Improve API to support batch querying
My application frequently needs to update multiple movies and shows at once. At the moment, it queries the "updated" endpoint and is limited to issuing individual summary requests for items in the list that need to be updated in my app. It seems REST endpoints that support lists of ID's would improve performance on both ends.
For movies, I envision an API endpoint that will accept multiple movie ID's and return a list of JSON summaries for all of them.
For shows, the same thing, and it would be nice if there was an optional parameter like "all" that would return all show, season, and episode information in the same query.

Correct, we don't support those methods anymore due to caching and performance reasons. I would recommend joining the G+ community at https://plus.google.com/communities/103111515647012208243 for the most recent updates.

Those links 404. Is batching no longer supported?
