When you look back on it what downsides were there to VHS? Exactly, none. They didn't scratch, they didn't have annoying menus, no bonus material because, lets be honest who wants to hear where Tom Cruise got his inspiration from anyways.
Sure rewinding took a while, but that gave you time to make some popcorn. And yes, sometimes your home movies could be recorded over with the latest episode of Seinfeld, his life was much more entertaining, so no loss there.
Honestly, the more I dwell on this the fewer downsides I can think of. That's it I'm bringing them back, move over blu-ray the king is back in town!
