    I bought my first VCR in 1987 specifically to record TNG first run. I recorded every episode, two per tape. I even had most of TOS and Voyager recorded. All of it took up several boxes that filled the space under my bed. Twenty years later, when I had to move. I threw them all in the trash. By then I had most everything on DVD. I thought "What a waste of money". The only cool thing was all of the late 80's early 90's TV commercials that got recorded along with the episodes.

    It's amazing to think back to a time when buying a commercially produced VHS of a single episode for $13 at Suncoast seemed like a not-terrible deal. Now we can get entire seasons for under $30 on DVD! And they take up 1/25 of the space!

    I do wish I still had the commercials sometimes.

    The Menagerie, parts I and II, streamed on Netflix.

    A wonderful repurposing of the original pilot into TOS's only two-part episode.

    This is thirteen years ago..

    When I first bought a vcr for taping TOS in the early 80s, I usually paused during commercials, but occasionally they would slip through. Readers in the Kansas City area might remember those weirdass Boots Williams Ford commercials. And Ed Muscare, at Channel 41 as their horror movie host The Creeper, and a children's show host musically playing what he called the cat-o-phone. Muscare was later arrested on sex offender charges. There's a Wiki article on him, but you might have to hunt for it.

    I almost always edited out commercials when recording episodes of the different Trek series. Occasionally one might slip through or I'd catch the first second of an ad, but I was a ninja with those old Pause buttons. By the time Enterprise was on the air a decade ago I had it nailed down like a pro and could get rid of anything that wasn't opening or closing credits and story content. That's how I first noticed that ENT was three minutes shorter than the average TNG episode of a decade before (43 minutes, 30 seconds give or take versus the old TNG running time of about 46-1/2 minutes without commercials).

    I never get tired of this one. I do wonder how much more fondly it would've been remembered if the Genesis scenes had been shot on location instead of on a sound stage?
