    Currently, you can hide a show from you calendar or progress page. Hiding from watched progress also hides it from your dashboard on deck. Hiding in those 2 places should work for most users.

    This topic proposes a “dropped” status for a show. This would hide from the 3 sections mentioned above + add a “dropped” indicator in places such as the show summary page.

        Justin Nemeth,

        What about when you've skipped a few Seasons and have watched some of the later seasons. I still want to watch later episodes of the series, yet do not want to watch past ones. There should be a way of telling Trakt to ignore the previous seasons/episodes.

        For the more recent comments, please be aware you can hide show from your calendar and progress pages directly to hide them from showing up. When hiding from your watched progress, this will also hide them from your on deck section.

      • Joran commented  · 

        Yeah, this is really annoying. My 'On Deck to Watch' section is almost entirely shows which I only watched the pilot of and don't have any intention to continue.

      • Cristian Tane commented  · 

        Please, please, please implement this! My calendar is filled with a bunch of shows I only watched for a few episodes before giving up on. So annoying. Thanks!

      • TeaAndApathy commented  · 

        I forgot to add: the "Ignored" would also work for shows in which I pick and choose episodes to watch (such as How It's Made), i.e. a choice to Ignore episodes or whole seasons.

        This would certainly make trakt my #1 choice. The Other Place I use has a very easy to use interface, but refuses to implement this option.

      • TeaAndApathy commented  · 

        Would love something like this, especially when I start watching a show with a multitude of previous episodes that I *don't* want to watch (like Whose Line Is It Anyway). Mark as "Ignored" maybe?

        And, of course, a choice for shows that I started watching then stopped ("Abandoned").

      • Miki commented  · 

        ya, adding show option should be presented as: watching/completed/dropped/on-hold or hiatus

      • Jonathans7392 commented  · 

        As someone who watches a lot of tv shows and drop a few every now and then. A "dropped" button would be amazing to mark it as "dropped shows" which also hides it on the calendar automaticly since you don't follow the show anymore. Instead of having to do it manually.

        It'd save a lot of time and help organizing instead of having to make lists.

        plz add this! 3 votes for this idea!

        Most wanted feature. Don't care how you name it, just add it, as I have watched one episode of many shows which I decided not to watch, and I keep seeing them. It's used in other web app for series tracking. I was surprised not to see it here.

      • Hanyuu commented  · 

        3 votes for this.. though i would like the term "Dropped" instead of "Abandoned". I think that would be the same meaning but better imo.

      • ketjap commented  · 

        this would be great

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        PLEASE ADD THIS. I'm tired of seeing stupid shows that i only watched ONCE.

      • Josh Jones commented  · 

        Definitely pulling for "Abandoned." We stopped watching a bunch of shows after 2-3 episodes (our Trial period with Madam Secretary, etc.) and "abandoned" others (like Vampire Diaries after episode 4-12).

      • Moridin commented  · 

        This would be useful, though not just abandoned, "hiatus" would be nice too, I often use the watched + hide completed to see what I've missed. But I've decided to wait with season 3 of House of Cards until the easter holiday, and I've temporarily stopped Justified (though not abandoned). So some way to filter them out would be nice. Also, filter out shows that are finished (i.e. like Firefly) so I can see a list of all currently airing shows that I am following would be nice.

        I want mark Madam Secretary, but I don't want to erase it completly :)

      • dgw commented  · 

        If we can start shows, and finish them, there should also be an allowance for shows that we start and then decide not to finish. +3

        Existing plays for episodes of the show, of course, should remain in history and stats.

        i want hide option for shows in progress page...

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        Any way to remove a show from your watch list would be great. There are quite a few shows I no longer watch, and I cannot remove them. Even if I unmark all the watched episodes, it still shows up in my list. A remove or delete show would be a great option.
