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: Shin Chan

Postby 2l8 » Fri May 05, 2017 6:59 am

Hey, since it is stated in the first post of this thread, Crayon Shin Chan is a mess (this includes all duplicates and languages as far as I know). Since that was roughly 7 years ago, I have to ask: Is there a way to fix this series? If not, what problems have to be resolved to get it fixed? What information are needed? Would love to sort this out, because right now, the best solution is to have all episodes in one folder and not to care about seasons, episode names etc. (in my case in Plex) and that's a pity. I understand there are differences in airing between JP US and Europe, but there has to be a way to sort this out?

For example:

In Season 1 (german, series id 82694) the first 75 episode are in kind of right order, but after that spanish(?) episodenames were added after the german ones in the same season, plus there are blank episodes. Season 2 consists mostly episodes of S1 and there are duplicated episodes all in Season 2. After that I completely lost track of what episode belongs to which season, which episodes are duplicated and that goes on and on and on. Not to say the empty seasons 11 to 23.

To sort it out in general, I used this order https://www.fernsehserien.de/shin-chan/episodenguide for german language, but couldn't find viable guides for US and/or JP.

Is there hope, we can get this fixed? Maybe a complete reboot of the series would be a viable way to get rid of this mess.

I have a similar question for Shin Chan--I'd be happy to get the US (Funimation episodes) corrected as a different series:

https://forums.thetvdb.com/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=16865&p=116613&hilit=shin+chan#p116613

"Hi, I looked through all the threads and it doesn't seem like anything has been done on this? If I were to create a new show "Shin Chan [Funimation] (2006)", would that be allowed or would it be deleted?

Again, as the previous poster has noted, the Funimation version is completely different than the original Japanese episodes--they completely changed the dialog/scripts."

Thinking about taking a swing at "Mysteries at the Museum": https://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=seasonall&id=252290&lid=7

Travel Channel just made available their official episode line up: http://www.travelchannel.com/content/travel-com/en/shows/m/mysteries-at-the-museum/episodes/200-series.html

Would be nice to have some of these titled correctly. :D

I actually just got here by google searching this show. I have 4 specials that aren't anywhere on the list. There are also a specials that are doubled as extra episodes of various seasons.

Out of curiosity, how does one go about submitting corrections to shows. I have a massive library and have come across various errors over the years but was unsure of how to help.

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.


True. I will rework it out though. Since the campaign is over, they annonced that they themselves divided it in 5 arcs

For WWE Royal Rumble, there's a season 1 (https://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=season&seriesid=323400&seasonid=714427&lid=7) with one blank episode listed, and then the actual events are listed under season 30 (https://www.thetvdb.com/?tab=season&seriesid=323400&seasonid=698252&lid=7).

Is it possible to move the real events to season 1, and delete season 30? Or delete season 1 and re-name season 30 as season 1? The listing in the current season 30 folder is complete, it just doesn't make sense to have that empty season, or to have only one season that is listed as #30.
