Crackle: It’s On

If you love classic TV and don’t want to pay for it, check out Crackle.

Crackle is a free streaming service owned by Sony. It launched in 2007 and you can watch it online, on video game consoles, smart TVs and other devices.

I choose to watch Crackle on my Roku and really enjoy it. Sure, you have to endure a few commercials but it’s no biggie. They have a decent selection of movies, along with classic TV shows (All In The Family, Barney Miller, Bewitched, Good Times, I Dream of Jeannie, The Prisoner, Sanford & Son).

Crackle serves up a number of more recent shows too, including Rescue Me, Seinfeld and The Shield. They also have Jerry Seinfeld’s original series Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.

CICGC is a fun short-form series where Jerry drives a classic car to pick up one of his comedian friends. They stop for coffee and a heaping helping of yucks. So far he’s met with former Seinfeld alums Larry David and Michael Richards, along with late night rivals David Letterman and Jay Leno. I particularly enjoyed his meetings with classic TV/movie legends Mel Brooks, Carl Reiner and Don Rickles.

Give Crackle a try and see what you think.
