New episodes on American Experience, Season problems

Postby greybeard » Wed Oct 30, 2013 5:21 pm

This may also be impacted by a report of duplicate listings for Amex reporte on 10/04: Billy the Kid and Rockefellers are listed as the last two episodes in Season 25 even though they are already listed before that.

The main issue is that American Experience has announced and begun a new season on Oct. 29. PBS promotional material says that "War of the Worlds" kicks off the new season on October 29, to be followed by a 2-part, 4-hour program on "JFK" November 11 & 12. Does that mean they should be Season 25 following Silicon Valley? Or that they should be Season 26? If they are placed in Season 26 then Season 25 will have been only 5 episodes.

I just noticed a giant problem: the 3-part "The Abolitionists..." is listed twice with nothing else in between: as the last three episodes of Season 24 and as the 1st three episodes of Season 25, with repeated episode names and identical "1st aired" dates.

I checked wikipedia,, imdb and a bunch of others. generally agreed with thetvdb on recent shows that were not obviously bogus, but it has the current season as 24. ... des/191373 comes the closest and it puts "The Abolitionists" as the 1st 3 episodes of Season 25 and shows "War of the Worlds"

There are several problems with Season 25. This wiki seems to have a more accurate list of episodes. ... e_episodes
