Q. When citing a specific episode of a TV series that I watched on the internet, do I need to include "Retrieved from..." on my reference page? (APA)


Yes, whenever you retrieve a source online, you should include the "Retrieved from" statement at the end of the reference.

If, for example, you watched the episode on Hulu, you would add the retrieval statement to the end like this:

Wendy, S. W. (Writer), & Martian, I. R. (Director). (1986). The rising angel and the falling ape [Television series episode]. In D. Dude (Producer), Creatures and monsters. Los Angeles, CA: Belarus Studios.  Retrieved from www.hulu.com.

For other APA questions, see the APA Help guide.
