Watching ‘Secret Life’ Online: Torrents Mislabeled, Stream Gets Direct Link

Downloaders of The Secret Life of the American Teenager are in a panic. Two episodes into Season 2, no torrents are to be found.

Until now.

It turns out that Season 2 hasn’t started at all, and that it’s actually S01E12 and S01E13 that we should be looking for.

The properly labeled episodes can be found on a few trackers but the RSS feeds have yet to figure out the mixup.

If you have the bandwidth, ABC Family has both episodes online. Their new year re-design came a week late, but it has welcome changes, including the ability to link directly to a show.

Now we can all stop panicking and go back to bitching about Hulu pulling It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Election Night with No TV Set

When I gave up TV in July, it was pretty easy. The weather was nice and re-runs were the only thing on. Now, on Election Day, I finally feel the loss. I no longer have endless channels of mindless blabbering giving me up-to-the-millisecond election coverage. If I want to get information, I have to look for it.

There are a number of places to get “live” polling results, including NPR, The New York Times, CBS, CNN, and (my favorite) Google. I’m sure I’ll be checking all of them over and over again, weighing them against one another.

But, if you’re like me, you feel the need to stare at a talking head, so I found a live stream of CNN over @ uStream.TV (alternate stream) and all-day coverage @ GRITtv.

First Review: 18 JULY 2008
From the Website:

“the show with zefrank” was a short video program produced Monday through Friday
for one year (March 17, 2006 – March 17, 2007). […] Start by watching a popular episode or two—but realize that you’re joining a conversation already in progress.

While no longer topical, “the show with zefrank” definitely holds up with age. That isn’t something you can say about a lot of Internet Original material.

Smart, hip, and funny – this podcast is a shining example of the quality that Internet Originals can be.

I recommend starting at the beginning and watching three or four in a setting. Any more than that can cause confusion, then addiction, and finally sudden withdrawl when the show comes abruptly to a stop.

Ze, I know you’re still out there. I hope you come back online with another show.

First Review: 19 JULY 2008
I watched the pilot episode of yesterday. It was 180 degrees from what I was expecting. When I read Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver, I was expecting a sitcom. When I saw it was an hour long, I still imagined something closer to The O.C. than The Sopranos. Instead, I got the best Pilot I’ve seen all month. I cannot wait to finish Season 1.

First Review: 17 JULY 2008
A surprisingly complex family drama that shows how a teenager can be smart, stupid, scared, and brave all at the same time. The Secret Life of the American Teenager takes an unblinking look at the consequences of a stupid one time mistake, and how gossip and reputation is more powerful than even the harshest realities.

After just three episodes, I find myself looking forward to new episodes each week.

So far I’ve only found one stream for this show. ABC Family makes you click the screen after each commercial. It’s a minor annoyance, but still an annoyance. If anyone finds another stream, please send me a link.
