  1. Edit watched status by date (in case of client glitch)

    A misbehaving client can quickly mark thousands of movies or episodes as marked, incorrectly. To undo this takes considerable manual time. Since an error like this occurs quickly at once, there should be an option to unwatch everything watched on a specific date. This would allow a quick and easy solution for a major issue.

    (In this case, I believe a dog sat on my keyboard. By hitting "W", it marked hundreds of movies as watched, wrongly.)

  2. Delete history from a specific date

    I recently had an error (probably a problem with an app) and during a single day, my episode play count for all my shows doubled/tripled! I know you can remove the watched statuses one by one, but as I now have thousands of watches in one day, that is just impossible! Also, removing the watched for the entire show is just as absurd! Is there a way to remove all of your plays/watches of a specific date (say Feb 20), so I won't have these extra watches messing up my record? If there isn't, is there a way to implement…

  3. Filter History by month

    It would be awesome if you could restore the functionality to filter the history page by month and get an overview of how many episodes and movies I watched during that month.

  4. [suggestion][bug] Adding New shows to watchlist as a "TV show" instad of "1st episode"

    Under calendar, when you go to "All / New Shows" and you click add to watchlist, only specific episode is added to watchlist.

    Suggestion: Add whole "TV show" to watch list instead of episode only.
    Else please change "All / New Shows" to "All / New Episodes". It is misleading.

    Bug: Also in current state under new TV shows, added series episodes do not show up under "My / TV Shows", i.e. on your calendar.

  6. Personal Top 10

    It will be cool if everyone had a custom Top 10 for both shows and movies and we will be able to choose which show/movie are in the Top and choose the order.

  8. Give lists a type, then use that in filter and search

    Lists would be a great way to find new shows to watch, but when searching for a show in lists, most of the results are of the 'shows I've watched/want to watch' type and therefore not helpful.

    If lists had a category attribute, (For instance: Best Of, Favorite, Watchlist, Watched, Personal, Recommendation) and that category could be used to filter search, then the results could, eventually, be much more helpful.

  9. Customizing Upcoming Schedule

    While the upcoming schedule is great, the fact that it includes shows on my watchlist makes certain days rather long. Perhaps we can have an option in the settings to display only a schedule that is the shows we've marked as watched.

  10. Search for show(s) in lists

    As a way to find new shows, and compatible users, it would be great to be able to search inside lists.

    The current list search seems to find list names, not content in the list.

    A couple of regular language examples:
    "Show me lists that have The Hidden Fortress"
    "Show me lists that include Star Wars and The Hidden Fortress"

    It would be great if the next chapter to check-in was shown on the serie's homepage.

  13. Show only Shows I have unwatched collected episodes of in Progress

    When looking at the progress page, I can see all the shows I have started, but have unwatched episodes for. If I look at my collection, it's all about finishing the collection.

    I'd like to filter/combine that together a bit more. I'd like to see a list of shows that I have in my collection, yet haven't finished watching. That is, ny show I have with unwatched episodes. Possibly with another option to only show the shows that I have a complete collection for (so I don't get stuck in the middle).

  14. Loving or Hating(Rating) a character

    Everyone has characters that they like or don't like. It would be nice if we could say "Like" or "don't like" so we can see which personage is loved or hated. Maybe add an option to tell why you love or hate them

  15. Link to Metacritic.com

    if it is possible can you add a link to Metacritic.com for Movies and TV Shows, like the links to wikipedia and IMDb. It would be good to see critic reviews and scores for Movies/TV Shows

  16. Better Favorite Sections

    Make the favorite show and movie sections independent of the user's show and movie ratings. Not every favorite is of a highly rated quality and not every high quality rated show or movie is a personal favorite.

  17. List view as an alternative to grid view

    Make a written list of movies and show people have watch in alphabetical order. Include in it the rating given by the user and comments they may wish to write about the movie or show. This will make for a more condensed and orderly way of viewing your movies and shows.

  18. Comments with progress timestamps (in e.g. XBMC)

    When you are watching something and you see a specific scene, it could be neat to have the ability to post a comment for that specific time in video.

    E.g.
    Comment: "Best quote ever! owned!"
    Stamp: Game.of.Thrones.S01E02.720p.HDTV(00h27m57s-00h29m07s)
