Following on from @ gr8gonzo  comment here on serialize and deserialize XML

This will test if a show exist before adding it

            if(tv.Shows.Exists(show => show.TMBDBid == 77236))
                Console.WriteLine("A Discovery Of Witches Exists");
                tv.Shows.Add(new Show()
                    Name = "A Discovery Of Witches",
                    FolderName = "A Discovery Of Witches",
                    TMBDBid = 77236

How do I test if an episode exists

Tried this but both produced errors so didn't  continue  with  Episode.EpisodeNumber etc
if (tv.Shows.Exists(show => show.TMBDBid == 67133 && show.Season.SeasonNumber))

// AND this
if (tv.Shows.Exists(show => show.TMBDBid == 67133 && show.Season => Season.SeasonNumber))

Open in new window

Again expanding on the example  How do I list the episodes?

         foreach (Show show in tv.Shows)
                // Print out what TV shows are listed

                string ShowName = show.Name;
                string ShowID = show.TMBDBid.ToString();
                Console.WriteLine("ShowName: {0}, TMBDBid: {1} ", ShowName, ShowID);
                foreach (Season season in show.Season)
                    String SeasonNumber = season.SeasonNumber.ToString();
                    Console.WriteLine("SeasonNumber: {0}", SeasonNumber);
                foreach(Episode episode in show.season.)
                    // How do I list the episodes?
                   //                Error	CS1061	'Show' does not contain a definition for 'season' and no extension method 'season' accepting a first argument of type 'Show' could be found

Also when adding a new show or episode can you add it in order of show name then SeasonNumber and finally EpisodeNumber
