So I went onto DF to watch Episode 47 and the series is gone. No trace of it anywhere on DF. And no explanation. This just happened in the last day or so, apparently. I do want to finish this off before we move on to God of War...so just bear with me a bit. If I can't get an answer from DF I'll look for some other source with subtitles to watch the final five episodes.
p.s. To be clear, the summary page for the series is there and the reviews are still there, just no episodes and no indication that there were any available.
I submitted a question through DF's website about EOS and hopefully will get an answer soon. For now I went ahead and watched Episode 47 anyway, and will post the usual info for it soon. Googled around and found the series on Dramanice.
Just to be clear, I definitely do not advocate watching these shows on unlicensed sites. (Actually I'm not sure if Dramanice is licensed for EOS or not but I tend to think it's not.) Creators and producers should be paid for their work. But it also is wrong to yank away a series from viewers with no warning and without giving them a chance to finish watching it. So what's the right thing to do, well who knows. I guess everybody has to make up their own mind.
p.s. The same thing happened during Iron Empress, when KBS abruptly disappeared from Chicago with ten episodes or so unaired. Remember those bad old days? Ugh.
Ex-ACT-ly. THANK you. If they know they're going to lose the rights to a series, they should give enough advance notice for their customers to get through the remaining episodes if they're in the middle of watching it. That's the proper way to treat customers.
Will wait to see what the explanation is but if it's a previously known expiration date for streaming rights, then I definitely intend to give somebody at DF an earful about it.
So after 19 days I get this response from a DramaFever customer service person:
"We are working to get this fixed. We hope to have updates very soon and will alert you when the issue has been resolved. Sorry about that!"
Fixed? Like a software malfunction? No, it was deliberately removed for some reason; how about telling us the real reason instead of shoveling the corporate doubletalk?
This isn't over. I was getting ready to send letters to the two guys who run DF (no other way to get to them except regular mail, apparently) and in another month or so I'll still do so if there's no further information.
