The Roku


I have liked  this show very much on those occasions when I have managed to turn the television  on at the right time.  Now, with my ROKU box set up and working, I have been able to watch it from the first episode.  I have watched the first six episodes.  Even though I liked what I watched, it makes so much more sense going in order.


The other show I have started watching in Mad Men.

I missed the whole first season.  I watched the rest of it only sporadically.


It used to be that if I liked a TV show I knew when it was on and made a point to watch it.  These days it is more…I think I’ll take a break and watch some TV.  I am enjoying being able to pick something I want to watch rather than flicking through channels and then deciding to have a snack instead.

So I give my ROKU box a thumb’s up.


  1. Yeah, that's my next venture into the technological frontier -- a Roku or Tivo or whatever. Would be great to catch these shows, and put them aside for when you want to watch them.

    I'm a "Mad Men" fan, and B will usually watch along with me. She's a Downton Abbey fan, and I'll usually watch along with her. Between the two of us, we probably watch too much TV!

  2. I have no idea what ROKU is. Is it a recording system like DVR or on online device?

  3. Good for you for trying something new. I have been thinking of getting one of these Roku devices. I love the two shows. Have fun!


  4. I also like Downtown Abbey. Have never watched Mad Men. And am not exactly sure what ROKU is... but am glad you are enjoying yours.

  5. So glad to hear you like your Roku! Which one did you get? I am still sitting on the fence about getting one but I am starting to get closer to taking the leap to get one and cutting the cable!

  6. Oh, I love Downton Abbey. I also really like Sherlock.


I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
