Can I watch a completed episode before the entire torrent is downloaded?

I am downloading the first part of season 4 and the first 2 episodes seem to be completely downloaded so I tried to watch "the trip" part one using divx and it gets about 20 seconds in and gets stuck. It just stutters and wont go any further. Did I mess up by trying to watch before the entire torrent was finished?

Yes and no.

I've had some success, but mostly at 90+% Usually not worth it.

If you use a program like Azureus to download your files, you can prioritise certain files that make up the torrent.

So if you're downloading a whole season in one torrent, you can watch a particular episode before you've downloaded the lot.

Otherwise, you'll be lucky if you just skip certain bits .. most media players aren't that forgiving when handling corrupted files.
