QUARK - the TV show

No, not the Ferengi from DS9, but a truly awful/wonderful short lived sci-fi TV show from the late 1970's.

Watch and weep:

Could they rip off the Star Trek theme anymore? though I guess that's the point.

Not a show about the sexy, exciting world of desktop publishing, then?

How thoroughly disappointing!

Cheers

This is good. I like I like.

The twins, they don't have women like that now.

The ship, looks like something I could very easily make in Spore.

I know I've seen the parts for that.

MAybe Will Wright watched the show as well.

Notice how it looks just plain white in colour in the long shots.



Who cares if this ripps off Star Trek. Anything thats more like the classic can't be too bad.

I wonder if this was partly inspiration for Farscape as well, but loses alot of the charm in the comparison.

Comparing the Spock-like character with Pa'u Zotoh Zhaan.

I know which one I prefer, but still think that Farscape lacks alot of the gitchy charm of shows made in the seventies.

Wasn't it that thing with Sally Field?  Or was it Sandra Dee?

Thats how I sum up early sci/fi shows that might resemble or seem like influence of classic Star Trek.

What ever the real meaning of the word gitchy, I simpley used it as a way of explaining exchange of realism for cuteness, ( When I don't wish to use to word cute.) all the characters are so neatly stereotyped and it's not heavy to pick up on. It's not overly dramatic and pretensous. It just is what it is, and it knows it' actualley a parody. If this show is dumb, then it knows it's being dumb.

Sally Field brings Gidget to mind. Hah, and from tha you have Gidgety I don't know what that means.
