    Here's your answer...

    This has been frustrating me too. Apple really should build this functionality into iTunes in a better way than it already is.

    The first thing you can do is to select all episodes from a certain season, and change the "Show" label from say "The Office" to "The Office - Season 5" and then it will show up in your TV Shows syncing options. But this is messy. If it is a current season, every time the new episode downloads you'll have to change the "Show" meta data for that episode.

    Here is a better way that I just found... Create a smart playlist with two conditions: First would be "Show" is "The Office" and second is "Season" is "5." Then in your syncing settings change from syncing 1 most recent episode of a "Season" to 1 most recent episode of a "Playlist" and select your playlists. Now all you have to do is change the one condition for the current season # in your smart playlist once a year and you'll have the newest stuff.

    Whew. Hope this helps. I found this info here:
