Configuring Flexget, or Alternative

On ubuntu 13.04 (or latest, if this is still unanswered in a few months)

I'm having issues configuring flexget to download new TV shows, or even getting sample config.yml files to work. Anyone know of a decent configuring system to get it working? Or of a better solution to grab RSS feeds of torrents with smart filtering? (I used to use TVshowsapp, but that's not an option on this machine)
