Yahoo Screen: Community – 601 – “Ladders” Review

community-yahoo-screen

When Yahoo picked up Community, it seemed fitting that this weird little show would land in the most unlikely and random place. I hadn’t heard of Yahoo’s free video service, but I thought it was a smart marketing decision to pick up Community and boost Yahoo Screen’s numbers with one of sitcom television’s most outspoken and loyal fan bases.

All of which are available on a free app from a site that gave me my first email address almost two decades ago. Continue reading

TV Review: “American Crime” – Episode One (Pilot)

American Crime

Before watching the pilot episode of American Crime, I had a passing familiarity with it. I’d seen a preview and thought it looked interesting enough.
