BTWF: Scott Bakula for Chevrolet
May 5th, 2022 under Before They Were Famous, Scott Bakula. [ Comments: none ]

Before Scott Bakula was a renowned scientist on Quantum Leap, he was a car salesman selling Chevrolets. What can you say about the 28-year-old’s performance in that 1983 commercial?


NCIS: NoLA will be no more
February 17th, 2021 under CBS, Scott Bakula. [ Comments: 1 ]

CBS has had a busy day. First, they picked up The Neighborhood and Bob Hearts Abishela. Then they cancelled Mom. Now, Deadline is reporting that NCIS: New Orleans will end its 7-season run on May 16th.

“Sad to end our love affair with this phenomenal city but so grateful for all the friends we made along the way,” Scott Bakula said. “I will miss the music. Big thank you to CBS for seven years.”

That means Bakula is freed up to do a Quantum Leap revival, so I am good with this. Not that there is one in the works, but there can be now.

Back to NoLA, the cancellation probably means that NCIS: Hawaii will be a go. What that means for NCIS: Mothership and Mark Harmon’s future with the drama, we will find out soon enough.

How do you NCIS fans feel about this news?


Quantum Leap had a different ending
June 4th, 2019 under Scott Bakula. [ Comments: none ]

When Quantum Leap ended, Al was reunited his true love thanks to his friend Sam going back in time, as himself, to tell her, her husband was alive. By reuniting the two, it changed all of their timelines leaving Sam lost in time, never to return home again.

That was not the only ending the time-traveling show filmed that season. They taped another one in case it did get picked up for another one. Which evil NBC did not do.

Finally, after 30 years we can see what would have had happened if evil NBC had said yes instead of no. Had it been renewed it would have ended with Beth and Al trying to find a way to bring Sam home. They know he is lost in time as himself because there is no one in the waiting room. Something that would have been a real game changer. Something we did not see.

With all of the reboots and revivals in the works, it gave fans hope that maybe Quantum Leap could live again. While we have new hope, Scott Bakula never lost hope. He told The Blast, “I keep telling people, Sam’s still out there.”

Hey CBS, you owe Don Bellisario. You need to give NCIS: NOLA, which should have been part of Bellisario’s legacy, a shortened season and let Bakula film another season of Quantum Leap with Dean Stockwell. Who else wants more of Dr. Sam Beckett besides me? Imagine what they can do now. Maybe he can make it so Donald Trump goes to Vietnam and does not get a deferment? The possibilities are endless. Let’s see a few of them.


BTWF ads: Scott Bakula for Shield Soap
November 29th, 2016 under Before They Were Famous, Scott Bakula. [ Comments: none ]

Before Scott Bakula wore a shield on NCIS: NoLa, he wore Shield Soap all over his body. He looks the same now as he did when he was 29 on that 1984 commercial.


BTWF ads: Scott Bakula for The Magic Pan
November 10th, 2015 under Before They Were Famous, Scott Bakula. [ Comments: none ]

Before Scott Bakula was able to leap through time on Quantum Leap, he was able to snap his fingers and make things appear or disappear for The Magic Pan. How cute was the 34 year old in that 1988 commercial?
