Hi all,
 
Hope you're well
 
Thanks for software
 
I use the "Next up" (NU) feature/section to balance my consumption habits across all the series I have - variety's the spice of life, right?
 
However, there's one drawback - new series' first episodes don't appear in NU
 
As a result new series are staying unwatched unless I navigate into the library folder and suffer the time consuming task of pruning unwatched series / first episodes
 
I don't necessarily agree with how NU currently works but I understand the logic[0] and I would prefer NU *did not* include first episodes than have to bother with marking a bunch of new series with a forget feature[1]
 
If you, too, have this first episode niggle then hopefully this thread generates some discussion or even better a solution
 
In the meantime may I suggest a simple enhancement to the episode counter
 
Before:
 
x
 
After:
 
x/y
 
x = total episodes remaining / to watch
y = total episodes
 
If anyone else reading this agrees please up-vote or reply "+1"
 
Let me know if you have any issues - happy to help
 
Hope this is clear/useful and to hear back
 
Cheers

I would like to see this as well. 

"Next" is usually taken to mean something that "comes after" but if you never watched the 1st episode there really is no "next". :)
