    You can't save or record them. They use a special file type to keep people from doing that. I'm hoping they either air them or put them on iTunes.

    They were good. I especially liked episode 6. It had me on the edge of my seat.

    I should also note that recording them is illegal. Discussing ways to do that is also a TOS violation.

    Isn't the international law that you can record whatever you want as long it is only used by yourself?

    Anyways, I too live outside the US, and can't watch it. Is it possible to do it with a proxy server or something?

    The site below has the first four, so I'm assuming that itwill also have the final two shortly.

    [Link deleted by Editor]

    I'll keep a look out and post on this thread again if they show up.

    I'm also outside the US, so cheers for looking for the episodes. It'll be good to finally see the last two.

    It's annoying how these American companies keep forgetting international fans. I really want to see the final two eps, but cos I'm in Australia I'll have to wait for ages, if ever.

    Please DO NOT discuss/provide links/whatever ways to illegally watch or download TV episodes on this site. (This includes sites that link to sites and so on that link to the illegal download).It is a violation of ToS.

    I don't want to moderate someone, but I have to if the discussion goes in this direction.

    How is it illegal to tell someone how to watch a show that's FREE on the internet? It's not like they're stealing something as they are giving it away for free, and they will be forced to watch the crappy commercials just like we were. Two words non-US lovers of Drive...PROXY SERVERS. I won't get technical but google that and you should be able to work the rest out for yourself if you know what you're doing.

    While I may agree with you in principle, I have to play devil's advocate here.
    :

    How is it illegal to tell someone how to watch a show that's FREE on the internet?

    In the same way as it is illegal to tell someone how to watch a show that's broadcast FREE over the air.
    Basically, FOX allows you to watch the two episodes on their myspace page if they like you (i.e. you are located in the US). That way, they get a) advertisment money in whatever form and b) keep their options to sell the show to foreign markets.

    So, how do I put it... It is not illegal to tell someone how to watch a show that's free on the internet. But if the way how to see said show is in violation to the copyright, then the discussion of such means is a violation of TV.com ToS and shall therefore not be discussed here.

    This is exactly it. That was perfectly said. Thank you. Furthermore, as a site moderator, I'm obligated to do something about it when I see a TOS violation. I simply can't ignore it.

    I'm sorry that they've done it this way. I really am. I would love for people outside the US to be able to see these episodes. I disagree with networks restricting online viewing to people in the US. FOX is not the only network that does it either. They all do it that way.

    The bad thing with this series is they cancelled it so quickly, it's not even likely that they'll ever release it in other markets.

    Prbly not, if you're outside of the US and still having trouble, PM me if you need to know how to use a public proxy server and what you do with it is your business...

    This is a grey area. I've not found that using a proxy is illegal, but it's questionable. It's better not to post instructions. I would suggest taking it to e-mail. PMs can be reported. I'm not trying to be a jerk or deny anyone the opportunity to see these episodes. I am just trying to keep people from getting TOS violations at this site.

    What you do away from this site is your business and I'm not going to say anything about that at all.
