I feel you, Bro!!!When I got my first VCR, I was taping night and day: movies (and sitting there to edit out commercials with a wired pause remote), episodes of TV series I loved like The Andy Griffith Show and The Adventures of Superman, and all kinds of specials.
Tapes were expensive if you bought them separately ($15 a pop as I recall), so I bought them by the carton - 12 tapes for $9.99 each was the first box I bought, Prices began to go down over the first year, and by the time blank tapes could be found in drug stores, I didn't have to buy by the box any more. Yes, I taped on the slowest speed to start with to get the most use out of the few tapes I had, but as tape got cheaper, I could splurge and tape prized movies in SP.
