Nice of Showtime to post its first three episodes of the acclaimed showbiz comedy "Episodes" online for all. They're hoping to seduce new subscribers with this handy free preview of Matt LeBlanc's sneaky little gem. Other channels are looking to lure viewers with iTunes freebies for download. Available now: the "Lights Out" and "Fairly Legal" pilot episodes...
