Tom,

i feel your pain. i have a similar issue with Stargate Atlantis. i was watching season 2 when Comcast decided to move SciFi to digital cable only. i missed about 6 episodes or so from season 2. well they won't put them up on itunes. (only season 3 is available) i assume they don't want to canabilize the DVD sales, but it's quite irritating to wait for the release on DVD.

another related example is CBS and the show "The Unit". i've missed a few shows for season 2. CBS will show the most recent episode on their streaming service, innertube, but you can't get any of the old episodes. i assume they only have one episode up at a time because they can't afford the bandwidth if all the older episodes were available. i don't understand why tv networks won't just take a show, sell adverting for the download version and then seed it using bittorrent so they don't have the bear the full brunt of the bandwidth costs.
