Looked fine on my TiVo. But yes, like with all streaming services it's very hard to just jump back a little.

I have no issues on my Roku with rewinding on Netflix, Amazon, HBO Go, or Showtime Anytime. FXNow isn't the greatest, either, but it's usable. But when I tried to do a quick rewind on Yahoo Screen, the entire screen went blank and I was given what I can only assume to be a progress bar, but no indication of what was happening or what it was doing. When I pushed play, I was in the middle of the next episode (the one I hadn't watched yet), and I had no way of getting back to my original scene. Finally I had to just close out of it entirely and relaunch Yahoo Screen, but when I did that it started auto-playing the first episode from the beginning. Not sure why it did that, no other Roku app autoplays simply by launching. I was also dealing with multiple crashes and screen freezes that could only be solved by hitting home and re-entering the video. The app ran so badly that I was unable to finish the second episode at all, and went to the Android app on my tablet, which also ran buggy. Yahoo Screen has a long way to go to be as user-friendly as Netflix and Youtube.

I too found the Yahoo Screen service basically unwatchable on my HTPC with FireFox. Pretty poor quality even with plenty of bandwidth available on my end -- and it was also very choppy. Sooooo - I had to find an "alternate source" and it was smooth "sailing" after that. I'll probably load them up on a spare puter and let them play in another room just so they get the hits for their audience metrics... maybe a few times as I'd hate for them to drop the show because folks can't watch it due to crappy player quality.

I enjoyed all three episodes so far and find the end vignettes to be a quirky yet funny alternative to Troy and Abed in the Morning endings of the good old days.

Yikes. This show is terrible now. Not even in the same sport as the first three seasons. So long, Community. You died slow death.

I disagree wholeheartedly ... it's different yes -- but still streets ahead of any number of comedy shows on TV these days. I'll still be watching until they turn out the lights.

I still don't believe the Dean is not gay LOL... he's 2/7's (whatever that means)

IDK but the Karate Kid play was awesome, I even shed a tear...

If the Dean is not gay - neither was Liberace. Loved the GayDean song and montage -- pausing the newspapers revealed a lot of detailed writing in the stories.

I've been half-heartedly watching this season every other week and I think it's been fairly poor. Hardly anyone involved seems to really want to be there, Paget Brewster has almost nothing to do and the whole thing feels cheaply done. There's a massive chemistry gap now with all the regulars who have left.

Jim Rash has been the MVP for me. He still seems to be giving the Dean his best shot. For anyone not keeping up the new season's paintball episode is now live. "Modern Espionage" is not as good as the previous iterations but I think it's the best episode of the season. Worth watching for Dean in the elevator.

As Annie once said I think we've gone past the point of "diminishing returbbbbbbbbubbububb" a long time ago.

I basically watch it for Annie now. Although the episode with Nic Cage I spat my soda out my nose when he did that. It was one of the most hilarious things I've seen on TV in years.

Last week's paintball episode did the series justice and was a worthy follow up to Modern Warfare and the Fistfull of Paintballs pastiches! But I think this week's Wedding Videography was probably one of the best Community episodes of the series. It had so many quick hit jokes that it warrants a repeat viewing, which I will be doing shortly!

Yahoo is a crappy web site, so Screen's poor implementation is no surprise. Maybe because I was never that big a fan of either the show or actors, the 1st 3 eps seem on a par with earlier seasons, and cast changes don't bother me. I thought Ep 3 was pretty funny, between the dean's text flirtation with "Jeff" and the unmistakeably Clintonesque smear campaign against the dog...

Who knew "flammable" and "inflammable" mean the same thing???

As finales go that was one of the best of the series, even if it's meta-ness was too overt and it reminded me of Chaos Theory. There were some funny pitches and it was good to see Shirley again. Jim Rash brings it as always so his naked appearances were always somewhat funny as were his reactions.

The commercial was well done too and just when it started to get too dark Dan Harmon chimed in with a funny summary of the last six years.

It provided a good emotional closure that last season did not and I would prefer a movie version than another season. I think the show has said all it can to sustain 13 more episodes and unless they want to keep undermining every sincere finale they need to finally say stop.

I hate they want to pair my sweet Annie with that Jerkf, loved the episode and Shirley... and they couldn't get Donald Glover for one scene? maybe some Chavy Chase one with a ghost story?

So confirmed or joke: Chang is gay, the Dean will transgender and Frankie is a lesbian?

Chang has already transgendered, the dean is a lesbian, and Frankie is gay.

That was fan service, and I think it was dealt with perfectly.

Another message board pointed out that this season ends where Jeff wanted the first episode to end... with him and Britta (albeit, just friends now). All the remaining members of the original study group are gone. And the hug Jeff gave Abed was gratitude, because without Abed putting the study group together, none of those friendships wold have happened. The show has come full circle. I don't feel a season 7 would be necessary at this point, but I'd keep watching if there was one!

If they did make a movie, I think a whole movie about paintball would be the perfect story... plenty of ways to translate Community and paintball to the size and scope of the big screen. Just have to think of a genre they haven't parodied yet! Maybe disaster movies?
