Terrific Premier to the Final Season
15 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I feel compelled to review this episode after reading the previous reviewer's opinion. He clearly did not understand the point behind this episode and is most likely not a fan of the show. As someone who has seen every episode, I would like to present a more useful review.

This is an excellent episode. After 4 seasons, the creators of Quantum Leap have thrown Sam into almost every situation imaginable. This time, they put him into a historical figure whose actions we are familiar with. In previous episodes Sam taught Chubby Checker the Twist, Michael Jackson the Moonwalk, and Buddy Holly the lyrics to Peggy Sue. We can't prove he didn't. But in this case, we know what Lee Harvey Oswald did. We know that JFK was assassinated. There is no way Sam can stop that. Part of the point behind this episode is simply to refute Oliver Stone's movie. Stone hypothesized that Oswald was part of a larger conspiracy. Quantum Leap looks at it as Oswald acting alone.

So why did Sam jump into Oswald? What can Sam change about the events of that day in Dallas? That is why we watch. It was a very well-made episode and I highly recommend it. Please ignore the previous reviewer's thoughts to the contrary.
