DC Super Hero Girls (2019) Specials Clean Up

Postby Cryanger » Mon May 13, 2019 9:59 am

I'm bringing this up because it involves deleting a number of episodes, and I though it best to bring it up for discussion when advocating the elimination of someone else's hard work.

DC Super Hero Girls (2019) Specials is essentially a list of every video posted on the YouTube DC Super Hero Girls page, minus "Trailers" for upcoming videos: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRdVJ9XqHCb6BqApCIO_TYg/videos

Compare that to Justice League Action's Specials (https://www.thetvdb.com/series/justice- ... /seasons/0), which are also mostly from the DC Kids YouTube page: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyu8StPfZWapR6rfW_JgqcA/search?query=Justice+League+Action

DC Super Hero Girls (2019) seems to be listing every single video posted as a "new" episode, despite how some of them are just a conglomeration of clips. Compare that to Justice League Action, where in there are still ongoing clip videos being posted, but these are not included as new Specials.

I suggest that the only YouTube videos for DC Super Hero Girls (2019) that should be considered actual episodes are any that begins with a hastag (#), the Get to Know (they have in-character voice over), and the Official Trailer for the series. The hashtag episodes are actually new content, while the Get to Know episodes and the Official Trailer were hype videos to drum up interest in the (as of then) unreleased series. That means every other Special episode, starting with #17, should be deleted as there is nothing new about them. That's 9 episodes of just clips.

This would bring the show into cohesion with Justice League Action (as well as Teen Titans Go! and Batman: The Brave and the Bold), which doesn't list their clip videos as actual Special episodes. Either that, or the clip videos need to be added to Justice League Action's Specials, which would be the more difficult and work intensive decision.
