In the episode "Quantum Wyatt", Wyatt Quantum Leaps into different people's bodies. When he looks in the mirror, he sees the body of the person he leaped into. The is an obvious reference to the hit TV show, Quantum Leap (1989). Michael Manasseri, who plays Wyatt Donnelly, once guest starred in an episode of Quantum Leap - 'Return of the Evil Leaper' See more »
The fact that this dreadful series, a barren spin-off of John Hughes' classic 1985 teen comedy WEIRD SCIENCE, was ever given the green light is a testament to how in the 90s, people in the TV industry will do anything to make a buck.
It surprises me that a once-great director of Hughes' calibre would even permit this to be made. The acting in this show is nightmarish; original, interesting characters from the movie are reduced to two-dimensional caricatures; the scripts are horribly plodding and clumsy; and the name WEIRD SCIENCE is put to shame. It is a complete misrepresentation of the 80s. Thank God they've stopped making it.
Let's just hope they don't make a series out of PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES, another Hughes masterpiece.
