Episodes will not play, Start and go to black screen

I have discovered that some episodes of NewsRadio (Season 2 epsodes 3 and 4) will not play They simply go to a black screen and nothing happens. I am trying to watch them ona PC and have had no issues with other titles or other streaming services. Im sure there must be more out there besides the 2 episodes I have run into so far.
