Marvin the Paranoid VCR???

I bought a copy of the original BBC miniseries version of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy on VHS at a garage sale awhile back. Tonight I decided to fire up my good old VCR (had to search everywhere for the remote) and watch it. Apparently the VCR knew I wanted it to work so of course it didn't. All I got was sound. Now of course this ticked me off so I started pulling cables and trying all sorts of things. The really crazy part is that it all of a sudden just started working. Like I said I think the VCR is part Marvin.

  1. This is why you need to skip the VHS and fork over the cash for the DVD version.
    (Although to be fair, I actually have both, although the VHS languishes at the abode of the parental units since I don't need it with the DVD...)
