It's part of the old something system (like with character pages), and for some television series (perhaps ones with no user vote data associated therewith), it behaves strangely or seemingly so. For example, epdate (sorted by air date), eprate (sorted by user rating) and epvote (sorted by number of user votes) are all blank in the content "div" for a particular show. One would think that it would look more like how the epdate, eprate and epvote pages for another show (and perhaps most shows) present, but with the "Rated Episodes" listing paragraph either blank or omitted, but it does not work that way.
  • Is this discrepancy a glitch?
  • What, if any, are the plans for mitigating the discrepancy?
The nice thing about this "old" feature is that we can gather a list of titles of all episodes for all seasons, one episode per line, for a given show basically all on a single page and without extra bits like plot information.

The reason for inquiring about the potential future status of this interface is because it looks like it could be falling into disrepair, which would invariably be on account of "old" age of the parent/template interface.

The issues with these pages are known, thanks, and they will be addressed as we move the remaining parts of the old IMDb site onto the new platform over time.  As a matter of policy, we do not disclose specific details and timings in advance of launch, other than when such changes are exposed via A/B testing for selected focus groups or subsets of customers / contributors.

Thanks, Col Needham. I appreciate the candor, but I also feel like nobody should have to ask some kinds of things in the first place.
