The sci-fi drama is off to a solid start.
October 10, 2022
NBC announced today that Quantum Leap's freshman season is getting a little longer. The network has ordered six additional episodes of the sci-fi drama, bringing its total to 18 for Season 1.
A continuation of the 1989 series of the same name, the show is off to a strong start for the network. Through its first three episodes, it ranks as this fall's top new show among adults 18-49.
Quantum Leap takes place 30 years after Dr. Sam Beckett stepped into the accelerator and vanished. Now, a new team led by physicist Ben Song has been assembled to restart the project to try and understand the mysteries behind the machine and the man who created it. But everything changes when Ben makes an unauthorized leap into the past, leaving his team behind to figure out why he did it.
Why can't all people just be who they are without someone having a problem with it? I mean, if we are forced to look at your gut hanging out every time you hit the Wal-Mart, why can't a flamboyant gay individual be themselves without ridicule? Also, why is "woke" a bad word to you? You enjoy being ignorant?
That said, it also suggests that he died on one of his leaps (either of old age or a leap that went wrong) - if they "fix" the ending, it would mean that all the people he helped after that final episode, would go back to their original miserable history - not sure I want the ending fixed.
The only "fix" I can see that would work, would be Ben meeting Sam, with Sam explaining why he hasn't and won't be returning home - possibly with Ben agreeing with him and continuing to leap himself.
YES! I have been waiting for that Plop!!!! Horrible ending. I want Sam to finally go home to be with his wife and daughter!!!!
