    Anybody else encountering strange recent issues w/ TV & Movies missing a ton of Netflix content?

    One-off examples:

    - Doesn't see any episodes of "Damages"
    - Doesn't see any episodes of "Reaper"
    - Doesn't see any episodes of "Downton Abbey"

    What's odd is that, for example, in the actual Search result for "Damages," it correctly says "39 episodes available," but when I click through to TV & Movies from the Search result, it lists all episodes as being "Unavailable."

    I'm sure there are more. It is able to find plenty of things in Netflix, but there are a ton of gaps like the above.

    The divergence of information is probably due a difference in data that Netflix allows Google's search engines to scour. I hoping over time the information will be congruent between what's actually available and what shows up. You should know that this is a vast improvement from release. Especially, compared to when I picked up my Revue back in Oct 2010. The Netflix app didn't even have a search option back then.
