I had one friend who was also a big fan of Trek when I was growing up. At some point I started buying the original series on VHS and he started buying TNG. Whenever either of us picked up a new episode we would go to that person’s house and watch it. It was always a great time. My episodes came from the local Pathmark where for some reason they would put new episodes on the shelf once a month at cut rate prices. His episodes were delivered via Columbia House, which I imagine he might have ordered from an ad like this one I found recently. I was always jealous of the steady rate at which he acquired his collection. The video section at Pathmark was unpredictable (as unpredictable as my funds to get an episode), so some months I would miss episodes and those holes would persist until I fill them in with full price purchases from the local video store where I worked. Even with my employee discount the price was never as good as the Pathmark price.
