The Movie Database Support

I'm currently compiling information to update this entry on a web series on go90 called Drive Share: https://www.themoviedb.org/tv/81236-drive-share?language=en-US

As for air dates of episodes, the only information source I have is IMDb, which, from what I've gathered, is an okay but not ideal source of information here on TMDb: "User-contributed data sources like IMDb, Wikipedia, TVDB and fan websites can be used if there is no official information available (anymore) or to double-check information found in secondary sources".

Link to IMDb Drive Share episodes: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6101992/episodes?ref_=tt_ov_epl.

As far as I can tell none of the official sites have available airing dates- but I will look into it further. Here is a link to the homepage- the original network where you can watch all the episodes (however I don't see any air dates): (EDIT: psych! turns out the network/website just got closed- like in the last few days hahahahah! now, I feel it's even more important to archive information on this series to maintain its "life")

Another source I have found is google itself- when you google "Drive Share Episode List", there is a list of all the episodes and their air dates- however, I have no idea if this is trustworthy (and I don't know where it gets this information from).

I feel more confident with the google air dates because 1) on IMDB ep. 23 clearly has a wrong air date that jumps back a month for no reason, 2) on IMDb there are consecutive episodes airing on the same day (this happens twice)- which although may be the case, I would assume is likely not- unlike in google where there is none, 3) on the production company website it says that the show premieres on the 30th of Jan 2017 (which is the air date that google gives- IMDb has ep.1 airing on the 27th of Jan): http://www.abominablepictures.com/new-page/.

Should I use the google airing dates? Or the IMDb ones? Why?

Do you mean like the episode on Google Play? Many articles also refer to a regular schedule: Monday to Friday for six consecutive weeks, but from my (limited) experience with go90 series it seems a bit unlikely. Their series usually have a somewhat erratic airing schedule.

I don't trust IMDb at all. Their data are user contributed, like us. So their edits are only as good as the contributors. They very often have wrong air date/episode names/episode order.

The real air dates might be difficult to find. But you might be able to find some of the air dates using the social media accounts. :thinking:

No I mean, when you google "Drive Share Episode List" you get this: https://imgur.com/a/aIO3FJC. Is this reliable- where do they get this info from?

And this pretty much matches (with the exception of 4 out of 30) the air dates on IMDb, and I was thinking that that was enough corroboration to accept those air dates. I'll have a look on social media accounts.

Just curious, am I wrong and that there was a way to see the air dates of episodes on go90 (before it was closed down)? A week ago when I was looking at this series at the go90 website the closest it had to air dates were vague things like "2 years ago".

Also, I'm sure this has been asked, and the answer is probably no, but I'm also putting information on TVDb, is there anyway to import episode information from TVDb to TMDb or vice versa? Pretty sure the answer is no (and I get why), but thought I'd make sure.

Not sure, I don't have them. :shrug_tone1:

I never had full access to the go90 website. But as far as I know you are right.

Well, it would be nice if someone could tell me if it's reliable or not, so far nothing's come out of looking at social media...

I found a tweet made by the twitter account of the Production Company- advertising an episode, "TODAY: New Drive Share", made on the 9th of February 2017, coinciding with an airdate for episode 9 (on both google and IMDb). The tweet actually names the episode name of episode 9 in the tweet "Drive Share Black". There were 4 other tweets from that account advertising episodes of the show, all of them occuring on dates that IMDB and google both corroborate are dates when episodes aired

Mmmm... after more research it seems that the show premiered on Serious.tv and not on go90? Even though on the official trailer online it says "A go90 Original Series".

https://static1.squarespace.com/static/59dbe13a6f4ca35190caf59d/t/59de6f89f14aa15967546d76/1507749770472/Drive+Share+-Series+Order+Announcement.pdf (I found that here: https://insurrectiontv.com/press-announcements/)

So, the air dates are probably sometime late 2016 right (and not in early 2017)? Since air dates are supposed to be for the original airdates on the original network (serious.tv)?

ADDITIONAL QUESTION: as far as I remember and in the one episode still available online that I found, there were no regular cast on-screen credits. The show is reffered to online multiple times as having been created and starring Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel, is this grounds to add them as regular cast? (Character set as "Varous")

if someone could tell me if it's reliable or not

That's the thing though. No source is 100% reliable.

it seems that the show premiered on Serious.tv and not on go90?

Maybe that was the original plan, but I think the series was release via go90. The trailer also says "watch only on go90" and Seriously TV only tweeted links to the go90 website.

@banana_girl said: That's the thing though. No source is 100% reliable.

MMm, sure, nothing in life is 100%, that doesn't stop me from avoiding getting in the way of moving vehicles. Is it a reliable source for TMDb?

I wouldn't use it if you can't confirm the air dates.

Just found this: https://decider.com/2017/01/27/paul-scheer-and-rob-huebels-new-uber-inspired-comedy-drive-share-is-a-five-star-delight/

"Premiering Monday, January 30, Drive Share will air new episodes Monday through Friday on go90.com and the go90 app (available for iOS or Android). "

This corroborates the google air dates exactly for all 30 episodes, kinda.. It was the schedule but it remains in question whether the airing of the episodes followed this.

Okay. Extra question I forgot to add, if I remember correctly I saw multiple times the show as being starred by Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel. However they did not have a specific character (they played various roles). Should i write under character "Various" for both actors?

Here's an example of a link that says they starred in the web series:https://decider.com/2017/01/27/paul-scheer-and-rob-huebels-new-uber-inspired-comedy-drive-share-is-a-five-star-delight/

(From the episodes I remember watching and checking, the credits never indicated to starring/regular cast members- only the cast members that appeared in that episode- and this pretty much changes episode to episode).

EDIT: AND there's definitely no way to mass import tv episode information from TVDb to TMDb or vice versa (TMDb to TVDb)?

Personally, I would add them with correct cast names on episode level. Various isn't really helpful.. so in this case, even though they might be main characters, I think it's more informative to add them on episode level. Same like adding directors/writers on episode level is preferred even if they directed the whole season. (Although that's more a pretty-ness thing I guess, not really an informative thing)

Do you mean, you would leave the character field blank for these actors in the regular cast and then proceed to add them as cast members on the episodic level (which I'm not sure can be done anymore with a credible source other than IMDb as the website the web series aired on has since been closed-and I did not make a record of it)?

Or do you mean you would remove them as regular cast (even though their referred to as "starring" in the web series?) and add them as cast members on the episodic level (which I'm..., etc.)?

I suggested adding "Various" because I believed I had seen at least one example of it on this db, and that it was added by someone who is a main contributer here. I think so anyway...

Or do you mean you would remove them as regular cast (even though their referred to as "starring" in the web series?) and add them as cast members on the episodic level (which I'm..., etc.)?

Yes, that indeed.

Is it possible to watch it like anywhere, that is not too official? :p

I just stumbled upon this, seems like they first tried it at FOX!

(P.S. I removed the English translated title you added for the series, as it's more a tagline)
