This. VHS is one of the worst medias ever. A significant improvement, even if they look poor compared to DVDs.

Plus, the Criterion Collection started on LDs. Lot of good stuff there.

I'm going to side with Ashley here - I wish we still had a VCR, because we've got so many fucking VHS tapes that we can't watch anymore because the VCR carked it and you can't buy new ones obviously.

Not a problem for stuff that's readily available on DVD, Blu-Ray etc, but what about all the family videos, taped shows, sports videos that came out years ago and were never re-released!

Goes without saying DVDs are miles better, and VHS sucked (rewinding? Quality eroding? Fuck that) but we had no alternative. No idea what laserdisc is.

Yeah, I hope you guys are just referring to VHS being a horrible media thanks to repeat decay, because obviously the format at its best is still being used today by professionals.

Only reason I keep my VCR around is because I find the commercials from 10-15 years ago when I used to actually use it are fucking hilarious. Labor Day sale at Nobody Beats the Wiz LOL.

I lost count of the amount of times I watched the 60s Batman film or Daffy Duck's Fantastic Island that we taped off the TV. I can still recall a few of the ads even though I haven't seen either in years.

OMFG F41L! Laserdisc is analog.

Remember kids: stay in school, don't do drugs, and hang the dj--not yourself!

Shouldn't you be shooting yourself with your musket or something?
