    Top Gear season 8: download single episodes?

    Since the recent update to Top Gear season 8, all the torrent links from single episodes link to the 5.5 GB file for the whole season. I only want one episode, is it still possible to download it separately?

    Indeed - you can do it in your torrent program. Just tell it to not download the files you don't want.

    How do you do that? I use the BitTorrent client.

    I haven't used that client, but I believe it's the same as uTorrent, in which case you select the torrent, then select the Files tab which will list the files in the torrent. Right-click on the files you don't want and select 'Don't Download':

    Hmm, when I do that I can only choose between 'Download first' and 'Download normally'. Guess I'll just select 'Download first' for the episode I want and then cancel the download when it's done.

    It seems you have a lot more options in µTorrent, maybe it's time I switched programs

    Thanks for your help!

    If you are using the original Bittorrent client (older than version 6) - then I recommend switching to uTorrent asap. You'll find it much easier.

    +1 for switching to uTorrent. You'll thank us later.

    There is no replacement for displacement.

    ... I ask Herb Helbig, vehicle synthesis manager for SRT and a member of the original Team Viper development group since day one, if they'd ever thought of adding traction control. "It comes with two," he says, pointing at my feet. "Learn to use them." Got it.

    I know this thread is old but I was wondering if anyone here would have the Season 8 on them still? I'm trying to watch the whole series but I can't find season 8 anywhere.

    Any help?
