Like so many people, I fell in love with home video as soon as I saw it. Yes, I loved all the movies it opened up to me, but I was also a big TV fan and the thought that I could OWN a complete TV series just about made me giddy. It would cause me to save my money to buy things like Star Trek and The Twilight Zone and would eventually drive me to get a job in a video store to help support my habit.
I never did send away for a series, I never had a dependable income stream, but commercials like this would spur me on and cause me to hoard blank tapes and to look in bargain bins for episodes.
