Since the Discovery Channel has released its official numbering of S13 episodes https://www.discovery.com/tv-shows/deadliest-catch/ will the episodes by renumbered to match? http://thetvdb.com/?tab=season&seriesid ... nid=704769

The following 3 episodes, the Discovery Channel has actual episode #s instead of listing them as "Specials"
S13E02 - Evolution of Danger
S13E10 - Legend of Wild Bill
S13E15 - A Hillstrand 4th of July

This has caused all the current episode listings on thetvdb to be off by 3 once you get toS13E18 Lost At Sea (which Discovery has marked as S13E21).

Is there an official stance on whether it needs to be changed or not :?:

I sat down yesterday to watch the latest episode and noticed it was a duplicate. I looked into it and realized it is because of the numbering scheme. For the latest release, the scene is using the numbering from Discovery which is why it doesn't match the episode listed here. From the NFO:

Following official site for naming https://www.discovery.com/tv-shows/deadliest-catch/ rule 17.15.1.1 but feel free to nuke for mislable again cause what are the rules for anyway :) Tvmaze decided to pick and choose episodes they wanted to label as specials and never matched the official site.

I think we should re-number them to match Discovery.com. Generally, TVDB follows whatever "official" page is out there. Some networks will re-number stuff at times, so the episodes can shift, and some are worse than others, but this has been like this for a while, so I think we can say the discovery.com numbering is correct.

I'm happy to renumber if no one else does, but just want to confirm it's the right way to go.

@hoffy97 As you said I think its the right way to go as its the Official list, Feel free to sort it if you wish, if the Mods have a issue then really it would have been helpful for them to chime in :P lol

Just renumbered. I added E23 as well, which aired last night. Now matches discovery.com

And here we go, someone re-numbered them back to the original, wrong numbering, as well as zero'ing out some of the episodes they thought were redundant, after adding the specials themselves. I was able to restore them, but we may need to look at locking this soon. In the mean time, it left us with several blank/zero episodes. Can some admin clear them? They are:

This shit is really getting annoying. My sonarr went nuts and downloaded a bunch of crap I'm assuming due to the rename. I'm going to pause this show until this is sorted out. Is this season over? If so I don't have to worry about it anyway.

this really should have been left how it was for the duration of the ENTIRE season because yes regardless of what discovery said they were actually specials... boy cant wait for this issue to happen again with gold rush like it does every year...

edit: and yes what was originally ep 19 was the finale
