With the next release of the server you'll have an easier time creating and managing collections of TV series. Go to the full post

Maybe I'm just not seeing the correct set of options, but here's the issue I'm dealing with:

 

A user wants to watch all of the "Arrowverse" shows, which include Arrow, Flash, Supergirl and Legends. At several points in those series, they overlap and cross-over. So the order in which the episodes should be watched is based on the premiere dates of episodes in ALL of these series, not just one of them. (It occurs to me that another historical example would Buffy and Angel...)

 

At first glance, it seems this calls for the introduction of something similar to the Collections in Movies, so that related series can be identified, and the "Play All" option would switch between series as needed to view content in the correct order. Am I wrong?

 

Thanks for all the great work so far!

So assuming you're not implying that I spend a couple hours manually adding the individual episodes (for four series that are still in progress), as that is the exact kind of work I'm looking to a computer to save me from: Are there sort and filter options available within a playlist that I'm not seeing? Because simply adding the four series to a playlist means the episodes are in series order, not premiere date across the entire playlist.

This is something we were after for the "Chicago" series (Med, PD, Fire, etc.). I was only able to accomplish it with Plex.

You will be able to view TV collections more easily but it won't be exactly what you are asking for here.  There really isn't any public data to define these types of situations but it has come up before.

 

Watching multiple shows in broadcast order.

Crossover TV series?

no that’s exactly what I’m implying. It’s the only way of doing what you want at present. I don’t think it’s right, I have a similar open request for playlist reordering to be respected so I can manually create a playlist for the marvel cinematic universe

Also I think there could be a few bugs. I just tried to re-order my playlist and the re-order won't save...
