Hi! I'm Terry J. Aman, and I'm a media packrat. In 2017, I finished transferring hundreds of VHS tapes with material dating back to the 1980s onto 2,500+ discs. Now I'm in the process of finding out what's on all of these things. Welcome to VideoFuzzy, which is both a blog listing the material I'm finding on these discs, and a twice-monthly podcast highlighting the progress I'm making cataloging my VHS-to-DVD transfers, my direct-to-DVD recordings, and commentary on what I've been watching.

Hi! My name is Terry J. Aman and this installment marks my 58th episode of "VideoFuzzy," my twice-monthly progress report on cataloging more than 2,800 VHS transfers and digital recordings. In this installment, titled "Trips to the Past," I wax nostalgic as music playing at the City Brew takes me back. For my Friday Night Feature, I take a long, hard look at a second-season episode of "Primeval."

In Cross Connections, I track "Studio Six Feet Under" connections for "Primeval," including its ties with "The Crown." I track connections from Jessalyn Gilsig from "Nip/Tuck" to "Glee" and "Heroes." Also, Donal Logue from the second season premiere of "Life" takes me to the IMDb credit of friend of the podcast Heather Welliver.

In my Classic VHS-to-DVD Collection, I talk about the fifth season premiere of "The Office," Homer gets a PC in a 12th season episode of "The Simpsons," a fifth season episode of "Boston Legal," second season episode of "Mad Men" and the second season premiere of "Chuck."

In my direct-to-DVD Current Collection, comments on community access cable presentations including the visit by Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg to Standing Rock Reservation south of Bismarck, a short history of the rail bridge crossing the Missouri River between Bismarck and Mandan, and Sean Gaskell playing the West African kota. Also, a profile called "Shadowcatcher" on Bismarck photographer Shane Balkowitsch by University of Mary student filmmaker Phillip Litton. Also, comments on "Superstore" and "The Good Place."

In VideoFuzzy at the Movies, comments on the FX presentation of "The Kingsman: The Golden Circle" and the TNT presentation of "The Imitation Game" starring Benedict Cumberbatch as cryptanalyst Alan Turing. And in What I've Been Watching, a spoiler-y commentary on McKellan and Mirren in recent release "The Good Liar." Enjoy!
