I rearranged the order of my agents as Plastonick mentioned (moving local media towards the bottom), did a refresh, and now everything is loading as I'd expect.
Manual scan in Plex: You perform these scans and refresh steps in Plex to have media and its metadata populate so you can watch your content. While it can work with media that doesn’t conform to these conventions, it isn’t guaranteed.
But what if you have added content to the correct library folder on your computer, performed a scan and it doesn’t show up? If media isn’t showing up this is usually the first thing to check.
If you have not formatted your movies, music and TV shows correctly, Plex will not always see them whether you rescan or not. Metadata is all that useful stuff from IMDB or wherever that tells you about each show.
A scan collects the media itself and populates it in your library.
This page on the Plex website describes exactly how to name your movies, TV shows, music and anything else you want to add to your server.
Follow this formatting exactly and your media should always show up.
