Plot Summary

Doctor Sam Beckett led a group of top scientists into the desert to research his theory that a man could time travel within his own lifetime. Unfortunately, in order to save his funding, he was forced to enter the accelerator prematurely and vanished. He then found himself in someone else's body with partial amnesia. His only contact from home is Al, a holographic image only he can see and hear. Setting right things which once went wrong, Sam leaps from life to life, hoping each time that this is the final leap home. Written by Kevin

Edit
Trivia Scott Bakula ad-libbed the line "Oh boy!" at the end of the first episode. The producer liked it so much, that it became the signature final line of each episode, as Sam finds himself in a new body. See more »
Goofs 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 Another Mother - September 30, 1981 (1990) 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).
