    I have three that I really love to this day...
    1. "Teen Summit" it was an informative teen show that aired on BET up until a few years ago. I taped this particular episode because it was a full hour of Immature a 90's boy band I was obsessed with.
    2. "Moonwalker" it came on VH1 years back. I'm glad I still have it because I can't find it on dvd.
    3. "N'Sync:Live at Madison Square Garden/ "N'Sync's Winter Special that aired on ABC. Yes, I loved them. No shame in my game!

            For the last twenty years or so, I've been collecting on VHS the musical performances from the Tony Awards broadcasts, which is probably the only way to capture a pro-shot performance of musicals' original cast(for home viewing). I hear that each broadway show is pro-shot, but is archived in the NY public library of the performing arts in Lincoln Center, but none has ever been released on video I also tape performances from the Macy's Day Parade, but these are outdoor perfromances without the original sets.

            About five years ago, someone finally got the idea to release the rare Tony performances on DVD (as "Broadway's Lost Treasures").

              I recorded an ESPN Classic re-air of the 1984 Flutie Miracle Game about 4-5 years ago, and amazingly, the tape holds up, no matter how much I look at it.

                        The Hugga Bunch movie

                        A Muppet Family Christmas. really happy about that one, as it's the complete and unedited crap version that they futzed up the dvd with.

                        The Christmas Toy. same reasons as the Muppet Family Christmas

                        The Smurfs And The Magic Flute

                        The Return Of Sherlock Holmes

                        and the complete series of WKRP from when TNN (now Spike) re-ran them about 10 years ago
                        Don't pay any attention to the evil spirited and dead of heart. They're not worth your time.

                          Man, I used to tape alot of good shit. I have a few tapes with various random shows on them. Some of my favorite ones I recorded were the Andy Dick show (hilarious show), the Original family guy airings on Fox network. A whole bunch of Simpsons episodes. I don't even know what else I have recorded, they're so old now. I'll have to dig 'em up again someday.

                            Dragon Ball Z. There was about six hours worth of footage on the tape that my brothers recorded. As for me, it was an old Spongebob Squarepants episode that aired in 2002.

                                    Much Music's video spotlights on the Who. These included clips of group members for the show The New Music which haven't really circulated much among Who fans.

                                      Weird Al special from the Disney Channel, circa 1997. It was a bunch of live performances intercut with mockumentary footage. I can't find any information on it and according to the internet it never happened. But I have the proof!
                                      I love you, Donna Troy.
