^Why? Because he prefers a better picture quality?

I've finished watching Enterprise--it was better than I remembered--and now thinking about watching AHS, season 6, as it's finally available on Netflix.
To me it looks like you're saying that banning bombs didn't stop bombs going off therefore there is no point to gun control because it's a mental health issue.

Better quality doesn't mean DVDs are such poor quality to be unwatchable.

STAR WARS : The Last Jedi
Crazy, I'm halfway to crazy
Suicide would waste me
Homicide would break me
Tongue tied and tied to the tongue
Tongue tied and tied to the tongue
Oh, is life as bad as dreams
I guess that's just the way it seems

Recorded Dr. Who episodes. 
A good monarch is a treasure. A good politician is an oxymoron.

Better quality doesn't mean DVDs are such poor quality to be unwatchable.

Opinions vary. IMHO, DVDs are only an option if there isn't anything better available.

The Grand Tour. Star Trek - The Next Generation.

The former is more fun.

Ooh! that's good! Must confess,  I never was a Sherlock fan until Cucumber-patch played  him.  But i just love that serial.

I'm munching my way through the first serial of Peaky Blinders before it vanishes from BBC i-player.  I'm not much into gangster stories , and happily ignored jhe rave reviews . Never mind if it's set in Birmingham , England, just after the first World War (well that does make it rather more interesting to me.  Breaks the usual stereotypes. Also makes it feel kinda homely, being  set just 20 miles down the road from here.    And I'm becoming increasingly intersted in the way those two World Wars fucked up a  couple of generations. I think it all-too-likely we're still living with the consequences) .   But what finally roped me in was the music. Firstly, the trailer for series 4  features a really  amazing cover of "Wicked Game" , which I was compelled to look up. ((It's by a band called London Grammar) .  Whilst looking it up, I found out that it had a theme song by Nick Cave  and....oh! well,  I've never , ever run across a bad drama that had such a good soundtrack.  So I've finally bitten.

The weird thing is that  they've m ade no attempt whatsoever to match the soundtrack with the period. But it works. It really works. 

Here's that trailer:

But DVDs are not an option, thus blue ray snob.

Been nibbling at the Doctor Who marathon.  Waiting until Christmas night.

Or their (lack of) quality is simply not enough.

I don't think blu-rays are that good either, tbh, they are simply better than DVDs.

Venus Angelic on YouTube. Poor Venus. When I first saw her YouTube videos I thought “Erm, OK, trying too hard to look cute” but then I gave her videos a go, way before I knew she had problems with her mother. IOW it wasn’t seeing her background that made me like her, I like her anyway. I like who she is. I like it when people dress differently, I don’t see anything wrong with it. I think she’s skilled at what she does, and I admire it. She speaks 7 languages as it happens.
