Do any of you remember the first DVD that you purchased? Mine was "Deep Blue Sea". When I bought it, I remember that I was almost shaking on my way home. I had friends who owned DVD players, and I was always kind of jealous of them. But finally I was able to watch DVDs as well. At the time, DVDs were the new hot thing, as most people still used VCRs to watch movies with(imagine that :eek: :rolleyes: ). Now, I own about 20 DVDs, and if you actually watch full-length movies on VHS, then you are considered old-fashioned. If you think about, VHS was still the standard only five years ago. It's amazing to me how quickly times change.

Funny, I can still remember thinking to myself that "Movies on a CD" would never catch on, and that no one would start buying them! Remember Laserdiscs????? haha.

I bought a DVD/VCR combo because I had so many good movies for VHS and I didn't feel like spending the money to replace them all with the DVD version. So I still watch my VHS's.

BTW, my first DVD was...hmm, can't seem to remember.

Being that I'm lame and just got a DVD player, I think I only own 1 DVD set. And it's the Sex and the City episodes, season 4. Damn I don't even have the other seasons. :(

Yeah, that's the same way I felt when I got my first DVD - Deep Blue Sea. You know what they say about great minds don't you. :D

It wasnt even really that though. It never really caught on by itself. It was shoved down our throats. I remember when it first came out there were like no DVDs and when they advertised a new movie being released to video they would say "video and dvd" then that slowly switched to "dvd and video" and it became more and more difficult to find a fucking video cassette. It kind of pisses me off.
