One of the tv shows we were watching was axed in the US, but because it was a joint US/Cdn production, aired fully in Canada. Meanwhile, I have learned that all the eps are to be found on isohunt, but I haven't a clue about this type of file sharing.

1. How do you DL & view these files?
2. I use AVG Free & Malwarebytes & wonder, is this enough protection?

Again, completely a newbie about this kind of stuff, so please no flaming....

Thanks,

Unless you can prove to us that the material you want to download is not copyrighted, we cannot advise you on how to obtain copyrighted materials via file torrents otherwise known a peer-to-peer sharing. Isohunt is a peer-to-peer file sharing program. Since this is a US based forum we must adhere to US laws. Bleeping Computer bases the FORUM RULES as quoted here, on US copyright infringement laws.

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.
