tv show search

Many times a search for a Gunsmoke episode yields nothing.  But a Google search reveals an IMdb result.   Why doesn't the IMdb search produce the episode?

Bacatselos: I'm not able to replicate this problem. Which episodes have you found nothing for on an IMDb search?

And, to be clear, were you trying an "All" search or a "TV Episodes" search? You are likely to have more success finding an episode with a "TV Episodes" search.

Almost every episode.  Recently, The Warden & Scott Free.  I didn't know there was a TV Episode option.  I will look for it.  Thanks.

@bacatselos​ You’ll find the “TV Episodes” option in the menu to left of the search box at the top of every IMDb page:

or you can do a search, for example, for “Scot Free” and then click the “TV Episode” option over on the right under “More results”

to reach -> https://www.imdb.com/find/?q=scot%20free&s=tt&ttype=ep&ref_=fn_ep

Hope this helps.

   This site drives me crazy.   I searched "TV episodes" for a Gunsmoke episode titled Homecoming.    Nothing.    Add that to the fact that it wouldn't accept either my username [email?] or password.  It should not be this difficult.

You already got an answer to this question:

https://community-imdb.sprinklr.com/conversations/imdbcom/tv-show-search/63dbeac34a996013209cbb79

What are you seeking that was not already answered?

As to the login question, is it on IMDb.com, in an app, or on this forum (which is separate from IMDb; it's a service IMDb gets from Sprinklr)?

Bacatselos: I'm not seeing the same problem with the episode. I just did a search under TV Episodes for Homecoming and here are the results I got (shown as two screenshots, with an arrow added for the right episode):

So it was 17th on the list, but it was listed.
