Well, I'm in the US and can't watch them either. Still don't know why, but I'll click on a video and it'll load for a while and then never start. The first commercial will play just fine, but the show just won't play.

It's still an awesome idea, especially for those of us who can't afford DVDs of *any* definition. LOL. (And I do have Joost, so when my computer isn't being completely unreasonable I can watch an episode without too much cajoling.)

Ampris, make sure your Flash plug-in is completely up to date in your browser. Often times new streaming shows offered like this are optimized for the newest version of the player only.

Also, with such large streaming files, performance will be affected by your internet connection speed.... the faster your download rate, the better it will play.

Good luck!
