I'm using something to automate grabbing new episodes in certain series when they're released, but BB seems to be completely absent from that call...

I noticed that depending on how you grab files by way of intercepting or downloading from the source they can be named differently.

Thanks, I'd certainly appreciate a sanity check.

I'm using this: https://www.giantbomb.com/api/video_shows/?api_key=*****&format=json

Definitely can't see BB in there. Also noticed that if you click on the BB link on the site, the latest episode doesn't appear in there either... https://www.giantbomb.com/videos/breaking-brad/

@simonk83: Breaking Brad doesn't appear to be set up as a show, merely a category. If you use the https://www.giantbomb.com/api/video_categories/?api_key=...&format=json call, you'll see it listed there.

You'll also note that the site links to

https://www.giantbomb.com/videos/breaking-brad/

not

Interesting, thanks, I wonder why that is? Never mind, I'll work around it, thanks for that :)
