Watchseries; Wow!! I'm an old fashioned TV buff and fan of the original TV Quantum Leap series! I half heartedly went into watching this show expecting a bad knock off ... with a bad imitation of Sam Beckett and Al. But, after five minutes of really getting into the plot, sheesh ... I'm impressed! I know that some bigoted factors in this country will never get past their racism, but this cast is excellent and the story picks up excellently as well. It feels right, and if America can't see that, poot them who are IQ deficient!!! I mean, it's a new century and new players, writers, and producersnon an idea that deserves another run!!!

Quantum Leap watchseries. With an amalgamation of all seventy five genders right out of the gate it feels like another venture into the realm of woke flops. It misses the mark for inclusion and instead alienates the majority of viewers that enjoyed the original. It lacks something the original had that made the viewer feel invested in not only Sam, but the subject of each episode. The call back to the original is limited to basically Sams name. Sam creates the Quantum Leap program only to get lost in time and that's all we get? Maybe it will be pieced out in future episodes, but it's pretty disappointing so far. The buddy cop relationship between Sam and Al is replaced with the romance of a married couple and as of the first episode the show lack the comedic element that relationship provided. It just doesn't measure up.
I was skeptical of this show. I only started watching it because nothing else was on. The story picks back up 30 years later after physicist Dr. Sam Beckett entered the Quantum Leap accelerator and disappeared. A new team is on a mission to restart the project with the goal of figuring out the machine. I don't like the original, so when I saw a preview for the remake, I thought it was only going to be worse, because remakes are often crap. I must say, I'm not a fan of science fiction, but I loved this!! I was quite surprised. Pretty solid acting. Loved the diversity of the cast. For people who think political correctness is ruining society, they'll probably dislike this remake. It might be too woke for them. I'm glad to see TV shows using actors/actresses of different races and gender identities. What the anti-woke people fail to realize, is everybody in the world is not white and straight. It's a reflection of what society actually looks like. I did take off 1 star because of the characters' outfits and wardrobe - it didn't seem like any effort was put into making the people's appearance mirror the time period of the episode's setting. For example, when Dr. Ben (Raymond Lee) goes to a fancy party, he's supposed to be in the 1980s, but the people look like they're in 2022! But I'm willing to watch other episodes. I hope it doesn't get idiotic or hard to follow.
I loved the original show growing up and am so glad they decided to continue the story rather than just remake it, although some 1 star reviewers on here are calling it a remake which makes me wonder what they actually watched...Sure we no longer have Al (Sam could well turn up at some point) but the show still has a similar feel and flow. Raymond Lee seems like a very capable lead man and I think he has what it takes to carry the show.Overall, I found it fun, entertaining and intriguing. There are several nods to the source material and although it has just started, there are many interesting directions the show can go in while still bringing its life affirming messages about changing history for the better.The only downside for me is that the show is just finding it's legs and perhaps has a little too much exposition to try and catch us all up. Other than that a brave and enjoyable first episode which I hope becomes well-loved so we get a proper ending one day without another cancellation.Good job and more please!
I was excited to hear about this project and it was okay, but this first episode didn't really get me excited like the first time I watched the original QL pilot.I think it has potential though. I wanted to see more of the story surrounding Ben -- the way the old series would be mostly set in the past and Al would just pop in now and then. This switches back and forth between the present and past a lot, so I didn't feel like I got involved in the story that Ben was meant to be 'fixing' in the past. The focus seemed to be more centered around the present and Ben's relationship with his wife, etc.I'll keep watching, hoping my next leap will be the leap home.
I am not into remake of television series but I thought I would give Quantum Leap a chance. Boy was I right, this series is awful, uninteresting, and boring. The lead actor is not appealing and force diversity and transexualism is being shoved down our throats.Please don't waste your time watching this crap. The storyline in my opinion doesn't make sense. I want my 60 minutes. Back. It seems, the Networks are putting anything on television these days. I prefer to watch cable Networks or premium Channels like HBO-Max and Starz for better quality series and movies. I have given up on NBC to produce good quality series with the exception of Chicago Med & Chicago P. D.
