Hi there,

This difference is intended between the two platforms. The desktop version of the Connections page will not display the poster image for each title:


whereas they are displayed on the IMDb app version of the same page:


However, we definitely appreciate this feedback! IMDb welcomes all feedback aimed at improving its features and usability across all platforms. I'll change this post to an "Idea" type, where the feedback can be seen by other IMDb staff and users for consideration for future updates.

Please let us know if we can offer any further help.

I'll have you know that when it comes to displaying movie connections on the IMDB App, shouldn't episodes be displaying the front image that's from the IMDB Page of it.

So you mean that the series image is being displayed instead of the episode image?





But it makes sense to me because the episode images are often not in poster format:

Thanks for taking the time to share this feedback!

We do currently display the series level image, as not all episodes have a specific image uploaded and people typically identify the series poster more easily than an image from the specific episode.

I am adjusting this topic to an Idea, so other users can weigh in with their opinion.

No, we have not made this change to the IMDb app in the last year.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Please do put the way Movie Connections get Displayed on the IMDB App back the wa....

*It's actually a nice thing to be getting a look at the front images given to episode pages, which was something you could do when displaying being displayed as movie connections on the IMDB App. For the love of getting a good look at these front images of episode pages rather then having the same image displayed from every episode of that show in a way to know what these episodes are about, it would be very much appreciated if the way for displaying stuff on the IMDB App was put back to the way it was.
