Hi Hector
I have just been watching season 3 of Crossing Lines on Netflix. When I started searching for picture contributions I noticed that there is a discrepancy between the episode lists, episode synopses & cast lists. Netflix lists:
S3:E1 Redux - Dorn's 2nd is kidnapped
S3:E2 Whistle blower - Sophie's source must be located
S3:E3 In Loco Parentis - a student is killed when a school bus is held for ransom
S3:E4 Recoil - an Italian judge is murdered
S3:E5 Executioner - a vigilante killer kills his victims in the same way his victims killed others
S3:E6 Lost & Found - a man is contagious with CLV
S3:E7 Dragon - searching for a sex trafficking ring
S3:E8 Heat - Polonium 210 is stolen
S3:E9 Enemy of the People - the man about to release an important environmental report is killed
S3:E10 Penalty - members of a soccer team are targeted for hate crimes
S3:E11 Expose - a journalist is murdered before she can expose drug counterfeiting
S3:E12 Obscura - an assassin comes out of retirement to target a right wing speaker.
I know that air dates may result in a different order but why is everything else so out of whack & what can be done about it?

Apparently, it's Netflix who's wrong:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crossing_Lines#Season_3
http://www.tv.com/shows/crossing-lines/episodes/
http://www.tvguide.com/tvshows/crossing ... es/544606/
http://rlseries.com/crossing-lines-season-3/
etc...

But why are the plot lines so mixed up? For example (for IMDb)

Dragon - plot line & cast of In Local Parentis
In Loco Parentis - plot line & cast of Recoil
Recoil - plot line is OK but cast is for Lost & Found
Expose - plot line is OK but cast is for Enemy of the People
Enemy of the People - plot line & cast of Penalty
Penalty - plot line is OK but cast is for Expose

That's a lot of errors!

The IMDb has the same plot lines as the other websites.

When Netflix streams "dragon" are you sure that it's "Dragon"? Is the episode name displayed with the credits?

Isn't it more likely that the other websites have the same plot lines as IMDb? You use IMDb as your source too. I already tried looking for the episode name in the beginning & ending credits without any luck. My information about the casts IS accurate.

My plot lines fit the titles well enough, for example, an episode called In Loco Parentis about kids at a boarding school, an episode called Recoil about a wife recoiling from her abusive husband, an episode called Expose about a journalist's expose, an episode called Penalty about a soccer team. If those fit, then wouldn't the other episode names fit by elimination?

I guess my question is... who checks IMDb?

The IMDb has millions of users who contribute data or report when they find some error:

"We welcome all valid corrections."
