Day Break for free

ABC aired a pretty good detective-with-a-scifi-twist show back in November, but just after 4-5 episodes they took it off the air. The show was called “Day Break” and it was about a detective, Brett Hopper, who was wrongfully accused for murder. The twist is that the day that was accused for murder, was kept repeating. He was living the same day over and over again, and each time he was getting more clues as to what’s going on behind the murder.

Now ABC has posted all 13 episodes online, so you can watch the show from start to finish (good quality). The catch? You must have a US-based IP address, or their player won’t serve the content. Apparently some countries will show all 13 episodes and so ABC had to impose that restriction.

They’re on [edited out] via screen recorder.

I managed to [edited out] some of the .flv files directly, but almost couldn’t play them until I found a good codec. It may have had something to do with the software I used, who knows.

This is the admin speaking...

Sorry Mike, I had to edit out some of the information because of the DMCA. Let’s keep it legal.

I seriously doubt you have anything to worry about, in fact I’m sure of it.

Are you looking out for me then ?

Well, I am a guest in this country. If a break a law (or if the court decides that I did just because I am the host of this blog), there is a good chance that I would be asked to leave the country and destroy my life and my husband’s. If an American gets accused of the same thing, he’ll probably get 10 days of community service and that would be it. Since 9/11 is easier/cheaper to simply extradite alien workers rather than deal with them otherwise.

The stakes are higher for people with visas, and so I have to be careful. I would appreciate if you respect not the law (I don’t personally agree with the DMCA btw), but the security of my life.

I know that owners of blogs are not held responsible for the comments left by the public. That said, I don’t even want to risk getting you kicked out of the country, and I very much respect the security of your life.

It’s a sad day for me when people fear the US government, and it makes me kind of sick. We used to be the land of the free and the home of the brave. Now people will give up all of their right in the name of terrorism or to save “the children”. Let’s spy on everyone because the president says “trust me.” The city of Boston went running scared over “lite-brites” and arrested people over the fact that the devices had batteries and wires. My God, batteries and wires ! It must be a bomb disguised as a sign ! The government gladly takes orders from it’s corporate masters, like Disney and a dead Sonny “copyright is forever” Bono or religious nut jobs that think god put dinosaur fossils in the ground to test our faith.

Plus the fact that people like you have to worry about parking tickets and jaywalking. It’s just revolting.
