    Does anyone know if the new season of Weeds is somewhere on Roku?

    • Guest

      Weeds is listed on Crackle’s Roku channel. It won’t play (“Play” isn’t even an option), but it is listed there.

    “Wrath of the Titans” is a movie I am really looking forward to seeing; my movie club made up of co-works from Dish is doing a month of mythological movies. I have heard wonderful feedback regarding the first film; I can only imagine the ideas they would have for the second. My movie club helped me reach the conclusion that subscribing to Blockbuster @Home would be brilliant. Having the ability to live stream multiple movies on one subject is fantastic; exactly what we like to discuss in our get-togethers. As this month progresses, I hope to have some new movies to recommend that are equally beautiful in their mythological accuracy.
