    I have just been watching an episode from 2000-01.

    There is a cult featured called Earthomy.

    They have a founder who likes writing and owns a luxury boat.

    A member who is a well known film star.

    A dirty tricks department.

    Dick Van Dyke pretending that he would like to join is invited to hold hands with a machine that is checking him and the space around him.

    Members are expected to make generous contributions.

    Staff members have a monk type uniform to wear and are given promises to keep their loyalty.

    What real organistion could Earthomy be refering to?

    Fun to watch due to the Scientology basis. The earth globe in the founder's office was a nice touch, too bad they didn't have a pack of KOOL's.

    One of Dick Van Dyke's lines is: "You know, they have an excellent class in here on communications........."

    "Barry is most famous for Diagnosis Murder (1993-2002). He played Steve Sloan, a Manhattan detective whose physician dad (Dick Van Dyke, naturally) keeps stumbling upon murders. They investigate, along with a team of doctors, detectives, and pathologists, usually of the young hunk variety: Charlie Schlatter, Scott Baio, Shane Van Dyke, and so on."

    "This was a gay-free Manhattan, so there weren't any gay characters, except for an episode which parodied Scientology and had a closeted gay actor as a suspect. But the beefcake and buddy-bonding were enough."
