I'm an avid user of the GB Enthusiast app on my Shield, and noticed that it was returning a 404 on a decent number of videos, including almost all Mario Party Parties. Did some testing with the API directly and it seems that the Mario Party Party show endpoint only returns the Fuzion Frenzy Party. Was there some recent re-shuffling of the videos recently?

edit: To add to this, it seems that some videos (like part 1 of the Japan Nancy Drew game) don't show up through the search API, including the search bar on the site.

The video_show(s) endpoints are meant to only provide details about the show itself. To get the videos from the show, you'll need to use the videos endpoint filtered by the show id.

The 1st part of the Nancy Drew game does appear in the search. The title pattern is a bit different than part 2 & 3. It appears as "Nancy Drew: Shadow At Water's Edge (01/15/2020)".
