Sounds like a great way to introduce people to the series (although I think the first two episodes aren't nearly as good as some of the later ones).

Yeah, that's true, but the first two episodes are still great hooks.

Exactly my thought, although the Fix wasn't up in running back in 2005 when FMA first premiere. That said [AS] should of had episodes (even reruns of the latest episode) on the fix once it's started.

That's pretty much why I stopped watching so soon.
Didn't think I was missing much, but I guess I don't have an excuse to miss out now.

Dammit, [as fix] used to work on Macs, as long as you had the Flip4Mac plugin to play Windows Media. But now they're sniffing and booting Macs. And forging the user-agent doesn't work.

Bad [as]. Bad, bad [as]. No biscuit for you.

I'm pretty sure this is because of some recent deals [AS] made with Funimation. Monday, they posted on the Adult Swim boards saying they secured a deal with Funimation to get the Trinity Blood episodes on the Fix all week. And apparently Fullmetal Alchemist had been on the Fix since last Friday, so it is likely something to do with that deal they made.
