I'm not sure how I missed this gem but mi esposo introduced me to this show and now I'm hooked.
Quantum Leap stars Scott Bakula as Dr. Sam Beckett, a scientist who along with Al Calavicci created the Quantum Leap project, but as Sam says in the first season intro, his experiment went a little caca and now he is leaping from person to person at anytime in the past to right any wrong that was done. Unfortunately Sam's brilliant mind has gone Swiss Cheese and his memory is faulty, so he relies on his friend Al (Dean Stockwell) who appears as a hologram to help him out.
One of my favorite episodes so far is called the Camikazi Kid, in which Sam leaps into the body of a high school, pimple faced boy named Cam Wilson, shown below, notice the braces (love it!).
If you missed it the first time like I did, I heartily suggest you sign into Netflix and add it to your Queue and get watch Al and Sam's adventures, especially when Sam leaps into the life of a woman, I love the outfits they put him in. :)
Isn't he just darling!
