Terribly Organized, but Good content

Too many 1.2.3 videos that are 7 mins long and are unsorted. Therefore, instead of a clearly defined 1 hour episodes from 1-100, you get 7 mins episodes that are like this:
1.3.1
2.4.1
1.1.1
3.2.1
1.1.2

There is no logical option to sort these and play them as they should, like this:
1.1.1
1.1.2
1.3.1
2.4.1
3.2.1

I had to take a screenshot of the playlist on iTunes via PC and use this as a reminder of which video to watch next.

Terribly organized, yet good content.
