    So does buying an AZ Fire or Roku device for the one-time fee make sense?
    From what I've heard once you've bought one of those devices you'd find plenty of uses for them well beyond TP on Showtime to justify the cost.

    How are you watching Netflix on your tv?

    Often just on my PC, or occasionally through my Samsung TV via PS3. Looked at the PS3 option, and it seems I'd have to buy PS3's monthly package as well. Not sure if I have the requisite Samsung TV to do the SmartTV option.

    You can get Showtime as an add-on through Hulu, which can be viewed through a webpage, I think.

    Go with the Roku over the Amazon TV Stick (or whatever it's called). The interface for the Amazon TV stick fails on mine way too often. I've not heard the same reports from people who own Roku devices.

    It's an 8.99 standalone fee per my understanding

    Is that through Showtime alone? Doesn't seem to be an option through the website...about 10 options through other services though.

    I think I may have the solution - the Android app option - but it will require me to watch directly on my Moto phone or Kindle Fire. Seems to be $10.99/month, regardless.

    Showtime anytime is their streaming service...will work on your comp like HBO Now does.

    Pretty sure showtime anytime is comparable to hbo go where you need a tv provider login. Showtime is the stand alone like HBO now. And everything I'm seeing is $11/mo

    You are right...Showtime only works if you have a Roku type device. (you dont need a login you can buy it for $10.99)

    Re: TV: The Golden Era Reborn

    So the most economical option is a Roku stick + the monthly Showtime package...

    Jensen and Jared are very good friends. Part of the joke is just what you said, they were playing the absolute worst version of themselves. Jensen's trailer had a 300 gallon aquarium. Jared's house looked like something Liberace would have lived in. It was completely ridiculous. The best parts of that episode were Misha though, effing hilarious.

    Another great moment in the show is when they are on a tour bus in Hollywood. The guide says "Now we are arriving at the lot that contains the Gilmore Girls set. Hang out and may get to meet some of the stars!" Jared gets uncomfortable and gets off the bus as fast as he can.

    Hah that is awesome! They are also good friends with Stephen Amell of Arrow so I would love if they did something with that as well

    (I havent watched Supernatural but keep meaning too)

    So I just learned Bobby Moynihan is leaving SNL, which means last night's season finale was the last of Drunk Uncle. Bummer.
