    Anyone Heard of tvshows.org?

    Hello all,
    Last night i missed an episode of my favorite show "the Amazing race" And forgot to set the pvr to record it. I usually just use what i call "the bittorrent vcr" and grab it off of the net, but from the shows homepage, i found a link to tvshows.org. It is a paysite, and doesnt give a whole lot of information as to the legality (probably not, but then again, neither is allofmp3.com). Google tells me nothing about it, i cant find any reviews, etc, etc. But they are linked from a lot of well respected sites.
    It also looks like they have some sort of kazaa/bittorrent/emule client thing, so they arent generating their own content.
    Anyone know anything about this site?

    I wouldn't pay a dime for someone else to get the same content from BT or wherever.
    There are a TON of scam sites like this, selling stuff they got for free.
    There's even a scam site SELLING GB-PVR! (I'll look for the link).
    You can never have enough tuners!

    Most don't let you search and see that they in fact have it, so the scam starts there, because they want money first.

    Avoid, unless you can find a reputable review (cnet, etc).

    Thats what i was thinking. It reeks of scam.
    But the links from sites i trust threw me for a loop.

    I dont know if anyone has discovered this or not, but tvshows.org most likely IS bittorent! Their registration screen are completely identical. I thought i had be redirected to tvshows.org.
