I enjoyed Quantum Leap when it aired on NBC although I don’t really watch it nowadays. I also have one issue of the comic and I will obviously review that on “Yesterday’s” Comic at some point. (And no, Sean, I don’t want to review the other issues. I didn’t stay as into the show as you have.) It was a good show but I just lost interest after the show ended.
For those of you who don’t know…you’re probably not going to get anything out of this posting, but Quantum Leap was about Dr. Sam Beckett, who created a machine that would allow him to travel within his own timeline but through the bodies of others. Aided by Al, his observer who could teleproject to Sam via a hologram only he could see and hear, Sam dealt with missing memories (including one episode showing he has a wife back home in the future, which is the declaration at the end of the episode that he was never returning home always bugged me) and had to fix what went wrong with these people’s lives. It is a good show and I do recommend seeing it.
But did you know that there is a scene that was filmed but never aired showing what Al’s life was like after a certain change in his life? Allison Pregler, formerly know as Obscurus Lupa on Channel Awesome and now host of Movie Nights, found evidence of this scene via found negatives and scripts. Here she pieces together how the show could have ended as well as some other interesting trivia.
