TV-over-the-internet-filter: What's a good source for finding TV shows online? Specifically, Ninja Warrior (originally titled Sasuke in Japan)?

I don't have a Tivo and am not usually at home during prime time, so I download my TV shows and watch them when convenient. I haven't had problems finding episodes of The Office and The Ultimate Fighter on Usenet and Demonoid (a torrent sharing site), but Ninja Warrior (from G4TV, which I don't receive, BTW, so I can't do an old-school VCR recording of it) is giving me trouble. I've found three episodes, and I've found a torrent for an episode recorded straight from Japanese TV, but that's about it.

Any tips? Where do you guys usually get your shows?

I've had no luck finding Sasuke or Viking via bittorrent sites, so I've watched it on YouTube.

Same BT site I always suggest, www.btjunkie.org, shows several seasons worth of full discs. Normal caveats apply regarding copyright and legality, of course.

Try alt.binaries.tv on usenet; I've never had a problem finding shows there. If you don't find it there, try requesting it in the group.

Oops, mistake. Several discs, not seasons. This is where some wicked googlefu is called upon. I can't give you links since they're probably pirated material, but try things like:
ninja warrior filetype:torrent
ninja warrior filetype:avi
ninja warrior filetype:wmv (etc etc etc)
sasuke filetype:wmv...you get the idea.

There are also various googlehax to search for accidentally shared files, such as www.g2p.org. Good luck!

You really can't beat tvnzb.com for downloading current shows from usenet, but I also like showdates.net's calender interface for keeping track of when my shows are on (until I get rss feeds working in SABnzbd, that is). Neither have Ninja Warrior though, sorry.

I get most shows through RSS (though not Sasuke). I get my RSS feeds from tvrss.net.
