Opening and ending sequence skip
this just seems obvious to me, but it would be great for there to be a setting (maybe an account setting or something) that would have the player skip opening and ending sequences. I mean its great on dvds/blu-rays to be able to hit "skip" and get right to the episode and then do it again at the end and get right to the post credit portion (where applicable) or right to the next episode.
A lot of people like to marathon episodes, and having to find the controller or mouse and babysit the fast forward button (or tap-skipping on a tablet or phone…. ugh!) makes sense as something to address in a "quality of life" kind of enhancement.
