  1. Hide shows in "My List" once all episodes watched much like tvmaze.com

    I'm overloaded by the amount of shows I watch, it's a little embarrassing. Anyway, I'm on a mission I guess. Once thing that strikes me as odd, when I complete all current episodes of a show, it still shows in My List. I would much rather see the shows that I am watching, but not currently completed than to see all shows I'm watching, completed to date or not. tvmaze.com, site I used before, would make any show with completed episodes drop off the list until a new episode came out. Best attribute of their site.

    You can now click “Hide watched” in your TV and Anime “Watching” lists to filter out shows where you watched all episodes.

  2. "Specials" considered as normal episodes

    For example in Downton Abbey, all season finales are called "Special", but they are actually just normal episodes. When I want to mark those as watched, they don't appear on my dashbord and I have to go to the "Specials" section to mark them. But very often this section changes its order and e.g. Special 5 becomes Special 8 or something like that.
    At least for Downton Abbey, changing those Specials to normal episodes would be great, so they don't get mixed up with Behind the Scenes episodes or so!

  4. Add app for better management!

    Add support to players or some app which is integrated into explorer so i could right click movie/serie and select i have watched this or something like that. Doing these things manually is too demanding.

    Simkl has Chrome extension AND Windows app for video players like What is Simkl TV Tracker app?
    ← Software
    At the moment, our Windows app has the ability to demonstrate how the application is already capable of detecting almost any TV show and Anime that can be downloaded from the internet and played through most popular video players.

    You can download the beta version from https://simkl.com/apps/
    With the help of the Simkl TV Tracker app you can detect most TV or Anime episodes downloaded from the internet or downloaded through iTunes.

    Instructions: Install Simkl TV Tracker, open any TV episode video file. In 7–15 seconds (it may take longer times for detecting rare Anime) you will see a small popup at the bottom right corner with the name of the TV show and it’s episode number that you’re watching.
    PS: Beta version is for demonstration purposes only, for Windows 7\8\10…

    You can find total count for shows and movies in Profile / Stats and in My TV list (link from the dashboard) at the bottom of the list will be stats for all your shows and movies for that list

    Currently, Simkl does not have options to watch all TV Shows, Anime or Movies. However, Simkl provides links for Netflix, Hulu and Crunchyroll where you can watch the TV shows and Anime.

    Simkl helps you track what you’re watching and discover new shows & movies. We have built the Simkl™ TV Tracker for passionate people who like to watch TV Shows, Anime and Movies on their computers, and who are tired of manually tracking all shows that they watch using outdated manual watchlists. For people who are geeky enough to want a hi-tech automated Watchlist solution no matter how you watch – download video files on your computer or watch streaming video online, on Netflix, Hulu, iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, etc…

  20. Degrassi: Next Class again, sorry :)

    Sorry, if there were another way I knew to contact you I would, but this is the only way that I know of haha. Degrassi: Next Class is a Netflix Original, meaning that they release full seasons. They already released all of Season 3 available for streaming, and I'm on episode 9 now. I'm not sure about other parts of the world, but at least in the U.S. it would be nice if I could mark "watched" on all episodes that I've seen. Thank you.
