Via Tender: Unusual search behavior

Reported by Travis Bell | March 9th, 2012 @ 02:28 PM | in Moon (closed)

Assigned to Tender discussion #415. As reported in Tender:

In my initial testing using the TMDb API, I've come across an unusual behavior while running similar search queries.

One of my test queries is "Lord of the Rings" which returns 6 results:
The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002)
The Lord of the Rings (1978)
The Lord of the Rings: The Hunt for Gollum (2009)
Ringers - Lord of the Fans (2005)

I accidentally ran one test as "The Lord of the Rings" - adding the "The" to the query - which only returns one result:
The Lord of the Rings (1978)

At first I was impressed that it discovered the exact match and limited it down, but then I quickly realized that as cool as that was I still expected to see the other results that are still potential matches for the query. I don't know if I might just be missing something obvious, but I wanted to bring it up just in case.
