    Quantum Leap: “I’m fine, Valerie”

    After another inexplicable break following the too long winter break, we finally had Quantum Leap back this week, in a quirky kinda-sorta-not-really-a-timeloop episode that delivered down the stretch. We had Ben leaping into different people at the sight of a renewable nuclear energy project. It was good to have Robert Picardo on board as Dr.…

    Quantum Leap: The show may have broken Addison

    That’s what I was thinking watching this week’s new episode of Quantum Leap come to a close after Ben figured out that it was not UFOs, but a secret military operation that drugged a young girl and put her in a coma while framing her friend. This is because we don’t know what Ben is…

  • Quantum Leap: Why Ben should just give up and quit leaping

    Quantum Leap: Why Ben should just give up and quit leaping

    “Why even bother going on at this point?” That’s the question I was asking after watching this week’s episode of Quantum Leap, where we learned that Addison had moved on when Ben went missing for three years. I took one look at Raymond Lee’s brokenhearted face and honestly questioned why he even did all this…

    Quantum Leap: What the “Alias” time jump could mean for the story

    In the early 2000s, “Alias” the super spy action drama that made Jennifer Garner a star, aired it’s second season finale with a cliff hanger that involved hero, Sydney Bristow, in an epic fight that left her unconscious and waking up almost two years later to a different world. Now, the time jump has become…

    Quantum Leap: Leap to the Future

    Quantum Leap was back this week with the penultimate leap ahead of the first season finale for the renewed show. While we do understand that we’re getting a season 2, it does make the closing events of this particular leap no less important. And let’s talk about what was an enjoyable filler leap, as Ben…

  • Quantum Leap: Portland restaurant leap is a sweet but filler episode

    Quantum Leap: Portland restaurant leap is a sweet but filler episode

    Thank goodness, we know that we’re already getting another season of Quantum Leap. I would be concerned about the lack of movement forward after this week’s new episode. And after NBC pulled this episode from last week’s schedule (story HERE), we had some ground to make up. But, while “Family Style”, which saw Ben jump…

    Quantum Leap: Attempting to explain the “leaper behind the wheel”

    Quantum Leap aired a very kind episode this week regarding a family, and ultimately a school, coming together to protect and ultimately save the life of one of their own. Our most recent leap, which took place in 2012 was full of modern references we can all remember, and Ben leaping during a mid-jump celebration…

    Quantum Leap: Time loop episode an opportunity for answers

    After some inexplicable time off, in addition to its winter break (thanks NBC), Quantum Leap is returning with a new episode this week. It looks like Quantum Leap is opting for a fan favorite among TV and film fans. The time loop. Monday’s episode. “Leap. Die. Repeat” a play on the original title to Tom…

    Quantum Leap: What’s Working. What’s Not.

    Quantum Leap is currently on a winter hiatus in the middle of its pivotal and plot heavy first season (thanks NBC), but despite the disservice the network is giving it, the show has a lot to like and also a few things not to like. The fact that I’m a die hard fan of the…

    Quantum Leap: San Fran 89′ World Series Quake and “Leaper X”

    Quantum Leap was back again this week, and we got a leap that many of us may have been alive for. This is one of the neat aspect of fans of the original show. We get to see events we actually remember, portrayed on screen. This week it was the San Francisco Earthquake of 1989…
