When Nan and I met, we discovered we both had an unrealized love for Mystery Science Theater 3000. Not having cable at the time, we didn't get to watch many episodes....until we discovered that my parents had cable and were willing to record each episode for us (on VHS!) and mailed them up to us.
We still watch them a lot upstairs where the VCR is and we love the old commercials that play with each episode. The above one with Commander Sisko (for some reason I stopped watching DS9 before his promotion so he will always be Commander to me...) bemoaning the fact we have no flying cars in the year 2000 is one of our favorites!
