Just a quick reminder to all of you that we don't allow duplicates for ANY reason. There have been several series from the UK being aired on US networks recently and I've been purging a lot of erroneously added duplicates as a result. If the series is exactly the same (sans episode numbers) and is simply being broadcast on a new network in a different locale it does NOT get a new entry in our database. We list series by their original airing network via the country of origin and this will not be changing. By adding exact copies of these shows to the site you're only wasting our time and yours (mostly). Thanks.
