Quotes

Sam: Ziggy?
Ziggy: Yes, Dr. Beckett?

The Leap Back , perfect leaping Episode .
24 September 2007 | by rkallaoSee all my reviews

This was Quantum Leap at It's best , especially the switching personalities of Sam and Al , that was great , and seeing where it all happened , finally seeing all the characters in Sam's life . And seeing Sam's wife too, Donna ,beautiful lady and a most beautiful actress that portrayed her as well, Mimi Kuzyk was or is a beautiful actress as well as gifted and talented too .

Quantum Leap , like MASH , Star Trek , and Sliders , were great TV as well , they were what science fiction and comedy was about , . Let's hope the new Journeyman on TV this fall does as well . Too bad Battlestar Galactica is going off the air, that was perfect science fiction and drama combined . So long to everyone on Battlestar Galactica . Thankyou also .
