Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
Premiering on NBC in 1989 and continuing for five seasons, Quantum Leap gained a cult following for its ability to balance the qualities of science fiction with the hour-long television drama format. Each episode features a different adventure as Sam Beckett (Scott Bakula) leaps through time, into different bodies, hoping to someday leap home. Along the way, Sam rights wrongs of the past with help from his hologram companion, Al (Dean Stockwell). In Quantum Leap: Catch a Falling Star Sam leaps into a stage actor during a 1979 performance of Man of LaMancha. Guest stars include Janine Turner and Ernie Sabella.
