  • If you look at a dictionnary, you'll find easily "Season" -> "Saison" and "Episode" -> "Épisode"

  • @Toto I think it would be fair to say that you can't tell how the sentence is structured just from that, though. That said, the question could use some attempt on the asker's part and a note on where the uncertainty lies.

  • I also didn't know whether the same word that's used for weather would be used for television, because in German at least they're not the same.
