Watch List Design Update

I'm not a graphic designer and this is just a couple of minutes work in paint, but I think with just a couple of modification the site would look much cooler: https://i.imgur.com/vHhfKZ2.png

Hey H3x0r, that's not a bad suggestion at all and looks nicer. Also makes it easier to identify a show.
However in the current setup adding images would substantially increase the size of the page.
When improvements are made to the watchlist I'll keep your suggestion in mind.

Indeed, I'd suggest if we were to do this it would have to lazy load the images.

For those not familiar with the term, only load the images when they're in view (with a placeholder in the interim).

When you open the front page there is "Popular shows airing tonight" and "Upcoming Season Premieres". Below each one is 5 images. The 10 images occupies a total of 167 KB. I don't know if an average user has more or less series on their watch list, but I don't think that 200 KB will slow the page that much.

On many websites, I saw that after an update, it was possible to choose whether to display the old or the new page. It could be a possibility for those with slower internet connection or less mobile data.

I have over 400 shows on my watchlist lol. There's not much need to load them all in at once.

What if you could decreased the size of the image to only as high as "episode" to the bottom of the table with the 3rd episode, and move "view all" to under the show title so it's by the progress bar. Would make it a little less of a substantial increase. :P
