I think there have been 3 different occasions I've needed to "mark as watched" large groups:
Initially when I moved from using a different media player to xbmc, and was partway through a number of series.
After rescanning my library when I had a few series that weren't detecting new episodes. I backed up and restored the watched status with Milhouse's texture cache utility, but about 10% of series didn't restore the watched state correctly (possibly due to minor changes in series name).
When I've replaced a series with a higher quality version (e.g. sickbeard's archive version). The watched settings get lost here.
