Best bet is to put them in MythVideo.
You can, if you like, use the old, legacy, unmaintained,
use-at-your-own-risk scripts myth_find_orphans.pl and
myth.rebuilddatabase.pl to put the data into the database (but note that
they will not insert some required information and will put some bad
information in the database--thus my recommendation that you just stick
the shows in MythVideo).
You can watch the shows from MythVideo. You can use Manage
Recordings|Previously Recorded to mark the episodes to allow re-record.
Then, when they're re-aired, they will go back to the TV section of MythTV.
