Using Google For Air Dates (Drive Share)

Postby elebe11y » Wed Aug 08, 2018 8:30 pm

I already made a post about this in the "Members Helping Members" area but it's been more than a week and I think I should have posted it here in the first place.

go90 where the web series originally aired (and I think was the only place to watch the episodes) has been closed. However, I collected all the episode titles and descriptions. The titles differ with some of the ones that have been put here on tvdb.
Here are the titles for the first 10 episodes:
1) Backbiting Besties
2) Marriage Counselor
3) Garbage Mommy
4) Bad Dates
5) Cupid Cabbie
6) Dystopian Drive Share
7) The Longest Drive
8) The Light Source
9) Drive Share Black
10) Marry Me?

Here is the tvdb entry: https://www.thetvdb.com/series/drive-share/seasons/1.
Should I change the titles?

Next, the only source for episode air dates is IMDB and google.
IMDb: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6101992/ep ... =tt_ov_epl
Screenshots of googling "Drive Share Episode List": https://i.imgur.com/SbVuNMw.png, https://i.imgur.com/yzja4h4.png

As you can tell the air dates differ a little. I trust the google dates more, however I have no idea if I should (I dont know where it gets that information from). The reason why is because the premiere episode air date is backed up by other sources:

1) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OX5Cfm0xRsk
2) http://www.abominablepictures.com/new-page/
3) https://decider.com/2017/01/27/paul-sch ... r-delight/
Note: At the bottom of the article "Premiering Monday, January 30, Drive Share will air new episodes Monday through Friday on go90.com and the go90 app (available for iOS or Android)- this matches with all the air dates on Google.

Should I change the air dates, already being used?
Note: when the go90 website was still up, as far as I could tell, there was no way of knowing when the episodes aired (all it had was "2 years ago").

I think you have the right idea for this series, go ahead and make the changes. :)

Awesome, I will.

Just curious. Did you have an answer for where Google gets it's information from? (Check the screenshots I took of googling 'Drive Share Episode List').

I really don't, but for streaming exclusives, I usually prefer a best-guess date over nothing.

Okay. Extra question I forgot to add, if I remember correctly I saw multiple times the show as being starred by Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel. However they did not have a specific character (they played various roles). Should i write under role "Various" for both actors?

Here's an example of a link that says they starred in the web series:https://decider.com/2017/01/27/paul-scheer-and-rob-huebels-new-uber-inspired-comedy-drive-share-is-a-five-star-delight/

(From the episodes I remember watching and checking, the credits never indicated to starring/regular cast members- only the cast members that appeared in that episodes- and this pretty much changes episode to episode).

Yeah, if they're recurring actors but their roles change, Various should be okay.
