As I was flipping through Netflix recommendations today, I noticed that Netflix has the Star Trek animated series now. Didn't watch it, but I remember liking it as a kid and it was written by the original series writers. May give it a try this week to see how it holds up.

Episode 2 is good, and that's it.  The rest range from watchable to WTF.

So, if you want to hold onto those childhood memories of liking it, don't watch past episode 2.

That was such a horrible format.  The discs and the players would both wear out.  Some dust causing the tiniest scratch on the disc would cause it to skip at that spot forever, and the players used a needle that would wear out.

Back when the format died out you could pick up the players for practical nothing, and the discs got super cheap also but there were only crappy movies left to choose from.  I remember picking up a player and a few discs for $20 back in the mid 80s.

But the discs were cool to look at if you took them out of the shell, wish I still had one to hang on the wall.

Yeah my parents never bought one but I do remember seeing them around back in the 80s..
Yeah these video discs would look really cool as wall decorations - They are still available on ebay I see  :o

One of the people I follow on youtube did a video on that type of format (he also occasionally does riffs).
