Why are you getting rid of the epdate, epvote and eprate pages attached to TV series?

Thanks for the feedback above.  The changes to the episode views are part of our technology update described on https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/upcoming-changes-to-several-imdb-features-du6man1opd5q0

The episode lists now include the rating, number of votes and the option to rate on either a season-by-season or year-by-year basis, for example: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4574334/episodes

Hello, 

    Thank you for your continued feedback. We are pleased to announce that we have just made a change to the Advanced Title Search results page to return much of the functionality lost when the epdate, eprate, and epvote pages went away.

This episode results page is now linked to from the 'See more episodes >>' link in the Top-Rated Episodes panel on the right hand side of the TV Series page. Below is an example for The Simpsons.



Best regards,
Chris.

Thank you, That works. Though I honestly don't see what was wrong with what we had before or why you changed it. Don't fix what ain't broke. There is plenty of work for you in fixing what IS broken without wasting time returning features you took away. That is very unproductive.

I know the older option of this feature was more simple, but to be honest I liked it more. At the moment, I can't see the number of season/episode and the number of votes. For example, if I only want to look at a particular season and see the ratings/number of votes there, that's impossible - it never says which season/episode it is (i.e. s05e05), so you have to count which is a real pain. Also, if you sort the episodes by number of votes, you can't actually see the number of votes. And finally, the pictures could sometimes contain spoilers which is bad if you haven't actually seen it. I hope this isn't the final version of this feature and you can keep working on it to make it better!

Well, I can't even find this link. Where is it, please? When I go to Simpsons, like in the example, it doesn't show that way to me. I don't find a link to Top Rated Episodes. It was so good before...

It's on the standard view of the series' title page.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096697/
If you use Reference View, you won't see it.

Here's the link itself, which you could edit for any series by changing the title id (tt0096697 for The Simpsons):
http://www.imdb.com/search/title/?series=tt0096697&view=simple&count=250&sort=user_ratin...

I tried finding a way to initiate a series= search within Advanced Title Search; didn't see it.
I _was_ able to tack on "&series=tt0096697" to a custom search. For instance, I entered 2016-09 and 2017-08 in the release dates boxes, and then tacked on the series parameter to get this:
http://www.imdb.com/search/title?release_date=2016-09-01,2017-08-31&sort=user_rating,asc&ser...
It would be nicer to have a "season=" parameter, especially if you could feed it a range of season numbers.

When are you putting the much better older function back like we were told would happen earlier on this thread?

We have added the functionality (and more) back. The old pages are not returning, sorry.

There is no MORE about it. It is most definitely LESS. Nothing wrong with the old system. No need to have changed it.

The results can now be viewed in two modes; they can be sorted by nine criteria; and the pages update many times each day rather than being frozen in time for 24-36 hours at a time (which is especially important for active shows). This also provides the future option of folding by-series searches into the complete advanced title search  at http://www.imdb.com/title/search for even more precise episode search options. 

Given the software driving the old pages expired in December 2017, there was a pressing need to change it, sorry, please see https://getsatisfaction.com/imdb/topics/upcoming-changes-to-several-imdb-features-du6man1opd5q0 for more context.

Would be great if one could at least see which season the episodes are from.
I don't think it would be hard to add that information.

The default mode is "Compact" but if you click the link "Detailed" in the upper right of the search results, there's much more information available.  This does not yet include season.episode but we will pass along the suggestion:

For example from http://www.imdb.com/search/title/?series=tt4574334&view=simple&count=250&sort=user_ratin...
View Mode: Compact | Detailed
