Quantum Leap is back, but is Ben?
October 4th, 2023 under Quantum Leap. [ Comments: none ]

When Quantum Leap ended its first season, we saw Ben (Raymond Lee) leap, and we were hoping he leaped home.

Tonight, the series is back at 8p on NBC, and we find out he didn’t go home. Instead, he lept in a plane that is about to crash in Russia in 1978. He and four other people are on a secret military mission to protect a piece of cargo at all costs, but he is all alone.

Because no one from Quantum Leap, including Addison (Caitlin Bassett), seems to be observing him. So he doesn’t know what he has to do to leap. And he needs the help.

They are alone in Russia, and no one from any time or place are coming to rescue them. So, they are going to have to do what they can to get the mysterious cargo to its destination. Is that what Ben needs to do so he can leap home? Or does he need to do something else?

You are going to have to watch this intense episode that proves even if you are down and out; you can still be a hero. At least, that is what these four men and one woman are going to try to do.

I have read that Quantum Leap is going to focus more on the leaps this season, and they definitely did that. Along with concentrating on the past, we are getting glimpses of present day. So, we are still in the loop about what is going on at home and what is going on with Ben, whose memories keep coming back. But are they enough for him to remember how to get home? We will have to tune in every week to find out.


NBC will air scripted shows in the Fall
July 19th, 2023 under NBC, Quantum Leap. [ Comments: none ]

While CBS, ABC, and Fox are heavy on unscripted, NBC will be airing scripted episodes in the Fall. Because they knew to plan ahead in case the strikes happened, which they did.

Returning series Quantum Leap, the concluding Magnum, P.I., and Transplant will be joined by newcomers Found and The Irrational in September.

It will be interesting to see if their ratings will surge against their competition. I am assuming they will because I don’t think the viewer can handle that much reality television.

8-10 p.m. – The Voice (Original)
10-11 p.m. – The Irrational (Original)

Quantum Leap’s season finale doesn’t disappoint
April 3rd, 2023 under Quantum Leap. [ Comments: none ]

When Quantum Leap ended last week, I was not happy with the ending. That is because Ben (Raymond Lee) leaped into the future, and Ian (Mason Alexander Park) was waiting for him after what looked like a post-nuclear war world.

However, tonight at 10p on NBC, it all makes sense. That is because Ian reveals to Ben why he started leaping. And with that, I cannot tell you anymore. I mean, I can. But I don’t want to ruin what happens because what the writers came up with was a perfect way to wrap up the season.


Can Ben save a plane from crashing on Quantum Leap?
March 27th, 2023 under Quantum Leap. [ Comments: none ]

Last week on Quantum Leap, Janis Calavicci (Georgina Reilly) told Magic (Ernie Hudson) that she believes that Ziggy the computer is the mole.

So tonight at 10p on NBC, Magic decides to turn off Ziggy so that Martinez (Walter Perez) cannot follow Ben (Raymond Lee) wherever and whenever he goes. However, it is a bad time to do it because Ben is on a plane that mysteriously crashes in the Atlantic Ocean in 1971.

Without Ziggy telling the team what to do, that means that Ian (Mason Alexander Park) and Addison (Caitlin Bassett) are flying as blind as Ben is on that flight where he is a stewardess.

Will they be able to save the plane from crashing? I cannot tell you that. What I can tell you is that the ending sets up for next week’s season finale. And I don’t like it.

And it sucks that it ended that way because tonight’s episode was the best one of the season. So when you are done watching it, tell me what you think of the ending.


Quantum Leap is finally back after that shocking cliffhanger
January 2nd, 2023 under Quantum Leap. [ Comments: none ]

It has been almost two months since we got a new episode of Quantum Leap, and it is finally back with a new episode tonight at 10p on NBC.

When we last left off, Ben (Raymond Lee) told Addison (Deborah Ann Woll) that the reason why he started leaping was to save her. Just as he said that to her, he leaped into a new person. Therefore, leaving her and us hanging.

Ben leaps into a bodyguard, who is protecting Carly (Deborah Ann Woll), a singer, in 1979. When Addison tells him to save her life, he does. However, that doesn’t keep her from being killed. So now, he has to do whatever he can to save her.

Much like he has to save his fiancée. Addison sees the parallels between Carly and herself, but Ben doesn’t. Will she be able to get through to him?

When Addison tells Magic (Ernie Hudson), Jenn (Nanrisa Lee), and Ian (Mason Alexander Park) why Ben is leaping, they start doing everything in their power to save her too. They even go as far as to find Al’s daughter Janis Calavicci (Georgina Reilly), to see what she knows about Addison’s fate. What she says will shock you. But I have said too much.

What I will say is that I am happy that the series is focusing as much on the leaps as they do on what is going on during the current time. I don’t know about you, but I am tuning in more for the leaps than the serialized content.

Since they have been doing a 50/50 mix, I think that the Sci-Fi Drama has really found its groove. Therefore, making it totally groovy!
