Coping with TV series boxed sets with odd episode orders

I just picked up four boxed sets covering the first five seasons of a TV show over 15 DVDs. While the first four discs were simple enough to set up stubs for (being S01E01-04, S01E05-09, S02E01-04, S02E05-09) the remaining discs contain episodes out of order based on TheTVDB.com, some of which span two or more seasons. The episode orders for the remaining discs are:

 

  • S02E11 S02E10 S02E12 S02E13 S02E15                 (S02E10-13, S02E15)
  • S02E14 S02E16 S02E17 S02E19 S02E18                 (S02E14, S02E16-19)
  • S02E20 S03E02 S03E01 S03E03                              (S02E20, S03E01-03)
  • S03E05 S03E04 S04E02 S03E10 S03E09 S03E06   (S03E04-06, S03E09-10, S04E02)
  • S03E07 S03E08 S03E11 S03E06 S03E12 S05E03   (S03E06-08, S03E11-12, S05E03)
  • S03E13 S03E14 S03E15 S04E10 S04E07                 (S03E13-15, S04E07, S04E10)
  • S04E03 S04E01 S04E08 S04E09 S04E11                 (S04E01, S04E03, S04E08-09, S04E11)
  • S05E05 S04E05 S04E04 S05E06 S05E04                 (S04E04-05, S05E04-06)
  • S05E15 S05E02 S05E01 S05E07 S05E08                 (S05E01-02, S05E07-08, S05E15)
  • S04E12 S05E09 S05E13 S05E14                              (S04E12, S05E09, S05E13-14)
  • S05E10 S05E11 S05E12 S05E16                               (S05E10-12, S05E16)

Unfortunately, despite how the TV naming rules may appear, there's no support for videos or stubs that cross seasons or skip episodes, meaning that I can't get Media Browser to accurately keep metadata for these discs in my library. Therefore, I need suggestions on how to best include the episodes on these discs in my library. If anyone's faced this issue themselves, guidance on what you did would be greatly appreciated.

Is it possible to rip the episodes 1by1, so you don't need the spanning I would recommend that. If that is not an option hopefully someone else can be more useful :)

If I wanted to rip the episodes I would have simply done so and not have this issue. I prefer not to do that when I own shows and movies on disc, though, because it leaves me more space for things that I have to download instead.
