Terrific Trucks - Episodes Are a Bit of a Mess

Postby mrman2k7 » Tue Sep 05, 2017 12:22 pm

Hello, I hope this is the correct place to post this. The series is not locked, so it did not seem that "Series Change Requests" was the proper place. If this is the wrong place, can a mod please move this to the correct forum?

For the show Terrific Trucks (http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=314323&lid=7), most episodes are made up of two unrelated parts. As I understand it, splitting multi-part episodes into two separate episodes only applies specifically to cartoons. Terrific Trucks is not a cartoon, but a live-action show with minimal CGI elements, so each episode of two parts should be combined into a single episode on the site. This is similar to the show Odd Squad, which was recently changed form split episodes to combined episodes.

As listed in the database currently, the first 13 episodes of the show have been split into 26 separate episodes. Episode 27 is actually the Christmas Special, which is already included under Specials, so it should be removed from Season 1. Episodes 28 through 34 are listed correctly with both parts in a single episode, but will be in the wrong order if the previous episodes are fixed. The newest 6 episodes have not yet been added to the database.

How should this be approached? Should I try to clean this up myself, or is this better for a mod to take care of it? A mod should at least delete all episode images, as they will no longer match up to the correct episodes.

Sorry to include iTunes as sources below, but the official Sprout website does not have an episode list, and TV Guide does not seem to include the full list of episodes. No other databases I have found seem to have much information on this show.
