[Tv shows] Organize / Group TV shows
Maybe there's a way to already do this, but I've not found it. I can rename movies and organize alphabettically the way I want to. However for TV shows I can't. The upper name that they display by is not adjustable. I will give 2 examples off hand:
a) Scooby Doo.
I have several seasons of different Scooby Doo Shows. For instance let's just use 2 as an example: one is "What's New Scooby Doo" and another is "Scooby-Doo Mystery Inc". I would like these to display next to each other. If there was a way to adjust the top name that they display by it would be good. In some systems I like to give a prefix to the name such as Scooby 01: Scooby-Doo Mystery Inc. and Scooby 05: What's New Schooby-Doo. This way they will display both together AND in the order I want them to.
b) DC Shows such as Arrow, Flash, Pennyworth, Swamp Thing, etc. All Display Alphabetically. I would like them grouped together and in certain orders (which may not be Alphabetically such as:
DC TV 01: Flash
DC TV 02: Arrow
DC TV 03: etc...
Please let me know if there is a mechanism for this, or if not, this would be incredibly helpful to add some sort of mechanism to do this.
to be able to add them manually, or by using .nfo files if the scrapers don't do the job correctly would help greatly
I think the best way to address this would be to have a landing page for each TV show. So when you click on a show, instead of just getting season posters you get a brief summary of the show and details about it that you can modify just like a movie page when you go into it. That way you should have Edit ability to modify the description of the show, change the title etc.
As long as the display name doesn't mess with the actual DB name so that future episodes/seasons added land in the right spot, this would be cool.
I'm not even sure Kodi does this as I haven't used it much, but it would be a nice way to manage TV shows.

Most of my stuff that can’t be found on data base ends up in movies
so there’s a mix of different stuff in the movies section,I made groups
Of video clips and shows ,but find I can’t combine stuff in groups with stuff in the tv section. I would like a feature in the Tv section that would bring up my groups
If TV series were put into modules as movies are it would make searching the whole of my very large TV series section, for a particular series that is required much easier.
