    They can't be censoring because of violence as the Skin and Bones episode also involved cooking parts of someone and eating it!!

    Eh.. what was this about? Why didn't the author finish the story with something like " ..then the doorbell rang and a hot pizza delivery boy and his mom who had just won stripper of the year asked if they could come in and give free pizza and a show, and then a ride back to town in their stretch pizza delivery limousine"?

    I think what Rose means by censoring is the not showing the 5 "missing" episodes. The one I watched last night, The Eater, about a serial killer who eats his victims, is pretty brutal. In one scene it shows him cutting off a woman's tongue, cooking it and eating it. This may very well be something that C5 don't want to show and have opted not to air this episode, along with any others they deem to graphic. It could be just a genuine mistake though, maybe a typo, maybe the researcher made a mistake in thinking there was only 8 episodes, maybe 8 was all they could get the rights to show. Unless someone from C5 posts and tells us, it's unlikely we will find out why. I got the dvd of all 13 episodes for £11 (approx 14 euros/17USD) so if they don't show the "missing" episodes you can buy them relatively cheaply.

    Unlike the other series, like CSI, NCIS etc there is no real progression in this one so they can be shown out of order. Just because they are showing them out of sync with the way they were broadcast elsewhere does not mean they are censoring anything Rose.

    Well here's the full list of episodes according to the back of the dvd box I have. 1. The Sacrifice 2. Spooked 3. The Family Man 4. In Sickness And In Health 5. Eater 6. New Years Day 7. Community 8. Skin And Bones 9. Something With Bite 10. Chance 11. Spirit Box 12. Echoes 13. The Circle Maybe this will help the C5 team track down any missing episodes. I watched episode 5, The Eater last night and it was very good. Hope this is one of the episodes they show so the rest of you can see it :D

    yeah i'd mentioned this on the other episodes comments ... it doesn't matter what order we see them in but i would like to see them all ..... all 13 that is!! There is a great article on IMDB that ranks the episodes from best to worst and this one was ranked 9th so they obviously aren't just showing the better ones!

    According to the synopsis of the series this is an 8 part horror series. I liked it so much from the first 3 episodes that I went and purchased the dvd which arrived in the post this morning. Series 1 has 13 episodes over the 3 dvd set, not 8 like you have stated. I'm not sure which episodes you have missed but you have shown episodes 1 (The sacrifice), 4 (In sickness and in health) and episode 8 (Skin and bones) so far and The circle is listed as episode 13 in this set. I'm curious if there is a reason you won't be showing the other 5 episodes or has someone made a mistake in your research?
