Default 136 The Carbonaro Effect - phantom season 2?

I'll need to explain this a bit for it to be fully understood;

The Carbonaro Effect S01 (he's a magician with original content) currently on ch. 136 has been on the Discovery channels for years, I think first mainly on ch. 121.

It's endlessly repeated and has never gone past S01E12 that I've seen, even though internationally the season had 24 episodes.

Recently I mentioned this in a related thread elsewhere, now suddenly I'm seeing a S03 in the last couple of weeks. Great, if related to my mention or not.


But... today there's a S02E05 listed, only for that one slot and too similar to surrounding further S03 episodes so I think it's an error and is meant to also be part of S03.
The slot in question is next Friday the 5th of Jan. from 16:50 to 17:15.

(If possible please keep the same metadata season coding for any real S02 in the next few months, I've set a SBR based on this believed wrong one in the hope of catching S02 )

Hello

Discovery Family is airing all three seasons of the Carbonaro Effect at the same time. Note that Discovery in SA uses a different numbering system for most of its series, so the order and season numbers will be different from what you see on international websites.
It looks like they're airing these episodes for the holidays (but they are out of sequence). A full repeat of season 2 is scheduled for February, so if you set a series recording for S2 now you should get them all by then. Season 3 is also currently airing.

Great, thanks for all the detail Trisan.

Those into the genre - highly recommended, he's also a prankster
