I'm going through some old tapes to see what I can destroy and what I want to keep, since I have most of these old movies, and less of the TV shows, on DVD. I'm looking through the old TV shows as a sadly interesting blast from the Past. Most drastic are the Simpson episodes from 1993. No annoying bug Logos. Great picture quality. Great sound. And best of all, hardly any commercials. Sigh... when did things start to change for the worse? If anything, I might keep these things to show any future kids I might have what TV Viewing was like when I was young .
