As of, like, right now, Amazon's Unbox service is offering free downloads of the very first episodes of four new NBC series: Bionic Woman, Chuck, Life and Journeyman. I can vouch for at least two of these shows, thus far.

If you're on dial-up, there's always the VHS tape you have of last season's Twenty Good Years.
