Replying to myself. Notice above I said the 'bad data' episodes started
from Wednesday and went forward. Well (according to Mike T Dean in this
mythfilldatabase refreshes tomorrow's data everyday.
Since I didn't have any episodes missing data for tomorrow I ran
"mythfilldatabase --refresh-all" and now the aforementioned Family Guy
episodes have been corrected. If I had just let myth run its course
Wednesday's data would have been fixed tomorrow, Thursday's the next
day, and so on.
So I guess the moral is, you shouldn't worry about bad data unless its
on today or tomorrow's listing. You could run --refresh-all but it would
just be more load on the SD servers.
