1. You don't need a Facebook account to watch. Just type real world Bangkok or whatever and start watching.

2. They broke up the episodes in 3 as to keep people talking and then have the whole episode,24,28 minutes

3. I was able to use the web video caster app to watch on my smart TV. The subtitles would not appear for Mexico and Bangkok, but I also am not tech savvy so there could be an easy solution.
