I hope the show's good, but I can't find any enthusiasm to watch it myself.  I'm satisfied with the first 75% of the original.

HOLY shiat

I just realized something

Magic was a character in the original series

Remeber the Leap Home when he went to Vietnam?

He leaped into Herbert "Magic" Williams who is played by Ernie Hudson!

Magic was the guy who had the sixth sense who was lucky to his Platoon in Vietnam

Now he works at Project Quantum Leap in 2022

I wonder if the writers did that in anticipation of Sam Becket showing up. It would add a personal relationship with the new leader of Quantum Leap and the Leaper.

Hail Atlantis!

I was hoping they did their homework better, but apparently there were no missions involving the Space Shuttle Atlantis in 1998. The last one before that was September 25, 1997 (¼ century ago yesterday!). There were six more after that (two each in 2000 − 2002). Maybe the opening title slide was wrong? Might be interesting to read the Mission Summaries of each to see if any of them involve astronauts of those names.

(FARK ate the URLs I tried to provide, but they're at NASA.)

The effort to combine dynamics of no gravity vs gravity in the same scene are creative. Nice effort there.

Overall, I thought the episode was better than the first. I'll keep with this for a bit.

We'll, we know Dr Beckett never returned home, but there's nothing stopping him from going to 2022.

That just means he never returned home. That doesn't mean that Sam won't be able to send messages to the new leap team in 2022.

Quantum Leap was one of the first shows I ever got into when I was a kid, and I watched the first episode of the new show... but haven't seen this one. However, after Count Bakula's recent comments I can't help feeling like he won't be back to play Sam which kind of sucks, but I hope the new show is successful and look forward to seeing more episodes.

One thing I am missing and hope they bring back are the touches of history gags. Things like in one episode Sam has a teen sidekick helper named Stevie. In the end before the leap he runs out and we learn it is a young Steven King as he gets into his mom's car (Christine) with a dog Cujo.

Or he gives the Heimlich Maneuver to Dr. Heimlich thus giving him the idea.

Or giving a young Buddy Holly the lyric "Peggy Sue".


And him giving a cab ride to a very young Donald Trump.


We need stuff like that to show up.

<tinfoilhat mode="MarvelNoPrize" level="5">I get it now! The final slide of the original series wasn't a typo after all! It was done deliberately to leave open a door! It said that "Dr. Sam Becket never returned home." One "t"! Nothing says that Dr. Sam Beckett never returns home!</tinfoilhat>

COMALite J: Episode description lied. 1998, not 1995.


comes with the territory: the original series couldn't even bother to spell the main character's last name right in the series finale's closing notes:

/And as a quantum Leap related aside:  "Ziggy" is one of the wake words that the Amazon Alexa digital assistants can listen for.  "Ziggy, what's the weather tomorrow?"

Yeah, I referenced that final closing notes slide in the comment before yours (the <tinfoilhat> one).. Pretty cool about Alexa, though.

/I have a Samsung and, well, don't make its AI assistant angry. You wouldn't like it ― when it's angry.
