Hi, I have noticed that the seasons collection returned with a tv show using "" does not show the season overview?

At present if you want to make a single API call to return a tv show and all of its seasons complete with the season overview then it appears that you need to make separate calls to all the seasons as well?

Using append_to_response=seasons in the tvshow to try and return all the fields does not seem to change the results and the seasons collection is still missing the overview.

Is this by design or something that will be corrected in the future?

Hi there,

I would say that yes, this is by design. I'll have to take a look at this and see what I think. Right now no TV season translation information is queried at the TV series level.

I have an open ticket for this here.


Thanks for the quick reply, That is fine if it's by design, but I think it would be better if the seasons collection returned all the season information if queried with append_to_response?

That way API impact is less as a default but if the specific information is needed it can be collected with append_to_response in a single call rather than making multiple season calls which could be expensive for something with a lot of seasons.


The overviews are now part of the TV series season lists by the way. thumbsup_tone2
