    I have noticed that series with an apostrophe in the name gets little or no results when searching subtitles.
    I tested to remove the apostrophe in the database "Pretty Name" section and searching worked perfectly.
    Problem is that the change isn't permanent. Apostrophes are back with the next database update.

    Could you please make "Pretty Name" section without apostrophes?

    Pretty Name should stay as is as its it the actual series name defined online. The change you want would need to be done in SubCentral, maybe it can have an option or similar to strip certain characters where providers don't return good results.
