V the Miniseries on DVD

I was headed for the Redbox in my local Luckys when I saw this in a bargain DVD bin.

The complete V miniseries on DVD! Maybe I shouldn’t be so excited, but this triggers a child-like hang-up of mine. That’s the idea of being able to see something “whenever I want”. This might not seem like such a big deal to the YouTube/Hulu/Tivo generation, but in the pre-VCR days, you either saw something when it was on or you didn’t see it. Not only so, but even if you did see it when it was on, you couldn’t see it again until the network showed it. So the ability to have instant access to something (an even more instant access with a DVD compared to a VHS), especially something as seminal to my childhood as V, is astounding to me. You’d think I’d be over it by now, as I have Tivo and YouTube streaming to my TV and most of my beloved movies on my computer hard drive, but apparently I’m not. Proof that I’m not? I snatched this up as soon as I saw it.
