Weeds - Season 8 Episode 5 is Missing

Weeds - Season 8 Episode 5 is Missing

I'm trying to watch Weeds, Episode 5 of Season 8, but it is missing.  The listings go from Episode 4 to Episode 6.  I also tried looking at On-Demand to find it, but it is missing there as well as online.

 

Thanks,

Lisa

I'm also having this problem.  Can someone please take care of this ASAP?

 

Also, I'm paying you money for this service.  Please stop with the TVGuide Channel advertisements and editing of the show.  I would like to view the show in an unedited format.  This is not ABC Family.

Hi all,

 

For legal reasons, Weeds Season 8, Episode 5 has been pulled down from the site and we don’t have any ETA for the replacement.

 

I am very sorry.

Why are you the only one at comcast who seems to know this?  (three tickets later) Maybe you can get this published internally so people know and customers don't waste time trying to get this resolved.

 

Please do provide an eta on when this will be fixed.  I'd like to finish up Season 8  as it winds down.

Hi Joe,

What "legal reasons"??  It would be helpful to know the specifics, as well as to be notified when the episode will be restored.  For the absurd amount that I'm paying for Showtime, this is unacceptable.

Showtime asked us to pull the episode due to a legal issue and has likely pulled it from all cable providers.  I don't know the exact reason in this instance, but sometimes that can be due to content in the episode that wasn't licensed, like an image or song.  We'll post a replacement as soon as it is made available.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

 

Please contact Showtime if you have any further questions on why it was removed.

 

Thanks,

Re: Weeds - Season 8 Episode 5 is Missing

Wow. I wish I'd thought of coming here sooner. I've just spent almost 2 hours with comcast, first with a 'live chat' rep who wanted me to make an appt to fix the cable box (and who couldn't answer why the eppy was also missing online) and then a long time with a phone representative, who finally did tell me that it was Showtime's problem and that they would 'escalate' the inquiry. Clearly neither of them had any easily accessible info that there is a legal problem with this episode, nor did the two folks I talked to earlier this week. Sheesh. This is so infuriating; I want to know who Justin Kirk saw on the security cam at the end of Eppy 4 without having to skip to #6. Do folks think this will get rectified by Showtime and that a revised episode of #5 will eventually appear online, or do we just have to wait for the dvd release? Thanks.

It would have been helpful if the On Demand Guide did not show episode 4 twice.  This makes it look like a simple mistake.  The guide should state, at the location of episode 5, what the reality of the problem actually is - so that people are not wasting their time.  I can't believe this has been going on for weeks and still people have to waste time digging to find out exactly what the deal is.  Unacceptable.

I agree. Showtime needs to edit this episode so it's legal problems are addresses and then post it on On-Demand ASAP. I am a paying viewer and a big fan and this is just not acceptable!
