What I would like to see is changing the Recent Episodes list to be sorted by Air Date.
I believe this would be easy to implement by changing the retrieval SQL statement. Currently the ORDER BY clause is:
order by idEpisode desc
order by CASE WHEN c05="" THEN (SELECT MAX(c05) FROM episode WHERE episode.idepisode<episodeview.idepisode) ELSE c05 END desc, idEpisode desc
Additional thoughts would be to make this an option via the settings or skin.
