Show Summary

"Theorizing that one could time travel within his own lifetime, Dr. Sam Beckett stepped into the Quantum Leap accelerator and vanished. He woke to find himself trapped in the past, facing mirror images that were not his own and driven by an unknown force to change history for the better. His only guide on this journey is Al, an observer from his own time, who appears in the form of a hologram that only Sam can see and hear. And so Dr. Beckett finds himself leaping from life to life, striving to put right what once went wrong, and hoping each time that his next leap will be the leap home."

    I thought the show was brilliant! I liked how each episode was of a different genre such as some were comedy, while others were dramas, mellowdramas, and even nostalgia. It was shame it ended so abruptly and with an open ended last episode as well. The last known produced episode Mirror Image revealed that Sam was in fact leaping of his own free will and that no other existence was moving him around in time as we are all led to believe by the show's opening narration. However, an explanation was never given to how it was done in that final episode, but only pointing out that everything that Sam had hoped about the project was done as a result of his random leaps.



    For five seasons we all witnessed Sam being leaped around by an unknown force, as his own invention only worked for him in the initial first leap upon stepping on to the Quantum Leap Accelerator. The rest was uncontrolled at a point in time after Sam created the right that needed to be placed in someone's life where he would leap again with no one at the project's future headquarters nor Sam himself activating his time machine to do so. As a result of all of this we viewers witnessed, a better explanation to how Sam was leaping himself around in time is needed. Accomplishing what you set out to do and still have more yet to go is not an answer! Perhaps a reunion type of movie would do that!moreless

    A truly well done show with a perfect blend of humorous and serious themes. Almost every important controversial subject is themed and very well portrayed from Teen pregnancy and those with mental disabilities to Civil Rights and Homosexuality. All told from the point of view of a man who sees beauty in all types of people. Quite a powerful and entertaining show.



    It only pains me that the fifth and final season got off track and gimmicky with celebrity leaps and the evil leaper trilogy. Though I do find the evil leapers enjoyable more so than the Abigail story by far.moreless
  • A drama that felt like a sci-fi, yes really.

    This show started off every episode as a sci-fi and ended up as one again but in the middle it was a big fat soap opera. Nothing wrong with that cause it was well made and the fact that Scott Bakula's character would change "bodies" every episode was interesting. I Remember that sometimes all i ever watched was the beginning to see who he was this time on the episode.



    Some episodes were a hit and others were a miss, overall a good experience. It had some very good social themes that dealt with racism, women rights, handicapped people, etc.



    Worth the watch if you have the time.moreless
