Find out why

The Machine comes up with the social security number of a 14-year-old boy called Darren. As Finch sets about repairing the damage caused by the mysterious hacker ‘Root’, Reese goes to visit Darren, only to find his apartment crawling with police. They are investigating the murder of Darren’s brother Travis, shot a week ago by members of a gang.

Reese hooks up with Detective Carter, who tells him that Travis stood up for a waitress who was being abused by the gang. It seems that they came back to exact their revenge. Darren was taken into care, but has subsequently absconded. Reese presumes that Darren must be their next target as he can identify the killers...

    The stream is very poor on almost everything I watch on DemandFive. I'm running a quad-core, 4GB memory and 1GB graphics with a 25Mbps connection - it's nothing going wrong at my end! I can stream HD from the BBC iPlayer no problem, so what's going on?

    It worked ok last week, but this week the ads kept blacking out - sound only, or sometimes nothing at all. Afterwards the programme won't load at all. It VERY irritating.

    Really like the episode. For those unable to view the video, try updating Adobe Flash and clearing the previous flash cache. Sometimes the speed of the RAM and the processor factor in as to how fast the video can be processed. Flash player has a rather heavy overhead so make sure you have a system capable before complaining about the player/service.

    Why is it that the only shows on 5 on demand on BT Vision are the bad ones. Why not show the programmes that people actually want to watch.

    Didn''t work first time for me - it took about four tries to get past the initial ads. Then the lip synching got unsynched. So, I tried putting on the subtitles and they were about 30 seconds ahead., Then it started halting randomly and finally launched into the closing ads in mid-sentence. Ch 5, I love the show but please, please don't bid for the next series. Just leave it to the beeb or C4.
