And David.. you missed the point of the original. Half the story WAS Sam (Bakula) trying to be the body he was in. That was a great deal of the interest... can Sam pretend to be a woman... a black man.. a baby... etc. Of course, with today's social intolerance.. an Asian man pretending to be black, female, etc MAY be seen as "appropriation" and offensive. I can't imagine they can pull off the magic of the original merely due to the current social climate and everyone being so frail and living in victimhood. Premier was alllllllll white.... so guess we'll see how long before some social group is up in arms because "Ben" is in a body other than a white male.

.. once again... the "must cast an LGBTQ actor" brings the entire show down because there's no ability to actually ACT. All I can say is all these LGBTQ actors better make all the money they can at this point because some day casting based upon lifestyle rather than acting ability is going to end once producers and network execs realize they are losing money and ruining shows due to it. I have nothing against LGBTQ individuals... but "actors" without the ability to actually act should not be getting work.

I wanted to like it but couldn't get through the first episode. If it makes it through one season, it will be a miracle. No story line, actors/actresses are dull.

I don't like it. I figured they would stuff 22 agenda in it STOP IT. It is a flop imo. Glad original was in 89 this continuation is an insult to them. Easy pass after Pilot

It's blatantly obvious they are trying to fit as many demographics into one cast as they can to be as PC as they can. Acting is horrendous. Story line is boring and I'm only half way through the first episode.

I was planning to watch this but by the end of the trailer, I changed my mind. Time travel is the easiest least original construct in all of tv and film. So I jump carefully into it.
I never watched the original either so I have nothing specific to say about it although it wasn't because of Bakula.

Hue - there's no need for a single leading actor.
We have mind and body swapping stories all the time. Rarely is the audience confused and detracted.
There's no time and money wasted. It's like casting different guest actors for each episode as in anthology type shows (e.g. Twilight Zone).
It may actually cost more to pay and coddle a single big shot leading man.
I think it's just a PR effort to get more viewers. But I'm not looking forward to THIS leading man wearing a diaper playing a baby.

It's not a reboot. They keep saying "reboot" it is a continuation. It is supposed to be the future from the original. I'll watch it and then give an opinion. Maybe we'll get lucky and it won't suck balls.

yet again another reboot as they have nothing new in ideas to offer the public just make money who cares the content is so old..

Davis Wood - using different actors for each leap would be the extremely stupid behavior as you put it. The money and time wasted on casting unlimited main single episode actors. There would be NO lead actor and would completely detract from the premise of the show, that it is 1 person bouncing around time. With that being said, I don't think it will last past season one.
