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.
