iTMS Video Gripes

Does the video aspect of iTunes strike you as kind of hacked in and not well planned? The UI refers to videos as "songs" and "podcasts" in various places; is the latter intentional? I have a tough time resizing the video window. Sometimes I right click the video and see a "full screen" option, and sometimes I don't. It's the same video a couple seconds later. I hit command-F and nothing happens; it's still mapped to the visualizer. I don't care about the visualizer when I'm watching video. The thing that bothers me the most is the lack of episode numbers. Unlike songs, I care about watching a season in order, but in many of the views, it's difficult to order shows or even to tell whether they're in the correct order or not. Am I missing something? Update: Sam pointed out in the comments that I can go to the "Edit" menu, click "View Options", and make the episode number visible. Duh. I've been looking under the application preferences the entire time. Thanks, Sam.

I know for the Lost season you can order it by Track #. If thats not displayed, you have to adjust your Edit->View Options.
