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

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?


Oh boy, Dean Stockwell quantum leaps over to NCIS:NOLA
October 16th, 2014 under CBS, Scott Bakula. [ Comments: none ]

If you are like me, then you are still missing Quantum Leap. We are not going to get the show back with new episodes, but we are getting the next big thing. That’s because we are going to see Sam and Al together again on NCIS: New Orleans.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Dean Stockwell will guest star on the season’s biggest new show sometime next month. EW says he “will play Tom Hamilton, a proud and spirited retired New Orleans cop who still has his wits about him. When confronted by investigators about a murder 40 years ago, he arrogantly pushes back using his knowledge and experience. Tom Hamilton is also the father of Councilman Douglas Hamilton (recurring guest star Steven Weber).”
Sounds like his character could be back working with Scott Bakula again at some point during the show’s run, which is perfectly fine with me. Quantum Leap wasn’t only great because of the storylines, it was also great because of the chemistry between the two actors. Something I can’t wait to see when the two of them share the small screen together again after 21 years.
How excited are you for this TV reunion?
