Summary:• I prefer themoviedb.org (TMDb) than IMDb. I always use TMDb first to find titles. If I can not find the title I am looking for with TMDb, then I use IMDb second.
Strength:• TMDb has less risk of censorship and abuse. Because the data you add to TMDb is owned by you the not-for-profit community. Instead of being owned by a for-profit corporation such as IMDb.

Great website to check tv series and movies info like release date and reviews.
Great website to search info for tv series and movies. I like to use this more than imdb because its faster website and i can find the info i need fast.
TMDb has potential but lacks things like Alternate Versions, Soundtrack listings, Filming Locations, Goofs, Trivia, etc. which, unfortunately, still makes IMDb indispensable. Also, needs some kind of TV episode tracking, which seems like kind of a no-brainer. It has a much cleaner & nicer look to it than IMDb's junky page.
