:idea: TMDB / TVDB are machine-readable via an API, and so everyone and their mom (every software product at the very least) has long since switched to TMDB / TVDB.

:idea: IMDB is a legacy website, made for humans only, does not have an API, and ToS explicitly prohibit Robots and Screen Scraping. The only useful thing about IMDB nowadays is the tt1234567 ID pattern, and both TMDB / TVDB support lookup via IMDB ID so we don't actually need IMDB.

:?: Can you provide a specific movie / series where IMDB has more complete movie / episode information?
