A Tape Me Back selection

Slacker best friends Wayne (Mike Meyers) and Garth (Dana Carvey) try to promote their public-access cable show and save Wayne's girlfriend.

Tape Me Back

When VHS beat Betamax in the tape wars, it set the course of home entertainment for the better part of the next two decades. By the 90s, the format was in its heyday and became synonymous with staples of the era. With this Rooftop mini-series we explore some of the archetapes of the moment on the format they were presented in. So come join us as we pop the tape into the VCR and travel back in time this summer.
