Snowboard Vids for Intermediates?

Now there's lots of cool videos out there but are there videos that are more 'intermediate' in their abilities? I'm not much of a park rider but I love Pow videos and some of that Big mountain stuff but are there videos that I can watch that have some kind of 'attainable' goals?

It seems all these 'new' videos with the pros are so high end that I don't see myself ever reaching those goals. I need something like the early TB series with some simple buttering, medium jumps into pow, just fun little hits people hit on the way down in the back country.

Someone mentioned the Steak & Lobster video back on VHS which I remember, some of the early whiskey videos were cool. Watching the old TB 2 videos and the resort pow rides people were doing were cool.

YouTube - Terje Haakonsen TB2 The TB2 video, my first snowboard video I ever saw. There's stuff in there I can't do fer sure but there's still stuff I can see myself able to do, well not necessarily what Terje did but still. lol

Ahhh I started too late and now I'm too old lol. My 36 y/o 5'8 225 frame doesn't like crashing in the park and having to replace the divets for all you good riders... My friend who's 2 years older but went to college in Colorado still rides the park though.
