  1. I'm not seeing this show in iTunes for me as of Saturday the 6th at 8am ET. I don't know how long it takes to show up, but saw this post from my RSS Feed Reader yesterday when it was posted. Perhaps something to investigate, you can email me if you think it might be just me. 🙂

  2. Figured it out. Latest iTunes is HORRIBLE. Basically I've been saving 2MTL up for our next roadtrip and it stopped downloading them. Unlike in the old iTunes where it was PROMINENT that it had stopped downloading since I hadn't listened, this one is a TINY little exclamation point mixed in with a bunch of other ones. Grrrrr. Sorry about that Chip!

  3. I, too, was troubled by many of the same incongruities when I first watched the Christmas special. Bravo, Shannon, for pointing them out!
