I haven't checked seasons 2 or 3 yet but the order I entered earlier matches nightgallery.net with the exception that we have the pilot at the beginning
So, wait, you entered updates earlier?
Because what I see on nightgallery.net does not match what I see for season 1 on TVDB.
Yes before I posted the message you replied to today I had modified the order for all the seasons based on the historical record I had. It should look like the included image. If it does not then you may need to clear your cache or the Amazon cache for your area may be out of date still.

NightGallery.net:

S01E01 - The Dead Man - The Housekeeper
S01E02 - Room with a View - Little Black Bag - The Nature of the Enemy
S01E03 - The House - Certain Shadows on the Wall
S01E04 - Make Me Laugh - Clean Kills and Other Trophies
S01E05 - Pamela's Voice - Lone Survivor - The Doll
S01E06 - They're Tearing Down Tim Riley's Bar - The Last Laurel

After splitting them, and adding the Pilot, you get:

S01E01 - The Cemetery
S01E02 - Eyes
S01E03 - The Escape Route
S01E04 - The Dead Man
S01E05 - The Housekeeper
S01E06 - Room with a View
S01E07 - Little Black Bag
S01E08 - The Nature of the Enemy
S01E09 - The House
S01E10 - Certain Shadows on the Wall
S01E11 - Make Me Laugh
S01E12 - Clean Kills and Other Trophies
S01E13 - Pamela's Voice
S01E14 - Lone Survivor
S01E15 - The Doll
S01E16 - They're Tearing Down Tim Riley's Bar
S01E17 - The Last Laurel


Compare that to TVDB:

S01E01 - Eyes
S01E02 - The Escape Route
S01E03 - Cemetery
S01E04 - The Dead Man
S01E05 - The Housekeeper
S01E06 - The Little Black Bag
S01E07 - The Nature of the Enemy
S01E08 - Room with a View
S01E09 - Certain Shadows on the Wall
S01E10 - The House
S01E11 - Clean Kills and Other Trophies
S01E12 - Make Me Laugh
S01E13 - The Doll
S01E14 - Pamela's Voice
S01E15 - Lone Survivor
S01E16 - They're Tearing Down Tim Riley's Bar
S01E17 - The Last Laurel


Did you even really look? I count 4 out of 17 episodes that correspond. Everything else is out of order.

S01E13 - Pamela's Voice
S01E14 - Lone Survivor
S01E15 - The Doll

Season 2 and Season 3 check out. Thank you so much for fixing this! Once those three episodes in season 1 are fixed, it'll finally be right!
Seriously, thank you so much.

I have made the single change and moved The Doll to 15 as that was a transcription error on my part. Again there may be a delay in seeing that change on the website and the API.

As an aside attitude like that will not endear you to the mods nor me. I understand you are frustrated but as the saying goes. "You can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar"

I know that, and I apologize for my tone. I think you understand where it's coming from though. The issue has been brushed off a few times already. It looked like the topic had traction today, and I didn't want to let the momentum die. I should've chosen my words more carefully, and refreshed one more time. Thank you, sincerely, for your effort.

Eh, that apology wasn't good enough. I'm embarrassed by what I wrote. You had no way of knowing how frustrated I was or wasn't, and I didn't take the time to read your post thoroughly enough to comprehend what you had said. That's 100% my bad. I'm sorry, and as an adult person, I should never be taking that tone with someone else, online or in person. It was condescending, and I regret it. For whatever that's worth. Won't be speaking like that to you, or anyone else, again.

We rarely get cool-headed apologies so it is very much appreciated. As I said I recognize the frustration, and we understand people are passionate about the shows they care about. Hell, it's why this site got started so very long ago. We do our best to keep up but we're mostly volunteers here and sometimes we get behind or don't have time to research every request.
We happily welcome new users and the resources you provided today were helpful to confirm the data we had. We fully understand that older shows are hard to find data for. So for future requests, if you have links like that include them in your request. They can only help to get faster action.
