The Movie Database Support

Hi, I am reviewing your api and I wanted to understand how your API handled search. Example could we set it up to search for movies and shows first by relevance and then by rating?

Please let me know and thank you!

Hi @cflangas,

The way search works is almost entirely by relevance, with a slight boost for more popular items. Search does not take rating into account.
