Episode 3 of "Instinct" (CBS, 04/01/2018, titled "Secrets and Lies" is missing from On Demand.
I observed this on both "classic" and X1 systems, and it is absent in both HD and SD.
Usually CBS is pretty good about getting things right; hopefully you can get them to put it up well before the May 5th date it would be expected to expire.
Thanks in advance!
Hi garryreeves & CactusThorn -- Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I review this show and did find that episode 3 is not showing. I'll forward this to our On Demand support team to address.
Hi garryreeves & CactusThorn - Thanks for your patience. We did hear back regarding Instinct, Episode 3. In this case, it seems the network asked for the episode to be removed. I'm sorry you weren't able to catch it!
Garryreeves - would you mind checking for the other episodes and updating me if they are still not available?
garryreeves -- We'll have our On Demand support team look at those episodes. Can you tell us what the error message is that pops up when you're trying to view On Demand?
Curious as to why it might have been pulled, I googled for "Instinct episode 3".
Interesting... the "Instinct" episode appears to have been pulled due to plagiarism issues. Apparently, the plot extremely closely follows that of a "Bones" episode called "The Plain in the Prodigy" from a few years back, and even contains some identical throwaway jokes and lines ("Nice quilt though, huh?" for example).. The showrunner has apologized. I suspect it's now gone for good, even from pay sites.
Thanks to ComcastZach for trying to obtain it, though.
CactusThorn -- You're welcome. We'll always try to do what we can to have episodes available in On Demand. Very crazy situation with that episode.
