I don't know what I was doing wrong but I got ads during both episodes. It was like Hulu. I watched on the computer

I didn't get any ads on the 360 app.

I got ads while trying to watch ep. 1 but Firefox crashed twice on me so I gave up on it. Will try again later.

I got a few ads watching on my computer. I enjoyed the first episode more then the second.

First episode:

Spoiler:
Loved the cameo by Shirley at the end. Queue folks complaining about how she had time to film that despite her ailing father. The speakeasy and montage stuff were a little TOO self aware, but they played it off well. Liked Chang at the beginning during the spelling of c-h-a-n-g-e too.


Second episode:

Spoiler:
Didn't really feel to whole Britta parents thing at all, but liked her stealing the bike from the kid. The VR stuff seems weird to be making fun of; I know they played off the fad from the early 90's or whatever, but the fact that VR is being a big deal again recently made it a little weird to me.

It's ad supported. Got ads on my desktop and later on my iPad.

No ads for me on my AppleTV. It did buffer a few times during episode one, but then caught up and played great.

You need gold for the 360 app right?

Because Yahoo hasn't made the app yet.

Yahoo Screen's app making ability is pretty terrible. I've made better Roku apps than what they have available.

I used firefox and was not impressed, there were errors after every commercial break. Hopefully the 360 app will be a better experience.

Ditto and Ditto. Flash and Firefox have had major issues for me since November and version 35+.

I specifically looked for the app on my Tivo and didn't find it. Hopefully it will show up before next Tuesday.

First episode was ok, second one was better. I was expecting post-Troy season 5 quality and that's what we got.

The VR stuff was pretty funny but the Britta's parents thing fell flat. Though the "Jimmy Fallon Syndrome" joke was pretty funny.

I didn't miss Shirley but the show sorely misses Troy.

Watched the first ep. Way too self aware for me now. Didn't bother with ep 2. Just not for me.

Yeah, they tone down the self aware after the "we're acknowledging and setting everything back up"-ness of the first ep.

I had no commercials with the 360 app - but it was hard to find.

The search functionality on the 360 did not work - when I searched under "Y" only 'youtube' would come up, and I could not find yahoo screen under video apps, it was under "other apps" (that is where I found it).

Once it was installed the picture was great.

I only watched the first episode - good to see everyone back together and I was laughing. I kind of like the self aware / playing up to their strengths bits (i'm a sucker for montages).

I have the Yahoo Screen app on my TV (Vizio) but am only seeing clips of SNL and the like. Anyone been able to access that way? There's no search function, just a list and categories (and its not under Comedy).

On the 360 - They had it under featured or was just on the main screen. I do remember going to shows or something and not seeing it .. so I went back to the main page and hit 'enter' on the community clip that was playing
