Ziggy's opening narration says that "only Sam can see and hear" Al which was thought to be true for the first season and for the first twelve seasons of season 2, but Sam and Al discover in Quantum Leap: Another Mother - September 30, 1981 that animals, very young children, the mentally disabled, and people near death can also see and hear him (as well as seeing Sam's true form).

I loved this show! It was amazing. I was almost crying when it ended. "THEY CAN'T LEAVE IT THERE!", I shouted. It is kind of sentimental and honest at the same time. Everything from the theme music to the inventiveness and unpredictabilty of it all makes it a truly classic show. I hope they make a movie of it some day. If they do it'll be a box office smash.
