TheTVDB collects manually picked screen shots for each episode. It would be nice to show them instead of a randomly picked preview image (I get lots of episodes with random advertisment as preview which leaves room for improvement.) The only downside is the restricted size. From their wiki:

Episode images are small screenshots of each episode. Here's The Breakdown of the system

  1. Images are limited to one per episode
  2. Images are limited to a maximum size of 400 x 300 (400x225 for 16:9 images)
  3. Images should be uploaded in their original aspect ratio if the show is 16:9 then that should be the ratio of the image, even if your local network broadcast it in 4:3.
  4. Images should be an non-spoiler action shot from the episode not randomly generated so we just get a shot of a building or a street light.
  5. Images must be appropriate for viewing at a workplace. (i.e. NO NUDITY)
  6. Images shouldn't just be a title shot from the episode we already know the episode's name we don't need to see it again.
