Example Usage

The trakt.tv module has interfaces to all of the TV resources mentioned above and is almost a direct port of the trakt.movies module. It has the same interfaces to dismiss shows from recommendations, getting recommendations, rating a list of shows, rating a list of episodes, getting a list of valid show genres, a list of trending shows, and getting a list of recently updated shows and dealing with specific shows, seasons, and episodes.

For our first example let’s start by grabbing a specific show

>>> from trakt.tv import TVShow
>>> it_crowd = TVShow('The IT Crowd')

Well that was pretty painless. Ok, now let’s pull some data out of our it_crowd object

>>> it_crowd.people
[<Person>: Chris O'Dowd, <Person>: Katherine Parkinson, <Person>: None,
<Person>: Richard Ayoade, <Person>: Chris Morris, <Person>: Matt Berry, <Person>: Noel Fielding]
>>> it_crowd.top_episodes
[<TVEpisode>: The IT Crowd S1E1 Yesterday's Jam, <TVEpisode>: The IT Crowd S1E2 Calamity Jen,
 <TVEpisode>: The IT Crowd S2E1 The Work Outing, <TVEpisode>: The IT Crowd S1E4 The Red Door,...
>>> it_crowd.top_watchers
[<User>: b'Vaelek', <User>: b'Governa', <User>: b'shanos404', <User>: b'b_jammin666',
<User>: b'pavvoc', <User>: b'heartbraden', <User>: b'tressal', <User>: b'hherrera',...
>>> it_crowd.genres
[Genre(name='Comedy', slug='comedy')]

Now that we’ve gotten some information on the show, let’s start doing something interesting and interacting with the API via the TVShow‘s methods

>>> it_crowd.add_to_library()
>>> it_crowd.comment('Wow, I REALLY love this show')
>>> it_crowd.comment('They should never have given Jen the internet.',
                     spoiler=True, review=True)

Now that we’ve gotten some information on the show, let’s dive down and get some information on the show’s seasons and episodes

>>> s1 = it_crowd.seasons[1]
>>> s1.episodes
[<TVEpisode>: The IT Crowd S1E-1 Yesterday's Jam, <TVEpisode>: The IT Crowd S1E-1 Calamity Jen,
<TVEpisode>: The IT Crowd S1E-1 Fifty-Fifty, <TVEpisode>: The IT Crowd S1E-1 The Red Door,
<TVEpisode>: The IT Crowd S1E-1 The Haunting of Bill Crouse, <TVEpisode>: The IT Crowd S1E-1 Aunt Irma Visits]
>>> pilot = s1.episodes[0]
>>> pilot.title
'Yesterday's Jam'
>>> pilot.overview
'Jen is hired as the manager Reynholm Industries although she doesn't know the first thing about computers.'
