How can I download the TV shows on Spike.com
I prefer to download a file, rather than playing the video and then capturing the video as it plays.
Note: I use Linux. If you have any advice for Linux users, that would be appreciated. But I'm open to hearing of Windows instructions too.

OP here. I'm using youtube-dl. Seems pretty simple to use. But don't know why it spilts up a video into segments.
Thank you, blezom.
I have a problem downloading subtitles.
I tried "youtube-dl --list-subs http://www.spike.com/episodes/pykcgc/the-joe-schmo-show-the-bounty-begins-season-1-ep-101", but youtube-dl just downloads the videos. I expected the command to list all available subtitles.
If you go to the URL in a web browser, you'll see that closed captions are an option.
youtube-dl does not detect the subtitles for this site. but I detected them for you.
so i use wine to operate SubtitleEdit in its portable version
with wine and SubtitleEdit you can convert .xml to .srt or .ass ect

Oh, so you can only download the video, separately the subtitle and after with a software you can insert them in the video. good reasoning.
