took care of those.

Thanks. So, in general, if I encounter other episodes that have no "airedSeason" value, I should ignore them?

From a programmatic standpoint, yes, but we'd appreciate knowing about them so we can fix them. They tend to crop up in older, locked series though, so they should be relatively rare.
