In the 1980’s, a more innocent time when parachute pants were common attire and mullets were worn without ridicule, one television show about a time travelling scientist and his holographic, chain-smoking buddy left its print on our impressionable young minds.
Let me take you back, back to a time where shows started with overly verbose monologues like this one:
“Theorizing that one could time travel within his own lifetime, Dr. Sam Beckett stepped into the Quantum Leap accelerator, and vanished.
He awoke to find himself trapped in the past, facing mirror images that were not his own, and driven by an unknown force to change history for the better. His only guide on this journey is Al; an observer from his own time, who appears in the form of a hologram that only Sam can see and hear. And so, Dr. Beckett finds himself leaping from life to life, striving to put right what once went wrong, and hoping each time that his next leap, will be the leap home. ”Here is what we dragged from the cutting room floor. A selection of stills from episodes so awesome that NBC refused to show them in fear of people overdosing on pure joy.
