Rar & Unrar

Ok so I transferred the latest prison break episode out of my download folder and am all excited to watch it and I see that its in Rar format, eh no bigge in windows I was able to use winRAR to get them decompressed so I could watch them so I right click and try to get them unrared with the existing app, Nope doesn't work WTF!!! I get pissed and read that the default program that comes with ubuntu doesn't support rar.....Shit..

After a bit of googling I find that theres a command line program that will do it yaaay!
1) sudo apt-get install unrar
2) apt-get install ark (GUI!)

Command line extracting :
unrar e filename or unrar x filename
