    A network over in the UK has been airing the final few Eli Stone episodes that have so far not been shown in the US. There have been two on so far and both HD and standard def versions are available via torrent and newsgroups.

    The two unaired eps, that would be #10 and #11?

    I didn't know if it was allowed or not to mention that on here. But hey, I've watched them. Still a great show! Hope it gives us some closure! Too bad ABC apparently can't seem to get them back on the air!

    Those would be the numbers to look for.

    The episode titles are:
    2x10 - Sonoma
    2x11 - Mortal Kombat

    The file name that I found for this week was eli.stone.s02e11.hdtv-bia, I already watched and deleted the one from last week. This is for the standard def version. There are also hd rips that are about 1.2GB that are out as well.

    Does anyone know if the captioning info survives torrent?

    If it's in the original file, yes it survives. The torrent is just an exact copy of the file uploaded.

    In my experience it usually doesn't. I've tried enabling it on torrents, but it's never worked for me. Maybe I'm not getting the original, Peter. Hulu DOES include captioning.

    Then the original file that's torrented (that's what I mean by original file, not the orignal file that Hulu has) doesn't have the captioning. The captioning is lost when capturing from Hulu (or where ever the file is from). The file isn't changed at all in the torrent process, as far as I'm aware.

    I think the torrents are generally just video files made from DVR recordings, but they only include the video and audio streams, and not the extra information like the CC. I've never once had CC work on a torrent that I've transferred to my TV to watch.

    Did these two episodes air on SciFi? I downloaded the HD versions and they have the SciFi HD bug on them in the upper right, throughout the whole episode. Kind of irritating.

    Yeah, they're from the UK Sci-Fi channel.

    Unfortunately, captioning never survives transcoding. While it is possible to rip captions/subtitles from the original file, the scene never bothers with that (except with DVDRips sometimes).

    Do these eps wrap anything up?

    There are EPs 02x13 and 02x13. Are they going to be shown on SciFi UK?
