Cool to read everyones different L&H viewing habits. I'll usually go a month without watching any, and then watch four a day for a week. I've got this monday & tuesday off, one days reserved for gardening day, depending on the weather, the other i'm gonna concentrate on the shorts and see how many i can get through, gonna aim for 20! Cool

Not often enough. It's difficult to thumb through the dozens of tapes I have (have been spoiled by DVD). I thought about getting the big DVD set but its pricey everywhere I have seen. Although there is also the option of mastering my old tapes.

They are on ebay and the lowest one is $185US. I am wondering how good the quality would be from my prerecorded tapes to DVD.

Thats about 100.Hmmmm.Quite a lot.
Quality shouldnt be lost transferring them i guess.
Personally,im happy with keeping mine on tape.I know DVD has the benefits of quicksearch though

I usually watch them like this too. I can't watch them at uni, so that's 2-3 months a time of not being able to see a L-H film .

I let the Boys slip for a year or so, due to various things, so now i try to do something L&H every day....either watching a film, listening to various audio documentaries,or reading one of the books I have. Plus, of course, i have found this wonderful place !! Razz

Since I recently purchased the 21-DVD set by Universal, then I've been watching The Boys everyday.

And, due to such releases and the discovery of this Forum both have added to my rekindled interest in L&H since I purchased a couple of videos of them in the late 90's. But, a lot of the shorts and features that I am currently viewing I haven't seen since I was about 12 or 13 years old...maybe younger with some of them.

Exciting stuff!

Once a week, but i do get some strange looks from women when i try and do the stan impression with my hair, they think i'm strange Embarassed


I remember when i was a kid and when i was on holidays and on days that i was "sick" i would watch BBC2 they would show the boys, but it is hard to find any tv programmes showing them now. only the dvds.

l may be ill... l watch them nightly when l go to bed... maybe a short and a feature or 5 shorts.... when l only had vhs tape l'd put one on and fall asleep to it.... before the video age, l would tape record the audio when they were on tv and listen to that.... before that, l'd read the L&H Bible.... Every few years l'll take a break. But not right now..... As a hobby, l like to edit the 'tougher' movies and make them funny L&H films.... Smile
