So when the user selects a series, you check if the content type is a single item or a series. If it is a movie, then launch an roSpringboardScreen to display the movie and let the user play it, otherwise use the episode_list_url to retrieve the list of episodes as xml, parse that data then create a new roPosterScreen and display that content there.
