That was a great show. Just saw the Bermuda Triangle ep. Does that really exist?
Even the nuts don't agree on its exact coordinates. It's basically a catch-all for "stuff that sank or disappeared in the Atlantic".
Yeah, the Bermuda Triangle is a bunch of woo.
And yes, Quantum Leap was a great show.
The only problem I have with the show was that the final episode was pretty weak. Loved that one where he leaped into Elvis.
I loved the one where he leaps home. But I can't find the Christmas one's
I was just going to say that! But I thought better of it; compared to crap endings like Seinfeld's (or Lost, etc.) it was just fine. Weak and wishy washy, but far from awful. And there are some interesting alternate endings out there.
The whole evil leaper thing was kind of weird too.
I now have my kid's saying "Oh Boy" all the time.
Luckily for me I skipped that entire season(s). (It did look pretty stupid from the commercials.) I got back to the show just in time to catch most of the finale with D-Day as the bartender god.
It's kind of hard to say it properly without the Bakulesque throat cracking....
Probably best to try and forget about that episode and never watch it again.
They got screwed on the final episode. They were told they were going to be cancelled the year before so they shot the finale based on the series ending at that point. They were renewed about 2 weeks before it was supposed to air. It literally sat on the shelf for a year. So it didnt involve anything that happened in the last season.
My personal favorite is the one where lighting strikes and they switch places sending Al back in time into a guy coming back from WW2. Their brains are merged and they are actng like each other. Al is wholesome and and Sam is a horndog.
I wish they finished it Properly. So sad about it.
I'm sure it probably is all the networks fault, but that ending wouldn't have been any better had it aired during the previous season. It just sucked.
You know, out of all the crap they've remade over the last 20 years, why has this gone untouched? I'm guessing there's a sequel somewhere in development hell...
Probably. I'm sure they'd end up fucking it all up though, sort of like what Michael Bay does with franchises from the 80's.
According to Scott Bakula during the TV Guide panel during the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con, show creator Donald Bellisario is working on a script for a Quantum Leap feature film.[SUP]
In 2004, Trey Callaway produced a screenplay entitled "Quantum Leap: A Bold Leap Forward" for the SciFi channel which would have been a spinoff show with Sam's daughter Sammy Jo Fuller as the leaper.[SUP][/SUP] However this project never went into production.
It's probably for the best.
