Bump the thread and request a seed politely. Do that a couple times over a couple days and usually someone will seed it.

Stay on the torrent and bump the thread requesting a seeder. Don't forget that not everyone can seed 24/7. Some people turn their computers off at night, or they turn their torrents off during the day in order to work, or who knows why. Just because they are gone right now, doesn't mean they will stay gone. However, sometimes they ARE gone for good for any number of reasons. One thing you should make sure of is that when that torrent is going, you have allocated sufficient bandwidth to the download. Nobody likes trying to seed a torrent to someone who is also downloading five other shows and can only download at 10 kb/s which would take several days to complete a show.

People have sent me PMs to reseed in the past, and rather than do that, I simply mail them a copy of the cd or dvd. I'm sure many seeders would help you in that fashion. Good Luck!

another great option is to offer a mail trade... there's not enough hours in a day (or rather bandwidth) to download every last thing you are interested in, so trading shows by mail really helps to fill in the gaps quick.
