Storyline

We start with a recap of last week's episode and find out that Zorgon the Malevolent is pleased that Quark has directed him to the asteroid Rumbar and "It." As a reward, Zorgon decides to feed Quark and the Betty's to a Lizagoth on the asteroid Rumbar! Meanwhile Libido rescues Ficus from death by a laser and Gene/Jean successfully keeps Zorgon's crew off guard. On the asteroid as Quark and the Betty's are about to be eaten by a Lizagoth, they are saved by the Barron of the Forrest People. The Barron tells Quark the legend of "It" and later that evening Quark finds "It" and with the power of "It" Quark becomes invincible. Now with "It" Quark returns to the starship to vanquish Zorgon and save the United Galaxy. Written by H Pylypiw

Another sidesplitting episode
31 August 2011 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

Quark (a terrifically dry'n'droll Richard Benjamin) and his screwball crew are rescued by the Forrest People just as they are about to be eaten by the nasty humanoid lizard. Moreover, Quark finds "it," a crystal that he thinks will make him invincible. Naturally, the dastardly Zorgon the Malevolent (deliciously essayed with hammy brio by Ross Martin) wants "it" for himself so he can rule the universe. Director Bruce Bilson, working from a clever and inspired script by Jonathan Kaufer, relates the immensely entertaining story at a brisk pace and maintains an engaging tongue-in-cheek tone throughout. The cast tackle the sharp material with infectious zest: Tim Thomerson excels as Gene/Jean, who's swaggering machismo really goes hysterically hog wild in this particular tale; Richard Kelton cuts a perfectly stoic figure as the ridiculously phlegmatic Ficus, Tricia and Cyb Barnstable are in characteristic luscious and dynamic form as the insanely scrumptious Betty I and Betty II, who look mad sexy in gold hot pants and halter tops; Bobby Porter has several hilarious moments as the abjectly craven robot Andy, and Conrad Janis is sublimely unctuous as the ever-smarmy Otto Palindrome. In addition, the lovely Joan Van Ark contributes a memorably fetching turn as the lusty and enticing Princess Libido. Once again, Ficus demonstrates "pollinating" to Libido with positively sidesplitting results. Another comic highlight has the brash and overconfident Quark taking on one of Zorgon's hulking henchman under the false pretense that he's unbeatable. The makers of this show definitely hit their satirical stride with this cracking two part episode, which makes the fact that this show only lasted a mere eight episodes that much more of an unfortunate shame. An absolute hoot.
