Syntax for grabbing all episodes of the new season of Celebrity Master Chef

Boy, the hypocrisy here is stunning.  The BBC allows time-limited downloads, but does NOT allow downloads without an expiration date.  Every single license payer here is violating BBC's terms of service by using GiP to download files that do not expire.  Yet heaven forbid someone from outside the UK violate those same terms of service.  Plus, every US participant that has ever spoken up has observed they'd happily pay the license fee if they could.  Hell, I tried to work out an arrangement to pretend to live in an apartment on somebody's property so I could have an address and pay the license fee, just to contribute my fair share, but the fellow decided not to follow through.  I didn't blame him for wanting to avoid any impropriety, but you holier-than-thou types really suck.  People in glass houses...
