Rename subtitles files according to tv shows names found in a directory
#!/bin/bash
# Renames subtitles files according to tv shows names found in a directory
# Acceped syntaxes for season/episode are: 304, s3e04, s03e04, 3x04 (case insensitive)
#
# Usage:
# Put this gist somewhere in your $PATH, like /usr/local/bin/subtitles-renamer
# Chmod +x it
# cd ~/YourHolidaysTvShowsWithSubtitles
# subtitles-renamer
#
# Note: zipfiles will be unzipped and .zip will be removed
#
# There are bashisms to work with regular expressions,
# so you really need bash or a shell compatible
# unzip files, maybe there are subtitles in it...
for f in *.zip; do
if [ -e "$f" ]; then
unzip "$f"
rm "$f"
fi
done
# switch into case insensitive
shopt -s nocasematch

There are some issues with renaming S01E08 when you also have 1080p in the filename.

"Acceped syntaxes for season/episode are: 304..." This one conflict with 1080p in filenames (e08). Was unable to fix, so simply removed that option in the code:

if [[ "$f" =~ s([0-9]+)e([0-9]+) || "$f" =~ ([0-9]+)x([0-9]+) || "$f" =~ ([0-9]+)([0-9][0-9]) ]]; then
changed to
if [[ "$f" =~ s([0-9]+)e([0-9]+) || "$f" =~ ([0-9]+)x([0-9]+) ]]; then
_

if [[ "$movie" =~ ${SEASON}${EPISODE} || "$movie" =~ s0?${SEASON}e${EPISODE} || "$movie" =~ ${SEASON}x${EPISODE} ]]; then
changed to
if [[ "$movie" =~ s0?${SEASON}e${EPISODE} || "$movie" =~ ${SEASON}x${EPISODE} ]]; then

Awesome, Thanks.

Also, @isevcik this:

I would suggest to change order in condition:

if [[ "$f" =~ s([0-9]+)e([0-9]+) || "$f" =~ ([0-9]+)x([0-9]+) || "$f" =~ ([0-9]+)([0-9][0-9]) ]]; then

helped too.
