Definite crash bug with ongoing seasons

description

The program always seems to crash when I add new episodes to a lot of series (Heroes, 24, The Simpsons). The problem definitely seems to be linked to getting the thumbnails as that's when it seems to be crashing.

I have discovered that when the program crashes getting a (episode) thumbnail it's because the current episode
being processed is stated as having a thumbnail on theTVDB.com but when you go and check, there's actually no
image displayed but it links to a non-existent jpg file.
The program has already correctly renamed the episode, so I move it out of the folder, re-run and then everything
goes fine for all other episodes (assuming no other missing thumbnail). Once done I move the problem episode
back into the folder.

This is only a temp fix because next time I run the program (new episodes/seasons added) it will still crash.

Beyond having theTVDB.com fix remove the bad image link, the program needs to check for bad response
when it finds a missing image (which should be there).
