Air Crash investigations/Mayday seems to have season 8 unlocked, and it has some duplicates that are on season 9. A little cleanup seems to be in order.

Hello @all :)
Seconds From Disaster - Season 4 and Season 5 have some empty episodes that need deletion :D

National Geographic Trapped: http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=178171&lid=7 Show Naming is incorrect.

National Geoegraphic Trapped

There is an extra 'e' in Geographic, so when I scrape it the TV show name becomes misspelled. I believe only an admin can correct this if everyone agrees.

The show naming is actually not correct as we don't prepend the network to the series title. The problem is that there's already a series by the same name and year. So I'll let it stand (typo corrected) for now but will ask fellow mods and admins for advice.

The only similar case I can find is with the 2000 series "Click": http://www.thetvdb.com/?string=Click&ta ... ion=Search

There was already a series by that name in this year so a descriptor was added to the title.
Maybe on this rare occasion we do the same, or as an exception to the rule we call it "Trapped (National Geographic)"?

Please correct these 2 names here

http://thetvdb.com/?tab=episode&seriesi ... 5802&lid=7
should be named : Train Collision

http://thetvdb.com/?tab=episode&seriesi ... 5801&lid=7
should be names: Greek Ferry Disaster
overview:
An idyllic, Greek get-a-way to the island of Paros turns into a watery nightmare when a passenger ferry grinds against jagged rocks, gouging open the side of the ship. As the ferry sinks in the midst of a raging storm, frantic passengers battle for life jackets and emergency rafts on the under-equipped boat. As the death toll climbs, questions multiply. Hear survivors, rescuers, and investigators recount the events surrounding the worst Greek shipping disaster in 30-years.

The confusion with those episodes stems from the fact that they did a few spin-off episodes called "Crash Scene Investigation" (http://thetvdb.com/?tab=series&id=271788&lid=7). While it's listed as a separate series here, it is actually part of the Air Crash Investigation series (Mayday).

Mayday has one episode that is not a part of any particular season. There have been nine spin-off episodes of Mayday, including five Science of Disaster episodes (Seasons 6 and 8); three Crash Scene Investigation episodes investigating train and ship disasters (Season 3 episodes 2, 3 and 12); and Crash of the Century, a 90-minute special investigating the infamous Tenerife disaster.
