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). Quantum Leap: The Color of Truth finds Sam inhabiting the body of an elderly African-American man as he faces adversity in the Southern United States of the 1950s.
