Most people who watch the show get their DVD's or find alternative, heavily implied ways of watching them. However it seems like the show would be something many people would like.

Still wish they were on youtube.

Seems like something to add to it, even if it's not serious:

I know a page with links (and hosting) of the the whole show. You can just stream it there, so in some countries it's not illegal. Any mod that would care to give me a green or red light to post a link to the site?

Well show me then show me the evidence that violent videogames = school disasters.
And no tests that can mean anything or that a kid who went berserk just happen to have an x-box or a first person shooter game counts as evidence either.

AH. THE EPISODE IN QUESTION. Rather, the latest one to be aired.

They actually include the MRI tests where people like ol' Jackie Thompson kept/keep saying that playing violent video games will make someone emulate violent behavior. They just do that thing that makes them seem bankrupt and don't tell what the tests are, just that they're some tests and they've been important.

Most people who choose to do research know by now that this sort of thing is BS. Perhaps they needed to see what a kid who plays video games would actually do with a gun. (Protip: He cries. There's Jackie's monsters. :facepalm: )
