What was considered quite good way back when could look like crap compared to what we have now if we could actually revisit the past.
My brother and I shared an apartment for a while, and I got him accustomed to seeing Laserdisc, thanks to a rental store. On one occasion we rented a VHS from a closer store. I still remember the sound of disgust in his voice, "Ugh! What's wrong with your machine?"

I explained that nothing was wrong. VHS looked like that. He had grown accustomed to something better. (As a video repair tech, my equipment is typically in very good condition.)
"No, I better not look. I just might be in there."
