Editors' Review

If you watch a lot of television, it might be tough to archive all your favorite shows solely in your head. This portable, IMDb-esque download tells you all the essential info about TV shows within a snazzy interface, but it doesn't have much usefulness without a built-in media player.

The program mainly operates as a downloadable version of the Web site TheTVDB.com, a community-driven and open database of televisions shows. Along with episode, actor, and other info from TheTVBD.com, Free TvDB also uses several Web sites, primarily clips from YouTube, to bring users further content related to their favorite shows.

Free TvDB is is advertised as being focused on anime, but it's easy to find dramas, comedies, mini-series, or reality TV shows, too. Each show has its own page with menus for cast, photos, and episode guides. If you own the program, you can track the format (digital downloads, DVDs, Blu-ray, etc.) as well as other inventory data. The program can't play any of the files you already have on your computer, but it does include 1,026 TV show intros and counting, all powered by YouTube, natch. While it's cool the app links to classic TV intros like "Manimal," "Perfect Strangers," and "The Phoenix," it gets serious points off for opening YouTube links in Internet Explorer (instead of my default browser).

Free TvDB is a neat little encyclopedia for TV shows. It seems like a no-brainer if you are familiar with and use TheTVDB.com. Other users with a need for a basic DVD or digital TV inventory system should give it a try. People with more-advanced needs for playing the TV shows they already own should pass.
