As do I. But some good points are made though. For TV shows or games I could see it being a bit less awkward looking, as fcm mentioned. The reference issue commando makes is also a good one, which I can see especially in titles that might be quite commonly re-used. That said, I don't think forcing folks to make one extra click is asking too much - I still find it a bit unnecessary until they actually ARE re-used in our own database. But that's me. Streamlining and avoiding additional work for additional same-titles media pages is an arguably stronger point though.
