I guess I respect them for having the integrity to use a 75 year old geezer to promote their line rather than an eighties supermodel like Christie Brinkley or Kathy Ireland. However, in retrospect, it may have been the wrong choice.

I used to know someone whose roommate got her master's degree in film with one of these.

She found one with a damaged stylus (which is all of them) and a copy of Jane Fonda's Workout permanently stuck in it, and made a series of "experimental films" that were just her using the remote to advance to different parts of the disc and then letting it skip in place.

Okay, I'll bite: was the final product any good?

Experimental films aren't necessarily supposed to be "good".

I never saw it, this was someone I worked with in the mid 2000s who went to school with said roommate in the mid 80s.

Look at the size of those things. They're all potential murder weapons. Even the remote could knock somebody out if you threw it at 'em.

I trhink I saw that episode of "Columbo".

I've seen a couple of them in person, they're built like the front end of a Dodge van and way about 40 pounds, at least the really early ones.

I had a couple of the later ones. Not nearly as huge and heavy.

It was a surprisingly good product, for what it was and for the time. Video quality at least as good as VHS, much better stereo sound than VHS analog, and very grandma-friendly.
