Hi, I just discovered this group and atheistnexus. I hate for my first post to seem self-serving, but I have an e-book (only about 30 pages) with what is (hopefully) a fun mix of Star Trek and atheism that will be FREE on black Friday at amazon.com: The Faith of an Atheist. Fellow trekkie atheists might enjoy it, and it's free this Friday.

"Quark" ... was cleverly, wickedly funny.  I think that was about the time that the average couch potato had to have everything spelled out for him/her in capital letters.

One of my general gripes about TV is laugh tracks (reportedly much more common in U.S. than in British TV). Do we really need to be hit over the head and told "That was funny!"?

Another purpose of laugh tracks could be simulating a social group, creating a feeling of watching with other people even when you're watching a show alone.

Hey, great! Thanks sk8eycat. The second Quark video starts with my favorite scene. I've bookmarked it. *big smile*

I've been having trouble finding things on Wikipedia the last few weeks; I think they've made some major changes....and I don't like them!

Try this: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0077066/

Scroll down below the cast list for a brief storyline.

sk8eycat, the Quark (TV series) wikipedia link was a dud. Glad somebody else enjoyed it.

That ad I post earlier was from 1893.

Ruth and Stephen: I LOVED "Quark"!  It didn't last very long...not even a full season...but it was cleverly, wickedly funny.  I think that was about the time that the average couch potato had to have everything spelled out for him/her in capital letters.  They just didn't get subtle humor.

Same thing happened at about the same time to a comedy about Robin Hood, I think.  "When Things Were Rotten"  That was  produced by Mel Brooks.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/When_Things_Were_Rotten

Both Mel Brooks and Buck Henry were creators/writers on "Get Smart."
