You might be surprised how many you've missed even if you thought you werekeeping track.
With "Seen" you can blast through the lists in seconds.

For any list, It's easy to mark how many you've seen - simply replace the word"list" in the URL with "seen"

A natural extension would be to an "add to WatchList" button, this the user can hide films he/she has seen. Unseen filmsassociated with favorite actor or director are potential additions to one'swatch list.

The appears to be a minor bug. Shouldn't

IMDb Seen: Mike Nichols as themselves
83 titles

be a subset of

IMDb Seen: Mike Nichols

Another update:

Note: we launched Seen on the Top 250/Bottom 100 Charts pages today.

Per bderoes, Champion:
I'd suggest you include a line about being able to create a Seen list of episodes of a TV series thusly:
https://www.imdb.com/seen/tt0096560/

However, in the past, when an episode doesn't have the season & episode numbers assigned, it doesn't appear on the Seen list. Scan this thread for discussion; the upshot is that assigning the sn#.ep# fixed the problem.
