Roll your own reruns

Last week’s season finale of The West Wing was on smack dab in the middle of game 6 of the Timberwolves/Kings series. I opted to watch the game instead of the Wing. Of course, since NBC wants to make their media artificially scarce, the episode wasn’t replayed later in the evening nor will it until later in the summer (if you haven’t seen it, it’s new to you!). This weekend, I found a torrent for the finale…without commercials and in letterbox no less. A couple hours of downloading later and voila, my own personal rerun.
