The Movie Database Support

Hi. I have been playing with the API for a while and I found that, a valid movie doesn't return status_code, while an invalid movie does.

According to the docs, every response has its code including success. But the is no status code on a valid movie which it should with the code 1.

Am I missing something here? Can I just check if status_code exists or not to validate a response? Because I believe only problematic responses will have the status_code but not a valid and successfull API request.

Hi @psycholyzern,

It's true, status_code is only returned on select responses. You're the first person to bring this up, which is interesting. I've created a new ticket for this here.

Thanks for the report.
