Please include the Episode Number as part of the title when displaying Episodes in Filmographies (and elsewhere). For example, if you replaced the (TV Episode) (which currently is part of the title in Filmography by Type), you could add the data with no increase in the data length (e.g. (Ep. 10.15)). Putting it there gives significant information : when was there a Season break? are the 4 items listed for this person widely spaced, or a possible arc? Also, many people will find the Season Number more helpful than the year. Even if one saw the original airings, it is easier to place, say, Episode 5.xx within the continuing story line than remembering what was aired in 1976, on top of which each year normally contains parts of 2 Seasons, and there can be large changes between them.Being able to see the Episode Numbers in the Actor's filmography would certainly help me a lot.---------------------------------------On a secondary (and lesser point), it would also be good to include the Series Title along with the Episode Title in Known For. Seeing that John Smith (II) is known for Episode 2.1 while John Smith (X) is known for Episode 1.3 is really not helpful in choosing between the two of them.

It should only require a small tweak to the code, but it'd be well worth it.

This suggestion arose from this discussion:
