A Quick Tip by RabidChihuahua

In the last five years or so, nearly all of the Blockbuster locations in my area have closed down, and honestly, I don't miss them.

Their prices were a bit ridiculous, and this would be understandable if they had a large selection to choose from, but their library of videos to rent was so-so at best compared to the sadly defunct Hollywood Video.

Given how Family Video has most of their selection for only $1 for rental and the rise of online streaming services, is it really any wonder why Blockbuster has lost so much share in the video rental market?

I hadn't been in a Blockbuster in well over 5 years - my hometown had a Hollywood Video instead, and then when I moved to college I just used Netflix. I never really had an opinion of the chain at all.      When I finally located the television section in the store, I found that all 6 copies of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" …

Commonly referred to as "Cockbuster". Don't expect to rent anything abouve an R-rating from this store. Instead, go to amazon.com
