I think it used to use the air date of the episode for the production 
date.  That is what is still shown under Description in the Internet 
Search results (although it doesn't appear in the details when an 
episode is selected) and what I have been putting in manually since it 
was changed.  Maybe it wasn't intended to have individual episodes as 
entries in tellico, but that is the way I have been using it, especially 
since I have some discs or sets that only contain two or three episodes 
and many sets that only contain one season.  Until recently I had very 
few, if any, complete series sets for series that ran more than one season.
