This Is What George Lucas Really Intended To Write :),
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Quark - The Complete Series (DVD)
Truly a bit of comic SF genius! It poked fun at every current SF blockbuster out there at the time...the take -off on Star Wars with Hans Conried as the voice of "The Source" is worth the price of the series by itself as it is one of the best of the early parodies of the movies.
The series is hokey, it *knows* it's hokey and revels in it. Like the equally little-known "Wizards and Warriors", it mercilessly impales and lampoons an entire genre with a few well-written quips.
If you enjoy good parody, buy this baby. We need to encourage the studios to both bring these gems out of the vaults and to create more.

Oh my gosh! You're the first person I've heard mention Wizards and Warriors in decades! I loved that show. I didn't think anyone but me remembered it.

Plenty of us remember Wizards and Warriors very, VERY fondly. (The scene where Princess Ariel does a tap dance in wooden clogs and panniers and Dirk says quietly, "There are no words..." OMG, what fun!) Search the 'net for it and you'll find the fan pages!

Wizards and Warriors, Quark, and When Things Were Rotten. I probably liked a few good shows also but I don't really remember them with fondness like these three.
