The API does not return all the results that the website does.
For example if I search "desper" the website finds "desperate housewives" (among others) but the API does not find anything.
The query I used is

Code: Select all

Is it a bug from the API or is my query wrong?

Thanks in advance.

They use different methods for searching. This is going to be fixed in the new site.
