Q.E.D.!

If ever a TV series practically screamed DVD, this would seem to be it! It's developed a cult following despite not having been seen on the air (as far as I know) since its original 1982 run. Highly touted at first, the tale of Professor Quentin E. Deverill, the forward-thinking, eccentric Edwardian inventor failed to attract an audience for its unusual mysteries and thus ran only six episodes. Over the years as star Sam Waterston has become more and more of a TV staple, I've encountered a number of people who recall this show fondly. Only six episodes. Waterston doing commentary perhaps. Maybe $29.95. If they can issue the JOEY BISHOP SHOW on DVD (in multiple box sets yet!) surely someone can let us have some of the forgotten good stuff...like Q.E.D.

Oh man, did I love Q.E.D. I would snap up a DVD set of that show so fast it would make your head spin. Well, perhaps not yours, but most people. And speaking of fondly remembered sci-fi shows that begin with Q, I'd love to see Quark released on DVD as well...

Interesting blog, BTW. I'm here via Progressive Ruin.

My God, I cannot believe that anyone else out there remembers this show as fondly as I do -- this is amazing! I'd KILL for this in DVD. Fun blog, too.

No way. Leave it to the internet for me to find other human beings who have heard of and loved this show! Fondly remember watching every episode in my bedroom as a kid on my little black & white TV - thanks for the post!
