    I totally loved watching that show growing up. My Mom and Dad even really liked it. Dean Stockwell and Scott Bakula were just awesome together.

    I found Quantum Leap by accident and by the second episode, I was hooked. Al and Sam are a good - and amusing - team. Since then I have bought 3 seasons on DVD. It can be a bit dodgy at times, but overall I like it a lot. I admit I only discovered it last year and the only incentive to watch it was the name "beckett" (i'm hopeless )

    and the thing that amused me most...was Sam saying "ya think?"

    An interesting bit of trivia; In the episode "All Americans", which originally aired on 17 January 1990, Al states he was watching Super Bowl XXX, and the Pittsburgh Steelers were playing and were three points behind in the fourth quarter. The actual game wouldn't air for another six years, but the Steelers did play and were, in fact, three points behind in the fourth quarter. The team hadn't been to the Super Bowl in the ten years prior.

    Makes you think...

Cuttin' on his own face, rapin' and murdering - Hell, I'll kill a man in a fair fight... or if I think he's gonna start a fair fight, or if he bothers me, or if there's a woman, or if I'm gettin' paid - mostly only when I'm gettin' paid. But these Reavers... last ten years they show up like the bogeyman from stories. Eating people alive? Where's that get fun?

    Easy up, I'm only new to QL My first experience with Dean Stockwell was most likely Beverly Hills Cop 2 still working my way through season 3. Saw 8 1/2 Months last night - amusing. Is it just me or did they tone down Al's character a little in season 3?

    just saw Shock Theatre. Usually with episodes that involve the main character in danger I always feel assured that they'll be alright in the next ep. Shock Theatre is one of the few that has made me forget they'll be alright and sit on the edge of my seat.
    I was wondering if they'd ever do a recap episode. It was interesting to see the different personalities manifest - sorta following on from when that psychic in the circus episode said "you have been reincarnated many times".
    At last we see another character from the future in ST! And at last Al gets his own act loved the rap he had going. Nice swap at the end. Can't wait to see how that turns out.

    yes, sadly, I've only just finished watching season 3.

    I remember this show and it was great!! I only saw a few episodes and never got to watch the last one, but now knowing that Sam never got home was sad.

    Didn't he get home in one of the episodes, but it was Al who was then stuck in Sam's body, can't remember, and in the end he had to leap anyway. Geez, it was so long ago I can't remember anymore

    I'm a bit disappointed with the lack of special features on the season 2 & 3 DVD sets (please don't tell me 4&5 are the same). What's with that? Surely they could have knocked something together other than the doco on season 1.

    The thing that impresses me about Scott Bakula is that he can truly sing. Although I found the piano playing a little over done in season 3

    QL was probably one of the first sci-fi shows I really loved. (I liked Greatest American Hero, too, but I was four when it aired, so that doesn't count! :::wink::

    As much as I adored Sam, I always had a crush on Al. I was thrilled to see Dean Stockwell on SG-1 and BSG.

    God, favorite episodes? Hmm. A musical theater lover, I always had a soft spot for "Catch A Falling Star"....or anything else in which Scott sang, for that matter. I loved where he would crossover and influence famous people, like Chubbie Checker, Buddy Holly, and "little Stevie King".

    I'll never forget feeling totally destroyed when those words came across the screen, ending the final episode. "Doctor Sam Beckett never returned home".

    Default Any Quantum Leap fans here, and what about the Quantum Leap movie:A bold leap forward

    Hey is there any quantum leap fans here. I use to love that show when I was a kid. It had a great premise, but the ending was a complete disappoitment. I hope they finally make the movie.
