Oh dear, why did someone mess up so many The Jefferson's images

Either bliss is ignorance, or I'm just too unlucky to have found the vault of someone who had good intentions but missed.
It took over a month to fix the The Jefferson's season 4 images because everyone was on the wrong episode and there's still one bad episode for which I don't have a replacement image so I can't fix it.

I've now just found that images on season 1 are also messed up. The image on 1.2 belongs on 1.3 and the image on 1.3 belongs on 1.2, and based on the images and credits there are more messed up.

Unfortunately I can't fix season 1 because I don't have the show in a format where I can capture an image to replace the bad image which is mandatory because with only one image it is the de facto primary image which can't be manipulated.

IMDB, this isn't the only series that has this type of problem. Can you either develop a fix so that this type of bottleneck can be overcome, or make some suggestion as to how to fix something like this?  Also, please send a thanks to whoever uploaded all the images but let them know they screwed up. I have an idea as to why it's messed up and it's because Starz has the episode #s different than imdb. So whoever created the images just matched #s and didn't really pay attn.

If I sound frustrated, it's because I am. If anyone can tell me why I shouldn't, please tell me why not with a problem that I know exists but cannot fix.

Thank you.

Hi MikeTheWhistle -

Thanks for reporting these occurrences, I have filed a ticket for the applicable image tech team to investigate and fix, as soon as I have an update I will share the status with you here.

I know some might wonder why I seem to be so caring, or perhaps obsessed, with The Jeffersons. I had the privilege of meeting Zara Cully when I was a kid. Guess it made an impact.

Michelle, I went thru the images and this is what I saw.

No contributor will accuse you of being too obsessed. We all hate errors. We'd all be annoyed to find an image from a series tagged to the wrong episode. Thank you for fixing these.

I now see that these images are the ones from Starz's webpage. I suspect that someone official submitted them because several of the images are on actors' name pages which is the only way I think that could happen.

But just to show that they have a problem, if you look at the image from their page, both of the images on the episodes "The Strays" are bad. The one they show on Strays 1 has Zara Cully who had long passed away before that episode. The image for Stray1 is from 2.11 and the image from Stray2 I just watched on 1.7.
