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.
