This is awesome news as I love Quantum Leap!

Al is a hoot.

"Running for Honor" and the first Evil Leaper stories were the best, but season 4 as I recall was a winner all around.

One fun factoid: The Commodore Amiga personal computer did the effects work! :thumbsup:

2. I loved Quatum Leap
I think the best thing was when they outwitted the censors. They had an episode where he was to leap into a gay person at a military college. The censors went ape shit so they altered the episode to make him more ambiguous. It ended up making an even stronger point about anti gay bigotry. Nothing like making censors look foolish. I will have to rent the DVD.

7. The gay episode is "Running for Honor"
Some didn't like it because it was political and everything, but I loved it. Double thanks to the censors. :evilgrin:

9. Yeah talk about biting yourself in the ass
At first I was so pissed that they had given in but then I watched it and was laughing out loud. I would love to see that episode again, maybe that season will make DVD some day.

12. The last season the netowrk killed it.
They changed times and the stories got to be weird. The only thing the last season missed was him leaping into Fonzie to jump the shark.

When it kept ot the original format, the show was awesome!
