any other good sites for TVshows?
I tried registering for extreme TV, but it won't accept...
Piratebay torrents are getting very little bandwith...

i have no idea about torrent sites, i'm too busy ripping my actual dvds to hard disks now that hard disk prices have finally returned to normal (3600 baht/2TB, normal enough for me).
usenet's probably still pretty good, but you'd need a subscription service with long retention times to really take full advantage of it (something like Giganews). Giganews ain't cheap (about $30/month for the deluxe package) but it comes with a very good VPN in case you want to read all the things MICT don't like you seeing. they also have all the files uploaded to usenet since about 2009, maybe longer.
Imodium can't stop me.
got an invite?
here's a link, but bear in mind that there are much cheaper usenet services (although they probably won't offer the same file retention, completeness, or throw in a VPN with your subscription).
EZTV is great. You just go to the show you want, click on it to get to the episodes, download them (they're quick to download) and you're all good. I downloaded the last two seasons of CSI New York and saved them on my laptop.
There's also something called YTEpisodes which has many TV shows on YouTube. They play instantly and the quality is good.

I recommend HBO's "Enjoy It!". It's a six episode documentary TV series, produced by Zach Galifianakis. The subject is Hollywood comic Brody Stevens. It's a captivating study of the life and career of a moderately successful comic operating in the no man's land that is show business without the fame. I wrote his wikipedia page, so that illustrates my opinion of Brody.
Here's episode one and two. The other four eps are on the youtube sidebar:
Anyone else watching The Newsroom?
Perhaps the best HBO original series yet.

Ricky Gervias is annoying, but the stuff he makes is usually brilliant.
Life's too short is a new 'mockumentary' series about a dwarf who is a also a real life 'movie star'.
Incredibly awkward comedy which has a cringe factor beyond the pale. However, it is completely hilarious and probably the comedy of the year.
The Ricky Gervais show featuring Karl Pilkington:
Made in the style of the Hanna Barbara cartoons, this series is basically Ricky Gervais, Steven Merchant and Karl Pilkington talking bollocks (Karl does pretty much all of that to be fair). The use of animation is a weird thing at first but I understand the reason for it. When Karl describes one of his 'ideas/true stories he heard about' they use animation to bring his thoughts to life, which works really well. This is piss your pants funny at times.

This is a must. Just discovered it by accident. Paying homage to Monty Python among others all the shows are on youtibe,. From the man who helped write Alan Partidge's stuff here is ( I can't spell his name something like Armando Ianucci)...
If the opening sketch on this doesn't make you laugh...then I give up.
