https://thetvdb.com/api/{API_KEY}/serie ... all/en.xml

Returns an empty xml.. no show info, no series info.. The show exists (Prodigal son)

http://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=352883

Ive tried 3 or 4 others and they return info so im guessing the show cache is messed up?
I speak bluntly, if that hurts your feelings you should re-evaluate things. :arrow: It is an acquired taste.

I have noticed the same thing, so far shows are returning empty querys.
As series examples: 295759, 269653, 295648, 253478, 348200, 164541

API has been broken/down for at least six hours (it is for me as well). There are other threads mentioning this.

Something is clearly wrong on the back end as it seems to affect operations attempted from the website as well, including people seeing "Whoops, something went wrong" errors when trying to update information. Earlier in a browser there were 504 errors even just trying to load show pages read only to simply view them (this does not seem to happen right now).

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=61700&p=168227
viewtopic.php?f=122&t=61651&p=168228

This seems pretty fishy and possibly related as well:

viewtopic.php?f=17&t=61702&p=168235

Maybe someone should make a single sticky thread to collect this all in one place.
