Occasionally, I will watch hard to find shows there, but almost always regret doing so. It seems almost every video I try to watch is out of audio sync. It becomes quite aggravating.

Does anyone else ever experience this?

Yes, I watched the latest House the other night and it got progressively farther off until by the end it was about 10 seconds out of sync. Very annoying.

Why not watch it on Hulu? Perfect audio and HD video.

Hulu didn't have it yet... they tend to wait a week. But I agree, Hulu is better.

what bugs me (besides the audio sync issue at times) is that I can only get halfway through an hour show most of the time due to their greedy wanting money for member ship for unlimited watching times. "your ISP has used up its allowed time. please wait an hour to continue."

I watch dexter and true blood on watchtvsitcoms.com and it's aggravating to be stopped mid episode. Sometimes it even says that I have watched over an hour that day already when it's the first time I have watched anything.

annoying.

I wish more of their content was available in true HD resolution. Most of it's just "Hi Res" 480p. Not bad, but far from HD. Their HD gallery is surprisingly small, actually.

why not just download these episodes through torrents? is it "more" illegal to download and watch through bittorrent than using that shady website?

I agree with abbazabba, just d/l the episodes. A typical show 1 hour show is less than 400mb. With rapidshare et al, getting these shows without torrents is simple. I can't ever seem to get bit torrent to work anyway, it always takes like a day to d/l anything for me.
