Check out this Time Life Video Club insert (from a July 1988 TV Guide). Just buy four tapes for $1.00 each, and be stuck with this horrible deal seemingly forever. Once you enroll, you’ll have to buy five more at “regular club price” plus shipping and handling – which made these type of record and tape clubs a complete ripoff.
Still, look what you can get for a buck apiece! Police Academy 4, Superman 4: The Quest for Peace, Revenge of the Nerds 2, and Jewel of the Nile!
I do like that they include some more obscure and off-the-beaten path tapes. Sure, you’ve got Dirty Dancing and Lethal Weapon… but you also have The Believers, Return of the Living Dead 2, and Blue Velvet.
Man, those aerobics VHS tapes were definitely the rage in the eighties. How many Jane Fonda workout videos were there?
