I'm not sure if it's just me. But from the queue is it possible to see what episodes you actually have available to watch. I would love, more than anything, for the queue to just include the current episode that the show is on.

To me this seems like it wouldn't be too hard. But this slight feature would allow me to know if new episodes have been released (for sometimes I'm not sure how much time has passed since I last checked... and I get confused). Just a little number stating the last episode released would solve this problem completely.

Of course, if I'm just missing something and am being stupid please tell me. Otherwise I think this really should be added.

You are not alone. They could simply replace "Ongoing" with the current episode (i.e., "Episode 6") and possibly change "Series Status" to "Current Episode", which would allow "Completed" to make sense.

It is a mystery to me why the queue doesn't already do this, because people have been asking for it since before they released the queue. They have a page with the last episode you've seen, and a page with the current episode for the series, but don't seem to be able to put both data on the same page. How can they look at Hulu's queue and not see the difference in usefulness?

I wrote my own queue in less than a day. I created a Google code project for the Pat Anime Tracker at http://code.google.com/p/pat-anime-tracker/ if you wanted to download/hack it, or use my personal site at http://pat.dev.roswellstudios.com/

My current hope is that if enough people see a working queue for CR shows, it will embarrass CR in to fixing their own queue.

I know, unless the website is an utter disaster at the back-end then it should be almost trivial to add the current episode. It doesn't even need to do more than that.

I don't know that they use as a back-end for this site, but assuming they haven't made it stupidly it should be a simple case of, when inserting the last episode watched, look up the current episode and add that as well. But I just don't understand why they don't add such a simple addition to make the queue that much more powerful.
