You can also give a try to vdbpy, an IMDbPY-based program I've
written. You can use it to add to the database a single movie
or a list of movies (you can also use it to update the movies
currently in the database with information retrieved from IMDb).
IMDbPY is currently in a transitory situation: the 2.4 release
doesn't handle the newly introduced support for tv series' episodes,
while the 2.5 has full support to it (but the "sql" data access
system is still being rewritten to be db-independent); try the
versions - of both IMDbPY and vdbpy - in the CVS.
