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.
