You tried to destroy it once before, Commodore.

Yeah, another home run.

I'm looking at some of the stuff on Hickey's bulletin board. Apart from the Ripper case clippings, it looks like there's a divorce decree there (at least there's some stuff about child support, plaintiff: "Mrs. Hickey") above a restraining order. Also, Hickey is overdrawn from "Boogatron Multifinancial" and his comic strip was rejected for syndication by "Boogatron Publishing".

I loved the picture of Richard Ayoade hanging in the background and that the computer's name was Boobatron.

Not Boobatron, Boogatron. A running joke for the props department, I think, because Hickey's bulletin board had a rejection letter from "Boogatron Publishing" and a final payment notice from "Boogatron Multifinancial".

I'm more worried about the region locking on all the previews. They promised to cut that poo poo out. :canada:

I'm sure Yahoo would love to stream it worldwide, but for various reasons, contracts, unions, other dumb rights issues, they probably can't, at least not right away.

I'm very aware of how convoluted international broadcast rights can get, but from everything I understand there are no rights issues at all with Community S6: Yahoo owns it worldwide lock stock and barrel.

I find it very irritating, not because it's going to be even a tiny inconvenience to me to watch the show, but because I want to reward Yahoo for doing this. I want to install their lovely app on my tablet and watch their stupid commercials. They did a good thing and I want to show my support so they'll continue to do good things, and their own dumb policies are blocking me.

Edit: yep, still no Yahoo Screen app in the Canadian Google Play store. Dicks.

Yeah, I just now saw this, in which the executive producers for Community season 6 confirmed that Yahoo does not have the international broadcast rights for season 6.

I just assumed that when Yahoo previously announced that it had secured worldwide rights to season 6 and was planning to use Community as showcase content for Yahoo Screen everywhere that they were telling the truth.
