Quantum Leap
« on: April 06, 2008, 07:16:52 pm »
With Pax TV (Well technically they call it Ion now... ::) ) about to start showing reruns of quantum leap, I figured it was time to start up a topic about the series.

For those unfamilliar with the show:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantum_Leap_%28TV_series%29

Or if you want a longer explanation try a multipart documentary someone uploaded to youtube (probably better for those already familliar for the show):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=veg9KHGTkpw (Just start here and keep going)

And for those who prefer their explinations in the form of family guy gags, this fits it somewhat: http://thatvideosite.com/video/1368

Basically, It was about a man who looked remarkably like Scott Bakula jumping through time into other people's bodies, trying to make the past better. He was aided by a great Dean Stockwell impersonator in the form of a hologram who attemped to aid him on these missions.
It was amazing. Seriously. I'm glad after what seems to be a long dry period for the show, It's finally going to be rerun somewhere.

Up till now I haven't really had a reason to watch PAX since they took off early edition...


What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

It was a good show.  In the final episodes, did he finally make the leap home?

Spoilers - From what I can remember, No he never gets back home, he keeps leaping form the rest of his life.
