hoping each leap would be his leap home

My productivity of the morning dissipated after lunch. It was probably all the yummy indian food that has made me tired and restless. Well, tomorrow is another day.

Of course this afternoon has not been a total loss, I’ve spent it discussing tv shows with my co-workers and boss.

We discussed buffy, superman, the dawson’s creek premiere tonight, the great space coaster, elctrawoman and dynagirl, land of the lost and dr. shrinker. . . of course nothing generated as much discussion as “Quantum Leap.” We all loved that show. Poor sam beckett leaping from life to life.

Sandy, my boss, said the best part of the show of the show was the heart-breaking opening, “Theorizing that one could time travel within his own lifetime, Dr. Sam Beckett stepped into the Quantum Leap accelerator and vanished …. He woke to find himself trapped in the past, facing mirror images that were not his own and driven by an unknown force to change history for the better. His only guide on this journey is Al, an observer from his own time, who appears in the form of a hologram that only Sam can see and hear. And so Dr. Beckett finds himself leaping from life to life, striving to put right what once went wrong and hoping each time that his next leap will be the leap home.”

Drew was absolutely horrified that we could repeat the entire last line from memory.

Yeah, I get paid to do this stuff.

    I loved Quantum Leap. I was pretty young when it was originally broadcast, and some nights it would be on late, after I went to bed. But for some strange reason I was able to pick up the audio feed from one of the local TV stations at the very bottom of my radio dial, so I would lie in bed and listen to Quantum Leap.

    When the TV show Sliders was popular a couple years ago, I could never under why everyone was making such a big deal about it. It was just a cheap rip off of Quantum Leap! 🙂
