Add an option for each show to optionally pull series/episode data from TVMAZE.com instead of thetvdb. This would be very helpful for the many shows that have incomplete, incorrect or outdated information on thetvdb.

Because TVMAZE.com allows one to query a show using thetvdb ID, this should be relatively simple to implement.

TVMAZE.com api here: http://www.tvmaze.com/api

Example of how to check if show exists in TVMAZE using thetvdb ID: http://api.tvmaze.com/lookup/shows?thetvdb=81189

(Will return 404 if thetvdb to tvmaze mapping does not exist. Will 302 redirect to tvmaze entry if it does exist, returning information on the show, including tvmaze id.)

I too would love this. Hopefully this time we can download ufc and wwe like we were supposed to with tvrage integration.

WWE and UFC were really the only reason I moved to sickrage and has never worked. Not knocking SR though it is definatly better than sickbeard just give me my WWE and UFC! :D

Some python code links that might be useful in the future.

I feel like tvdb is becoming more and more a dictatorship. They set up the shows the way they see fit themselves instead of actually following the scene or even the showpages from the networks!

TVMaze seems to be a great alternative and I hope somebody can create an indexer for this..

I also would love for TVMaze to be added. TheTVDB's search is pretty awful - if you don't format the query exactly right it won't return the show you're looking for.
