I created a new movie card titled "Chef's Table: BBQ" using the IMDB lookup. It was found, so I selected that show from the drop down list. The query filled the Original Title field with this instead ”Angry Beavers Dagski and Norb/Shell or High Water" plus other card fields all related to that incorrect TV show.
The URL field populated by the query displays The IMDB website has The zero at end is missing on the card URL field which causes the wrong TV show info to be imported is what I'm guessing.

I had this same thing happen about 10 or 15 times when I tested over a 100 movies that I imported into the sample database. In every case that I investigating the last digit was missing on the movie card.

One theory that I have is the query is designed for IMDB title number to be only seven digits and some shows have 8 digits. So the last digit is omitted.

Also, if I fix the URL field to the correct number, is there a way to update the movie card based on the URL field and not the title?
