Firefly (FOX 2002) is in need of repair, although massive may not be the correct term. The season is locked and I have been researching several sites that show the series in TBDB incorrectly ordered. At first I thought this was just a dispute over airing dates but in further research it seems as though the current TVDB is incorrect. The following sites can be used to reorganize:

Will someone please either unlock for correction or correct the database?

The show is listed the way it actually aired and the dates are correct.
The DVD order is set to follow the intended order you're probably looking for:

Re: Shows in need of massive repair: Red Rock

Re: Red Rock episode dates.

Reference: http://www.tv3.ie/shows/redrock

The episode dates for Red Rock appear to be incorrect. I believe the problem is that at least some of the dates are from the BBC rebroadcast of the show and some of the dates are from the Irish broadcast of the show. Since the show is created in Ireland and all initial broadcasts are on Ireland TV3, I believe that those dates should be used.

I have an archive downloaded from the Irish broadcast of Seasons 1 and 2.
My records show 44 episodes in season 1 and 78 episodes in season 2.

S01e01 was broadcast on January 7, 2015. S01e44 was broadcast on June 4, 2015. (Confirmed on http://www.tv3.ie/3player/show/703/0/0/)

S02e01 was broadcast on September 2, 2015,
S02e02 was broadcast on September 3, 2015,
(this continued weekly on Wednesdays and Thursdays).
The last two episodes I have are s02e77 (May 25, 2016) and s02e78 (May 26, 2016)
On page https://thetvdb.com/?tab=seasonall&id=289816&lid=7
s02e42 is shown as May 26, 2016, but was broadcast on January 21, 2016.
The next episode s02e43 (broadcast January 27, 2016) is listed as broadcast September 12, 2016. This episode and those that follow are listed with the dates for season 3 episodes.

Season 3 is being broadcast on Mondays at 21:30 Ireland time, beginning with September 12, 2016.

Seasons 1 and 2 are 30-minute episodes (about 22 minutes of show time). Season 3 has changed to a 60-minute format.

Taggart is quite a mess. Alas I have to confess to making it somewhat of a mess. That said, I meant well and would like to continue trying to get it in sync with what appears to be a very succinct and complete wikipedia listing.


Unfortunately I don't have access to repair this by removing certain entries. Is it possible to get per-series or editor access so I can clean this up?

Critical Role: http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=296861&lid=7 is abit of a mess right now. After doing some research, I've discovered this: https://www.reddit.com/r/criticalrole/wiki/hub/episodes.

Unfortunately there is a season lock on season 1, and it appears that we are 5 seasons into a show that TheTVDB is only showing 2 seasons for. I'm not sure what the process is to remove the season lock, and what happens after this request is made, but I'm willing to put in at least some time towards correcting this issue. Would it be ok to just add the seasons and re-create everything listed in season 2? Then re-do all of season 2? Or should I wait until Season 1 has been unlocked so that season 2 can reflect everything properly as well?

I would like to second Critical Role: http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=296861&lid=7

This show is a bit odd, since there are no seasons, but there are story arcs, which are as close to seasons as we get. To add to Pyrometheous's research. Here is the wikia that is as close to official as we get. http://criticalrole.wikia.com/wiki/List_of_episodes Shows the different arcs as chapters.

Aren't Geek & Sundry dividing it into actual seasons, though?
This seems like a perfect time to implement DVD Order options.
It's within our capabilities to accommodate both orders.

@DarklightIndigo Why do DVD order as opposed to aired seasons? I mean, either way, I'd like to see it reflect the arcs properly. Since it isn't an actual TV series, and that it has 4+ hour episodes, I think that 35+ episodes per season is a lot.

EDIT: I just went to DVD order and it is super messed up...starts at Episode 18. can the season lock be romoved?

I'm okay with this.
My primary concern is that Geek & Sundry has an established season list, and that should be respected before arc notation, the latter of which can be accommodated in DVD Order.

Does Geek & Sundry have an established season listing?
Is it different from the story arcs?

That's a good point, and to be honest, I'm not sure if Geek and Sundry has. I can look into it. I think Mathew Mercer was involved in the arc list, but that's more hearsay than fact. I'll see what I can find out and post again when I find out.
