I love this show but I bought every season available only to find out I am missing at least two episodes from season 3 I noticed this when I watched a back to the bar episode in season 6 and realized I hadn’t watched that episode recently even though I was binge watching the series so upon further investigation I found that in fact two episodes in season 3 were in fact missing and don’t exist on Google anywhere but they are included on iTunes! Do explain this google how do have incomplete seasons??
