Enter the Roku. What is the Roku you might ask? I never heard of it until a few weeks ago when JaCk, (yes "JaCk" NOT "Jack") Copeland told me about it. It's the latest thingie you hook up to your TV. Using a wireless internet connection it allows you to watch practically anything imaginable on TV and much of it is FREE.
Do you know what a Pub D Hub is? I didn't. It is the Public Domain Hub on the Roku. It is one of several channels allowing me to live in the past. Who knew the 1950s tv show "I Married Joan" could still be seen in 2013? It's here on Roku! I always get a kick out of hearing the announcer proclaim "America's Favorite Comedy Show with America's Queen of Comedy Joan Davis." Joan who? Lucy doesn't have anything to worry about, but it's fun to watch Joan try to be another Lucy. Jim Backus aka Mr. Howell aka Mr. Magoo is also this series.
The Desilu Production of Our Miss Brooks starring Eve Arden is another great ancient find. Lots of Lucy alumni on the show and behind the scenes including Gale Gordon and Mary Jane Croft. It's on the Roku!
I have watched some Best of Groucho on the Roku, The Lucy Show, The Jack Benny Program, and Our Gang comedies. Lots of old movies are on the Roku as well from Bob Hope/Bing Crosby to Shirley Temple. There are lots of obscurities I never saw on my Dish Network package.I even watched "Rescue from Gilligan's Island." Hokey but lots of fun.
