Hey CR,

I think it would be pretty useful to be able to define the order in which series sort themselves by default. Right now when you're on a series' page it puts newest episodes on top, which can be problematic since it's possible for thumbnails to spoil things...

It'd be nice to have an option in profile settings to set the behavior to sort by oldest first in order to avoid this kind of situation. Usually you can get around this with the queue, but that's not always an option.

Thanks

i think this would be a great idea. also, i think that the default for completed series that someone is looking at for the first time, should be not the most recent episodes, but the oldest... also, once you start watching that it would default to expanding the season you most recently watched.

not only because as you stated, newer thumbnails can pretty much spoil what is going to happen... but also that some people don't realize that the are starting in a latter season, and start watching and in the first 5 mins have the story of the episodes from the previous season(s) spelled out for them. which i am sure is frustrating for some people.

if you look at the comments in some of the multi season shows, you can find a lot of people commenting that they started watching the wrong season, or are wondering where the prior season is in some cases. a good example of this that i recently came across is AKB0048, where you find in the comments for season 2 episode 1 statements like, "I wish we could also see the first season!" or "Would this make any more sense if one had seen the first season?" which means that they didn't notice that the prior season was there in the first place.

Can this please become a thing? I just made the exact same mistake. I didn't even realize it until I finished the entire newest season. I just figured they assumed people read the manga first to get all the backstory contained in season 1. Now I know to watch out for that but I would put money on me forgetting at some point in the future and doing it again.

I just spoiled Nisekoi for myself by accidentally watching the S2E1 first, thinking 'this is an odd approach to the genre, skipping straight to this. It's like they skipped the first seas - *ESC* *scroll* - crap.'

I'd like to see something like a warning popping up to say you're watching the second season of a show you've never seen before.

It'd be nice to have an "avoid spoilers" option that would hide thumbnails to episodes you haven't seen before, maybe change it to a plain background with the season and episode number on it?

I'm a little bitter.

There should be a bar above the videos stating which season episodes are part of. It looks like /Nisekoi is a bit odd in that it just shows the season title as "Nisekoi:" I'm not sure if that's an error, or on purpose, but I'd suggest opening a ticket using the /contact form to let customer support know that it may have an incorrect title.

That's the official title for the second season, which definitely makes it more confusing. But no matter the show, the most recent season is the first thing you see and the previous seasons are collapsed. If you're not paying attention it's easy to miss.
