As an author I would like to say a few words.

I watch a lot of TV shows and sometimes I have problem remembering how last season ended or the last episode I watched and there was no easy way to find that out. I could use home theater PC with library mode, but due to habits, it wasn’t working for me ether.

Then, there is a time I want to find that one funny episode and watch it again. Since I couldn’t find any resource that fit my needs, I decided to create one by myself - a website where I can see every episode in 50 frames of thumbnails / recaps together with according subtitles.

There’s bunch of useful tools that helped me out to automate the process. SickRage, which downloads newest episodes using uTorrent, SickRage post-processor notifies Django manage.py script, which calls ffmpeg and creates thumbnails and matches with subtitles. After processing is done, script deletes video file. Hosted on Hetzner, images on Amazon S3 (+Amazon Cloudfront).

I intentionally kept it simple and built just basics, therefore any feature suggestions are welcome.
Hope you find this useful, the same as me! :)
