The first Alien movie for me was Aliens on VHS on a 22" tube TV with a corded remote. Of course the sound was mono. For Alien movies ONLY- can you out geeze that?

Here is an example for talking smack:

corded remote hahahaha Old school! 

I cant beat that XD.

I had one of these VHS trilogy sets. Along with a JP trilogy VHS set they made up very prized possessions

LOL! I remember those days. I should have kept those VHS tapes- hipsters might pay top dollar to see and hear them in the so called analog warmth!

You dk and IRaptus may have been rich enough to afford all of that tech.  Not me.  It was hard to make money when I became an Alien fan.  I was lucky to be able to make it out of the house.  I had no money, nor did I own anything.  Plus, to watch Alien for the first time, it had to be by chance. Luckily Alien was a hit, so it got airtime.  Still, it was hard to even get control of what was on TV.  Plus, it was rated R.  I was probably around 5, so maybe around the year 1994.  I remember it as the 1979 Alien.  Yes, I do remember barely being able to contain my fear.  I've been an Alien fan around 25 years or so.  So, I'm around a 25 year old Alien fan.

Can anyone do better than that?

Oh, and obviously it was on a tube TV with no home entertainment system.  It was on standard 1994 technology.

1994 technology?! Oh- you were lucky. I had an RCA tube TV with a small speaker somewhere inside the set from the 80s. And it was in mono with no EQ options. It had a channel knob and volume dial that gave static when turning it.  Additionally, We had to deal with tracking control since VCRs were all different. Don't get me started on tuning in the red/green and tint :D

We had to compete for viewing time too. My folks wanted to watch Hill Street Blues or Matlock so I had to wait until late. Then, when I could watch I got yelled at for being up too late.

I was also a kid with little income and that's what we had. But we were pretty happy.

Well, I was born in 86 and in a communist country, so I must probably seen my first Alien movie on cable in the mid 90s, on a GoldStar (later LG) tv (size? Who does remember ....). I had an Alien movie before DVDs.

Well that's boring, but if you want to see something interesting featuring the Alien series please check out the Chuck Norris vs Communism do***entary ( exploring the way Romanians consumed American pop culture in the 80s/ early 90s.

Excuse me while I go and play my grand piano and go and fly my aeroplane, but you lot had it lucky. I remember watching Alien on a black and white telly because the licence was’nt as expensive as one of those posh colour licences, and not with one of those fancy outdoor aeriels, but an indoor one that went through a cheap signal booster from Radio Shack. As for remote control, I was the remote control. Lol.


TrilobiteMember8212 XPApr-04-2018 12:14 AM

You were the remote control? Luxury! I had to do that and hold the rabbit antenna to get a decent signal. That meant having to watch a show upside down if I was lucky.
