Overview

Synopsis

Reluctant time-traveler Dr. Sam Beckett (Scott Bakula) certainly gets a workout "leaping" from one person's body to another during the inaugural season of Quantum Leap -- and so, by extension, does Sam's holographic observer-advisor, Al (Dean Stockwell). The first episode, "Genesis: September 13, 1956," was originally telecast as a two-hour movie, and has since been seen in a 90-minute version, and divided into two separate episodes for syndication. In this installment, Sam leaps into the body of a test pilot with a pregnant wife and then becomes a minor-league ballplayer (though not, it should be noted, in the 90-minute abridgement). Subsequent episodes find Sam coming face to face with the girl he almost married back in 1972, and also inhabiting the bodies of a boxer, a veterinarian, a teenaged hot-rodder, a black man in 1950s Alabama, and a Bogart-like private eye who, D.O.A. fashion, is investigating his own murder. And in one of his trickier "assignments," Sam becomes a mob hitman...who has been hired to kill Dr. Sam Beckett! ~ Hal Erickson
