A reboot worth watching

I had my doubts about the new Quantum Leap series. I was a die-hard fan back when Sam Beckett was our time traveler. Reluctantly, though, I had to check out the new adaptation. I'm so glad I did! I love all of the characters, especially Ben. The stories are well done and engaging. I watch sitting on the edge of my seat for every next scene. I thoroughly enjoy getting to see a new setting and a new storyline every week while becoming endeared to each character along for the ride. Just as the original series captured my heart, so has the reboot. This show is amazing! Great job to the writers, actors, directors, etc. I'm hoping there are many more seasons to come.

Amazing re-run

Amazing show. It's just like the original.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

The entertaining reboot of the popular 1989 series offers the expected time travel adventures with some added mystery. Fans of the original will appreciate the connections it makes to the original narrative, technology, and some of its cast members. Meanwhile, it offers enough backstory to help those unfamiliar with the original appreciate the quirky, sometimes chaotic situations Dr. Song finds himself in. But unlike its parent series, the 2022 version of Quantum Leap divides its focus between Song's adventures and those of the team of scientists and military agencies associated with the overall project, giving it a contemporary feel despite its mild 1990s vibe.
