    !!! If you're a sadist! *begrudging* I guess you could make the argument it was unconventional, and immensely dramatic or something. But speaking from my heart, I have never felt so personally betrayed by a show, I followed the series from beginning to end, everywhere it went, invested myself in the premise of "Sam-getting-home" and they end it with him leaping off into God-know's-where (excuse the pun ) and he never gets home!?!?!? Nuh uh! I loved him fixing things for Al and Beth *fuming about replacement of Georgia on my Mind on DVD release * but I needed him to get home too, or at least some indication he would or might. Personal opinion I'm sure, but I hated the ending.

    Default Quantum Leap!

    Any QL fans here?

    Great show - loved for many of the same reasons I like SG1/A;
    strong charecter development; sciency; great relationships; amazing stories..........

    It was axed way too early..........he never got home right?

    Any news on the "Bold Leap Forward"?
    It's a joke. My way of deflecting attention from my own obvious heroism. You'll get used to it.

    I loved Quantum Leap. My favorite episode was the one where he does get home and Al takes his place (I forget epi name). Other than that, no he never gets home. Great great show.

    It was after the ep where Sam gets electric shock and exhibits the multiple personalites of the past people he leaped into........

    he and Al swap places at the end......Shock Theatre->The Leap Back!!!
    a genius pair of stories

    How was it meeting DS? If you met him quite recently, did he saying anything about a NEW QL?

    I loved that show! It was heartwarming to watch Sam improving the lives of total strangers by "trying to set right what once went wrong". I was very sad that he never got home as he had certainly earned it.

    i loved quantum leap as a kids and have watched reruns of the show however i have never, ever liked the ending.

    i thought the whole part about Sam could go home if he wanted yet still couldn't wasn't want i had hoped. i think the part with him never getting home should have been left out because it would have added this great mystery to the show, does he get home after we see his final leap but they had to kill any chance of us thinking he gets home

    That show was definitely one of my favorites as a kid. Very entertaining. To this day, I'm still a little bummed out that Sam never made it back home. Stuck leaping for the rest of his life.

    Was that one of the first episodes you watched (I just wondering). if it is then that's the problem, you didn't catch the backstory of the show (except the short one at the beginning of the episode)

    What kind of fan do you take me for? No! I just didn't understand it...

    I mean, first he leaps into a bar where one of the characters was named "Ziggy" (named of course for the computer that helped out Al and Sam) and then that character "leaps" out of nowhere. Then, no one remembers "Ziggy". I mean, did he leap to anywhere or time?

    Then he leaps to a crying woman (what the hell? past episode? someone fill me in!) and then he leaps into nothingness with a line that he never return home. WTF??

    Exclamation Re: Quantum Leap!

    Sam leaps to other time periods, but only time periods within his own lifetime. His birth date is the date of the final episode of the series.

    That still doesn't explain what happen in that episode. It was very confusing...

    the crying woman was Al's first wife, the women he has always truely loved. in one episode, when Sam leaped back to her, we were seeing a continuation of a previous episode where Al tried to get Sam to stop her from remarrying because she believed Al had died in Vietnam and was getting ready to move with her life (because it had been a year or 2 since Al was reported dead).

    Al thought that is why Sam was originally sent back (or tried to make himself believe that) so when Sam learnt that he was controlling his leaps, he leaped back to tell her to wait for Al. this lead to use learning at the end about them still being married.

    As for the bar, that is a weird one. everyone in the bar was someone Sam met during one of his leaps, they just had names of people sam knew (like Ziggy and Al) but there is a believe that the Bartender is perhaps God who was using Sam to help people but since it was Sam who was leaping himself, it is hard to know because it was beleived that a higher power was using Sam (which seemed to be backed up by the evil leapers).

    the show was supposed to be contiued from where it left off so we were supposed to be left with a cliffhanger but since the show ended, Sam just kept leaping and leaping helping people. since we don't know the specifics, it is possible that he could have did this for eternity or until his body dies but the part about Sam controlling his leaps suggests he could go home but something is stopping him. it is possible that he had one chance to return home but he sacficed it for Al. we saw that when it comes to Al, Sam would risk being lost in time (which was a great episode)
