Search Tips

The easiest place to start searching is our "Search" box up at the center top of every page. If you're in a hurry, just drop in the name of the person, title, or character you're looking for and we'll try to find the best match for you.

If you're not sure of the spelling, take a little more time and specify whether it is a Person or a movie/TV title, etc. In the general "All" search, we try to infer what you may have meant by your search query.

You can use the drop down to the right of the search box to help specify if you're looking for a title, TV episode, name, etc. Using this field can help narrow down the search results and help you find the page you're looking for.

If you don't see the result in the initial page of results, use the "More name matches", "More title matches", etc. Clicking this button will give you the full results for that name, title, or whatever you're searching for.

For more complex searches, we recommend using our Advanced Search feature. You can find this option by clicking "Advanced Search" in the drop down field next to the search box.
