    If you can find a torrent even with zero seeds, I've found that Downstorm well grab it eventually.

    Might take a month instead of 5 minutes though.

    I'm using https://gibinews.eu/en and they are pretty decent. Its only 3.5 euro for 1 month access. So its really cheap and has 1200 binary retention so its just as good as astraweb just cheaper. Ohh and it only offers 10 connections and no upload though but its still a good provider if you just want to download your stuff.

    I max my 4mb ine with them on my IS uncapped so I'm happy since its only like R36 a month.

    Another good provider is fastusenet.org

    But more than gibi but also very nice. I can vouch for these 2 usenet providers cause I use/d them both.

    I see usenet has all 6 seasons of futurama. I have a account at nzbsrus.com though but there is all season 1-6 its a bit old at +- 600 days but with a usenet provider like usenetserver,astraweb,fastusenet,gibinew,giganews, supernews all those you should be able to grab it.

    I just finished downloading seasons 1-5 -got it on tpb and downloaded to downstorm. Plenty of seeds, no issues. Weird that you're having issues with it :-/

    Use to use torrents a long time ago, but now never use torrents. Takes far too long and have to worry about seeding etc. Nzbs are the way to go

    I use both, depends what easier. Regular download via NZB (sickbeard) and other stuff via Torrent. Each has its place and use

    As others have said, I also use both. Torrents (through a torrent box) for old stuff (200+ days), and Usenet for everything else.
    ...IMHO.

    Torrents suck donkey balls. Weird how many people still use it.
