Too many DVD's?

When I was a young child in the early 70's during an Easter holiday we had only 3 tv channels during those days indeed and there was during the entire holiday NOTHING on it except passion plays for that period of the year! Horrible! I will never forget how bored I was during those days! I still remember it now! It had such an impact that I became a book, DVD and comics collector for generations to come to read and hopefully enjoy! On the other hand if I ever retire I have enough material to read and view untill my last breath and that gives me a good feeling!
