Yes you can all you have to do is buy the TV show and then hook up your ipad. It should automatcly start syncing.

You can transfer one or both. Limited by storage space on the iPad.
An iPad is not a backup drive. Why don't you get a backup drive and systematically backup your computer? Then you need not worry about accidental or intentional damage to the computer's hard drive.

So I can sync both HD and SD versions to the iPad? How do I tell iTunes I want to do that?
Also, how can I tell how much space I will need? iTunes doesn't say how many GB's of space this show will need.
The reason I don't use an external HD for this is this: I just don't have enough stuff that I need to back up. What I do have, easily fits in my free Dropbox folder. With that, PodWorks, and a fresh OSX install, I can easily reconstruct my setup in a short time.

Rename the files. Put an "SD" or "HD" at the end of the filename so you can easily identify which is which.
Look at the file sizes in the Finder. That's how much space is needed. If each SD file is 50 MBs and each HD file is 150 MBs, then each show requires 200 MBs of storage space. Ten shows would use 2 GBs. Of course this is just an example since I don't know how big the files actually are.
Do you not have a backup drive for your computer? If you don't then you are angling for problems. But that's your choice.
