After 30 years, I have so many TV shows on videotape and DVD, I’m beginning to wonder if I’m a compulsive hoarder. LOL
I have dozens of VHS video recordings on tape that I haven’t watched in years, and some DVD sets I’ve never finished watching–yet I continue to collect and record old TV shows on DVD.
I think it probably all stems back to my pre-VCR childhood. A time where you could only watch a TV show on television once, and not see it again unless it was re-run. If I loved a show bad enough, there was always this yearning to watch it again and not being able to. That all changed when VCR’s became affordable.
Recently, I started recording the old soap opera, The Doctors. I enjoy watching the show daily now, but will I want to watch it all over again in a few years? Probably not, but I can’t help thinking that maybe I will.
I think I record stuff now, so I will always have it in my possession if I ever get a craving..
Nowadays, one can find almost anything on youtube. It may get...
