Q is for Quantum Leap


'Quantum Leap' was an American television series that ran for 96 episodes from 1989 to 1993, and featured quantum physicist Sam Beckett (Scott Bakula) leaping into a variety of different people in various points in history within his own lifetime. His only link with his own time was Al (Dean Stockwell), who appeared to Sam in the form of a hologram that nobody else could see or hear. An interesting show in terms of social commentary and nostalgia, the show leaves many questions about why Sam leaps open-ended, focussing instead on the message that a single person can change the world - one life at a time.
