Apostrophe problem: Is this why? (1 Viewer)

The problem could be that single quotes are used in the code. Single quotes and apostrophe is the same character. If double quotes were used instead, it would probably work. It could also be an uneven amount of quotes?

Notice in the log above, only one single quote before DC, non at the end of the query. That's usually causing problems and the apostrophe in DC's may be is interpreted as the second single quote since that is the same ASCII number. Anyway, this query gives no results.

If the aphostrophe is removed from the search query, the search works.

If you edit the "pretty name" in the TV-Series database so that it has no apostrophe. Then subtitles will be found. This does not work in TV-Series config, only in database. It will only last until next database update.

Is there anyway the "pretty name" could stay without apostrophe?
