That's in ANH.  I was referring to RotJ.
I thought I was too. I was mistaken.

While  I may be late for this party, I might as well add my $0.02.

Nothing brings back those wistful memories of yesteryear like my old recordable VHS tapes, particularly old television shows I used to record on YTV (Canada's version of Nickelodeon) like the 90s Animated Spider-Man, X-Men, Beast Wars, the Mask, among others. Heck, I think there are some shows I recorded from from Fox Kids when it was finally added to our cable package in 1995 but the commercials grab my attention the most for some reason. Watching old advertisements for obscure movies like First Kid (a movie starring Sinbad as a Secret Service agent), Solo (starring Mario Van Peebles as a cyborg), and Car Pool (don't remember what that one was about) makes the 90s look like a different planet to me. Of course I could see the aforementioned television shows on Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, or on DVD butI will always have a soft spot for those old tapes.

It is worth mentioning that my family's old VCR is almost as old as I am (nearly thirty years) and it is still in working order.

I had a VCR/DVD combo. It was nice, but the VCR always tried to eat tapes.

It succeeded with Dogma. ;A;

If that counts as a hint then a truck crashing through your wall counts as subtle.

Ads and commercials are the best part about tapes. I really wish I'd gotten into recording more stuff off of TV.

Also, check out this bad boy. Too bad it's so God damned expensive.

Mostly I'm a DVD guy, but I'll still check out some VHS on occasion. And it's a good thing the libraries here still have some.

Libraries in my area still have VHS tapes, and a local video store still rents them!  I can only wonder how many people still pick up VHS rentals...

I'm never giving up my Star Wars VHS tapes. Never.

Me neither!  Even though my collection is the first Special Edition.  But, it earns coolness points for surviving a house fire.
