EPISODE 5 CORRUPTED!
NOVA is amazing and deserves 5 stars, but please fix the file! Ice Age Death Trap is corrupted!
I love NOVA and the shows are probably great. BUT....I bought this not realizing that I couldn't play it on my iPod. Not only does it take me FOREVER to download HD but it won't play on my iPod. Apparently you have to have the latest iPod or an iPhone to watch this other than on your computer. :( It would really be nice if we were given a choice. But I guess this is how Apple continues to profit by forcing people to buy the latest and greatest whether they want it or not.
