Looking For the Leap Home

Theorizing that one could time travel within his own lifetime, Dr. Sam Beckett, after leading an elite group of scientists to develop a top secret project known as Quantum Leap, prematurely stepped into the Quantum Leap accelerator and vanished . . .He awoke to find himself trapped in the past, suffering from partial amnesia and facing mirror images that were not his own, driven by an unknown force to change history for the better. His only guide on this journey is Al, the project observer from his own time, who appears in the form of a hologram that only Sam can see and hear. 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...In these pages you will discover:* How Don Bellisario got the idea for the show and pitched it to NBC.* What Scott Bakula and Dean Stockwell thought about the series and why they consider it to be one of the best and most cherished experiences of their lives.* About the incredible fans, who never gave up hope and sent over 50,000 letters and calla lilies to then NBC president Warren Littlefield to put the show back on the air on Wednesday nights.* Why episodes like "The Color of Truth," "Black On White On Fire" and "Running For Honor" had advertisers pulling out and NBC ready to pull the plug.* How Quantum Leap ended and a look back at all five seasons of the series.With the hope of a new sci-fi or movie on the horizon, let's take a bold leap forward into the adventures of Dr. Sam Beckett and hope that his next leap will be the leap that sends him home.
