Quantum Leap 5

Television doesn't get much better than this show. I enjoyed it when I was a child, and it's just as, if not more, amazing now that I'm an adult. It's got everything: action, romance, drama... everything. There's no way that you're going to watch every episode in the series without shedding a few tears.

In addition, the last season really kicked it up with the "leaps". From leaps into Elvis Presley to Lee Harvey Oswald (that one was intense), the last season was incomparable. I swear though, the entire series was amazing. If you missed out on it, shame on you. There's no way a person can watch a few episodes of this series and not automatically be hooked.

Great ending as well. I'll always remember Dr. Sam Beckett and Al :)

I recently watched several episodes that are available online at nbc.com and remembered why I was fond of watching the reruns as a younger child. Bakula and Stockwell make a great pair, each episode is fresh and new (although there are some definite strong episodes and definite weak ones), and you know you are in for a good time. It is too bad the show didn't run longer.

I loved this show. It was something different every week and Scott Bakula and Dean Stockwell were appealing enough to carry the show with just two regular charecters. As with any time travel show, if you examined it too closely you would find problems, especially since he was actually leaping into other people's bodies. If you just wanted to sit down and watch an entertaining, enjoyable show, there weren't much better.

"Pigs in space" science with a cast that looked like they'd been recruited out of the extras pool and scripts that appeared to be written by the producer's half-witted nephew.

I tried to never miss this show ~ probably because Scott Bakula was so darn good-looking!!  Actually, some episodes stand out really well with me (even after almost 20 years).

Overall a fine show. Dean Stockwells' womanizing character was tiresome though. The stories were well written and enlightening for the most part.

Clearly one of Donald Bellisario's better creations, I always enjoyed "Quantum Leap". I never watched this series during its original run, but I got hooked on the show during reruns some years back. The time travel premise allowed for varied plots, and the screenwriters could incorporate historical references (albeit with some liberties) with which viewers could readily identify (e.g. the Kennedy assassination). Scott Bakula (Dr. Samuel Beckett) brought enough humanity to the main character, though Dean Stockwell's (Rear Admiral Albert Calavicci) comic relief got tired on occasion. Nevertheless, each episode usually had an interesting plot twist (i.e. the fix wasn't always as the characters initially determined), and that feature was also an asset for the series.

My favorite show of all time. I have always been fascinated with time travel. Most time travel in movies/series have to do with 1 plot in 1 location (after the time travel). This series aired 97 maybe 98 episodes and everyone of them was in different locations and time periods. A classic, anyone how rates this show lower than a 4 has obviously never seen it.

It's a great show with a usually great story line. It was unique then, and is still fairly unique even by today's standards. I watch the re-runs from time-to-time and still enjoy it.

This was a great show with a interesting twist on an old story. Sam a guy lost in time with the only link to his time is a hologram of his friend and co-worker. He has to make things right every time he leaps through time. A great concept and a wonderful show with good storys and great acting.

One of my favorite shows of all time! It mixed humor, drama, and history in a way that it was very entertaining and very rarely, if ever, boring. Name any show today that can do that (I can hear the crickets chirping). This show should've gone on longer than Law and Order, a show not nearly as great as QL. There'll never be another like it!

'Quantum Leap' was one of my favorite shows ever as many like me followed the time-travel adventures of Dr. Sam Beckett and his guide Al, weekly. This show had it all as it was the epitomy of sci-fi and drama, mixed in with a little sense of humor here and then. But what made this show one of the greatest of its time was how it somehow brought out the child in us all, and triggered the dreams of time-travel for making things, which may have gone so wrong, so right. Maybe it did rekindle a nostalgia for which 1950s shows like 'Lost in Space' and 'Twilght Zone' earlier had. Whatever it was, this show was wonderful!

My favorite show to end the 80's and start the 90's. Could be funny at times. Scott Bakula did one of the best acting jobs ever as Sam Beckett. Two future stars got their start on Quantum Leap: Jennifer Aniston (was on an episode in the last season)and Patricia Richardson (eventually plays the wife on 'Home Improvement'.

This is one of my favorite TV shows of all time. NBC really screwed with this show and that is a damned shame. The science fiction aspect is cool but I like the drama, infused with humor, as well as the excellent interpersonal relationship that Scott and Dean have on screen. You cannot fake that. Excellent show.

The best TV series ever! Definitely my favourite of all time. The writing was on the whole excellent, the stories thought provoking, sad and funny, but most of all the acting was superb. Both Scott Bakula and Dean Stockwell deserved all the plaudits they earned and then some. A great shame that the show was cancelled and the opportunity to make a film never taken. QL rules OK
