The Jamie Foxx Show - Season 3 Episode 13 - Incorrect

Postby ak2766 » Sat Nov 14, 2015 7:43 pm

Hi there.

Just finished ripping my DVD set to my media player and noticed that Season 3 has 1 too many episodes. Episode 13 - Mr. Bo-Jingles doesn't exist in the DVD set making Season 3 a 20 Episode Season instead of 21 as listed on TheTVDB [0]. I'm not at all conversant with how to go about changing the database so if I need to do anything else, please let me know.

Wikipedia [1] and Amazon [2] have the correct episode listing so could be used as a point of reference for anyone (hopefully not me as I know next to nothing about TheTVDB) who will be making the changes.

Cheers,
ak.

You'll need to provide a valid source for further assistance.
It's entirely possible the original aired ordering has 21 episodes, but on DVD they only put in 20.
We can in this case update the DVD ordering leaving the possibly valid aired ordering along.
Please check the big red box above your thread for our rules and viable sources, which Wikipedia and Amazon are not.

Thanks.

Oops - just noticed that Wikipedia is not a valid source. So here is the IMDB listing:

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0115221/episodes?season=3&ref_=tt_eps_sn_3

@hikaricore

Apologies - was quick to the draw and did not see that Wikipedia was listed as an invalid source so I quickly added IMDB. However, there is no mention that Amazon is not a valid source - maybe an accidental omission?

Cheers,
ak.

Third party sites streaming or selling content aren't valid as just a matter of common sense.
You wouldn't, for example, consider Netflix a source for The Big Bang Theory or Family Guy would you?

I did some research (not conclusive) on The Jamie Foxx Show and here's what I found so far..

Bro-Jack aired on January 21, 1999 then Scareder than a Mug aired on February 4, 1999
There's a whole missing week where Mr. Bo-Jingles allegedly aired on January 28, 1999.

I'm looking around online for that time period to see if there way the episode was supposed to air, but some major even displaced it. So far coming up empty. It's not uncommon for networks like The WB (now The CW) to skip an episode, then later air it as part of another season. On some sites the episode in question appears as Season 4 Episode 2... but often with the January 28, 1999 date. Which makes no sense.

Example: http://www.tv.com/shows/the-jamie-foxx-show/episodes/
http://www.tv.com/shows/the-jamie-foxx- ... les-22011/

The Jamie Foxx Show Season 4 Episode 2
Mr. Bo-Jingles
Aired Wednesday 9:30 PM Jan 28, 1999 on The WB


As IMDB is an acceptable source and TV.com is a trusted source, I'll hold off on any changes for now.
We may actually have to see if we can find scans of TVGuide or other publications from this timeframe for confirmation.

Thanks for setting me on the straight and narrow. I had not clicked on the linked Sources page which has all the info required on what is / not a valid source.

In addition, I appreciate your thorough research.

Cheers,
ak.

If it's not listed, we do not consider it.
The omission is intentional - the only times we consider Amazon a valid source are for DVD Order, and Amazon's own series.
Hope this clarifies some. :)

EDIT: Dammit, Hikari, always when I'm editing... now my response is outdated... :lol:

Oi, how do I get to edit my posts - :shock:?

Also, just realized that my media player library has a blank title for S04E24. So it appears that S03E13 torn off and pushed down to the position of S04E02 which causes a disruption of several shows. Bummer, looks like quite a lot of shuffling to resolve the issue!

Cheers,
ak.

Posts can't be edited after a pre-set number of minutes. We had a few unfortunate problems with less civil individuals, who later edited their posts to feign ignorance of our responses. It's just something everyone has to live with now.

I know this was discussed before, however Season 3 Episode 13 - Mr. Bo-jingles is in fact supposed to be season 4 episode 2, and all the other episodes are supposed to just shuffle up one. The previous sources of IMDB and wikipedia are correct, additionally tv.com and tvguide.com also show it as being Season 4 episode 2.
