I've been on Facebook for over 10 years now and have amassed enough posts that looking at Facebook memories seems like forever ago. I saw two today that show just how much the world has changed in a very short period of time.

This one is 9 years ago in 2011.

The Cape

Let's start off with "The Cape." It was as show on NBC in 2011 that bombed big time. It was a common man turns super hero story that sounded good, but was terrible. I never watched past the first episode.

Then there's the DVR. At the time being able to record two shows at once was pretty new. Today, DVRs can record in the neighborhood of six shows at once, but in the era of streaming, why bother? Back then Hulu was still free and you could watch episodes whenever you wanted, a week after they aired. Roku was just getting started, so most Hulu users watched on computers and laptops, like me.

Fast forward to 2020 and I get all my TV on my Roku. And recording two shows at once? Ha! YouTube TV let's you record an unlimited amount of shows at the same time and saves them for you for nine months.

Then there's my second Facebook memory from 2012 which makes me cringe when I read it today.

Jackie Matt Lauer

This was a rare case where both Meredith and Lori were going to be out, so I asked Jackie Ward of WCSH 6 to co-host. Jackie was awesome and I had a lot of fun that day. She's now at CBS in San Francisco, so she made the big time. I'm just glad she never did get a gig with Matt Lauer because we all know how that turned out. Yikes!
