The "resume watching" tag only appears when there is no information to create the "continue watching" tag, like on the last episode of a currently airing shows. It is more like a fallback not needing to open the overview page to get the next episode. But if you want i can still add a option to hide the resume watching link, but it wont magically add the continue watching tag.
I know that it won't magically change to the "continue" tag, but I personally find the "resume" tag to be confusing and a little unnecessary. Having the ability to hide the "resume" tag would be fantastic!
