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 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 67th episode of "VideoFuzzy," reporting the progress I've made in cataloging more than 2,900 VHS transfers and digital recordings. In this installment, titled "Let's Talk About This," I explore a fourth-season episode of "Criminal Minds" where a serial killer is targeting police officers in Phoenix, Arizona, and thematic implications for our current media and social environment, including authoritarian behavior and police brutality.

I trace connections through shows I encounter in this set, including Scott Lowell and Michael O'Neill's appearances in "Leverage," Mary Gross, James Denton and John Larroquette, and then trace a Golden Thread tracking Adam Arkin's appearances in my collection.

In my Classic VHS-to-DVD Collection, I talk about "The Simpsons," "Skins," "South Park," "Psych," "Damages" and highlight what struck me as misdelivered lines in "Take This Sabbath Day," a significant first season episode of "The West Wing." Also, revisiting some Old Business regarding Olive Snook singing "Eternal Flame" in a second season episode of "Pushing Daisies," and in Nerd Shows, I talk about the third season episode of "The Universe" titled "Sex in Space."

In my Current, direct-to-DVD Collection, it's a segment-length Lightning Round with comments on "I Am Legend," "Heaven is for Real," "Harley Quinn," "The Alienist: Angel of Darkness," "Cake," "Castle," a 2017 documentary called "Prince: When Doves Cry," "The Lodger" (1944), "The Boston Strangler," "The Twilight Zone," "Disturbia," "Fantastic Four" (2015), "Braven," "Before I Go to Sleep" and oh wow, Stephen King's "Dark Tower" was amazing.
