while series of video and subtitles have unmatched file names, rename subtitles the same as video files.

for jj in `seq -f "%02.0f" 1 12`; do rr=`ls *S04E$jj*.smi`; tt=`ls *S04E$jj*.avi`; mv "$rr" "${tt%.*}.smi"; done
Subtitles' file names contain S04E01, S04E02, ... S04E12 and end with ".smi". Videos' file names contain S04E01, S04E02, ... S04E12 and end with ".avi". You can change the patterns by changing `ls *S04E$jj*.smi` and `ls *S04E$jj*.avi` parts. You can change the number of starting and ending file by changing `seq -f "%02.0f" 1 12` part.
