How do I find the staff reviews?

I'd like to form a better review style, and I've enjoyed  and learned  plenty from the TV staff reviews. I began to scroll down through the 6500ish review listings and my coffee went quickly cold. I tried using the search bar, to populate a list, but it returns with "no results found"

Is there a link or button around here that I'm not seeing?
thanks

They are under COMMUNITY>PUBLIC SNIPPETS.

Type: Professional Coverage
Sort by: Date Submitted

Two years of them, minus the months they weren't done.

I seem to be able to find snippets and mini-coverage. There are some bluecat reviews and reviews by members.
I'm guessing I can't find the staff reviews I'm looking for because I'm not yet a member.
I'll check it out next week when I change that status,
thanks

Robert was right, all of the mini-coverage and the previous regular coverage reports for Script of the Month finalists can be found in the Public Snippets listing under the type "Professional Coverage."  It may also be that some of the normal paid coverage our staff has done will show up in the profile "Talentville Staff" under their uploaded snippets, but we don't always post that coverage unless the authors want us to.

Yes Ben, I'm in search of staff reviews. It makes sense hat there aren't a ton of full coverage reviews there =some authors don't share that out.

In addition to the mini-coverages showing, Talentville also gives really good in-depth professional coverage.  I had one for a screenplay in February (not shown on the pro list) and the six pages were well worth the price I paid.

Yes Billie, that is exactly the stuff I want to read, in depth 6 page professional coverages...alongside the related script.  Is this the same professional coverage that one gets with the 170? dollar membership deal? or is that a mini coverage? 

What did you spend on your in depth pro coverage review?

I found some similar offers on other links for 500 bucka. I'm not rollin in the dough yet

I've had at least two dozen professionals review my eight screenplays and paid anywhere from $60 to $250 each.  Some were harsh and hurtful with not much good to say about them while others pointed out the good as well as the bad.  I now have my favorite readers who may not (and generally don't) give me a recommend but certainly give me some good pointers on where to make the screenplay better.

One of my screenplays here on TV is "Courtin' Annie."  Talentville did the six page review for it and it's posted as one of the reviews for that particular screenplay so you can read both the screenplay and review if you want. No, it isn't the mini coverage; it's more detailed.  Under "Community" is the General Store.  Click on that and it will give you the prices for their review - far more reasonable than $500.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

thanks Billie. I'll have to read your work and the review together soon. I have to fix my known story problems and get uploaded first.
Yes I want some good reviews too. Glad to know there are fine and affordable sources here in the TV.
Thanks again
