Sometimes it's better to leave things as memories

OMG. So, with one of the Chapters gift cards I got for Christmas, I bought Quark -- the complete series -- on DVD. This science-fiction sitcom from 1978 was created by Buck Henry and starred Richard Benjamin. I fondly remembered it, but ...

Wow, is it ever crappy. Obvious, dumb jokes; intrusive laugh track; terrible sets. Holy cow. Television has come a looooong way in 30 years! I've seen way better student films or YouTube videos -- and this was a major network series!

I have fond (if fuzzy) memories of Quark, too. Thanks to your post, I'll make sure to leave well enough alone!
