Ok, who else is loving "Will Trent"?

I've read most of the books which are great. I didn't picture him like the actor, but the show is really good.

Good news for crime drama lovers

I hear there's a new season of Vera coming. Yea!
Also new episodes of Murdoch Mysteries in February. And, according to the Graham Norton show, James Norton is returning in Happy Valley.

We are moving mom to a care facility

On Thursday. Been bedridden since June after getting covid. We've had full time care giving in the home at $12,000/ month.
She wants to get out of bed, and who can blame her. But caregiver and I can't manage it. A family friend owns a facility and a room came up. At only $6000/month, we grabbed it. Told caregiver yesterday which broke my heart; she's almost family at this point.
Mom doesn't know yet, and that's another challenge.
Thank goodness I recorded It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World yesterday on our local pbs station. It's giving me some comic relief between all the crying.

Need help with smart tv that can no longer access internet

The family has decided 99 yr old mom needs more care than I and fulltime caregiver can give her at home. She has been bedridden since she got covid 6 months ago. So we are moving her to a facility owned by a family friend. I want to move the tv I have now to her room. Problem is it's a Samsung that lost its ability to connect to internet. (AT&T did a diagnostic test and its the tv, not the connection.)
I called AT &T about getting service at new location. I don't want Direct TV, so they said the tv can be used with a Roku or something similar and must accept apps. I understand Roku can work without internet. But, can the "unsmart" tv accept apps? I don't think so. When I try the Smart Hub thing it won't do anything.
Any suggestions?
I suppose I could go ahead with Direct tv, I just don't like the dish thing.
Thanks for any advice.
