    I looked at the media info for the downloads and compared episode 1 and episode 3. Episode 1 is 00:59:18 length and Episode 3 is 00:46:19 so that's one reason for Episode 3 being a smaller file size. If I'm reading the metadata correctly, it indicates both files were encoded with the same encoder settings of 20000 max VBR so the size difference is most likely based on the video content not having as much action or some other video differences that don't require as much data to display the movie with the same quality setting?

    Codec ID : avc1
    Codec ID/Info : Advanced Video Coding
    Duration : 46 min 19 s
    Bit rate mode : Variable
    Bit rate : 1 685 kb/s
    Maximum bit rate : 20.0 Mb/s

    Edit: Actually episode 3 has crf=20.0 and Episode 1 has crf=16.0 so they did adjust the quality between the two episodes when they created them. I'm guessing that is the highest quality available from the provider but log attached for episode 3.
