Default pill bug or cockroach?

Hi guys can anyone tell me what these are?
They keep coming from the drain or from the wood window sill in the shower.





I thought they where cockroaches but now someone says it's pill bugs.

They look like pill bugs. Just type "pill bug" into Google and you'll see.

There are lots of makes and models of Roaches, but those don't look like Pill Bugs either. The scales on the back don't look as uniform as a pill bugs. But then again, I'm no bug expert.

Def roly-polys. I thought everyone had those things around. They usually hide under rocks and stuff around here (east coast) Seems like they are pretty much everywhere.
