    I look forward to watching WSM every xmas. Any chance of being able to watch it this year. Or, by the other comments, do you just not care? Isn't there also anyway that if you've sat through the adverts once, when you continually have to re-start after stopping, that you don't have to sit through them again. As everytime I watch them I have to rush to the shops and my flat is now full of ipads and febreeze?

    I'd love to commentate on this! I'm much better informed than Dickinson, and much less irritating than Brice! Haha!

    That "will be available soon" is beginning to look embarrassing.

    Woops, that was something else! I meant, I'm looking forward to seeing ep2 on Thursday! But also, I missed ep1, so please please please get it up On Demand asap. Also as I will miss ep3. Love Strongman, with so much tosh on tv these days, is there really no more time or money to showcase this awesome sport?

    Great to see this back on proper TV, shame it was scheduled to clash with the soaps! How likely are us blokes to win the argument?! No matter I thought, I'll see it on On Demand. So where is it!!!!!

    Oh dear, I give up. Demand5....ha ha ha what a joke. Will you make it available before the series ends? Very soon eh....over two days? Iam glad you didn't say a couple of days as that would probably be next month!

    Still nothing? Really? Channel 5, this is embarrassing, the BBC would have had it up within hours, if not minutes. WSM has a large group of die hard fans, we will watch it else where if needs be.
