    I've never seen an episode of anything go up so soon after being shown on TV. I have a season pass for The Office and once in a great while the show is ready to be downloaded by mid morning the next day, but I've seen it take as long as late the next night, over 24 hours after it had been shown on TV. Just be patient is my only advice, it will come.

    ok so the episode has shown up on the store, but it still wont download, when i click on the 'check purchases' in itunes it says that there are no new eps for download, and when i click on the 'click here' bit on itunes store to get new eps it doesn't do anything.

    what can i do?

    Just to confirm - it didn't automatically download while you were doing something else, did it? Isn't that how Season Passes work on iTunes?

    Also, make sure it isn't currently downloading, as it should have started automatically once you connected, and as such wouldn't show it as being available, right?

    The episode is titled "Flashes Before Your Eyes", correct? The only other thing I can think of is that your account was logged in on a different machine, and it downloaded there. Is that possible?

    Yeah, if it was downloaded already, you can't download it again. Seems like the most likely possibility.

    That or an ex-significant other is stealing your Lost episodes... :p
