I think so. My initial reaction was just one of those "Fu** me running!" kind of moments. Jmarshall's looking at it now.

This is kind of what the TV view has evolved into for me for the poster view. I'm wondering what everybody thinks about it.
The few variations of this I've been thinking about were to keep the TV shows list down on the left side as in the movie section. Otherwise, I could make the info part stretch all the way across the screen, maybe put fekker's DVD extra gfx over there.
Also, whenever they're available from the DB, I'll have the network/mpaa icons in the bottom portion of the info bar, as well as the flags for HD/Audio stuff.
I dunno. Maybe make the info as tall as the poster and keep the show list visible?
Edit: Second Idea...display either season posters at the bottom, or fekker's extra media stuff...

I think the first looks better in my opinion. looks very good

I agree. Whatever leaves the most fanart visible gets my vote.

I'd say do the larger poster + the smaller info window together.

I agree i would prefer to just see fanart myself it's cleaner that way

I've definitely not forgotten the fact that a lot of you prefer to have minimal screen real-estate taken up whenever possible. My intentions with the views presented were to have one view that does take up some room, but displays a lot of cool stuff. Studio Logos, TV-MPAA rating, and cover/CD images as provided by MIP.
So, what I think will be the end option is to have like I do in the movies section, where you can pick between having a tiny little box that just shows a synopsis; a tiny box w. synopsis and poster; or the large view with all the trimmings. This is pretty well implemented in movies already. What I wound up doing was just taking the large view for movies and duplicating that view.
So for those of you who want description + fanart only...you can have it. For myself and anybody else who prefers a bit more eye candy...we can have that too.
Oh, and if if you haven't caught it already, this skin is also wide-icon friendly as well.
