When I was a child in the early 80′s, and back then KTV2 showed the latest blockbusters in a timely manner, there was this show where a guy, Sam, used to live in the shoes of someone from a different time and different problem and try and solve their problems.
The only thing I remembered was the guy’s name was Sam. I remembered the other guy who either timed him or enabled him to go from one place to another, and I remember loving the show to bits. Years later as I began to speak and understand English I remembered the show, the fascination that engulfed me while watching it, the different stories and lives and experiences.
I wanted to watch the show again, I really did, but I’ve searched high and low for its name to no avail. I always confused it with the show “saint” which also was shown at around the same time. Not until I was watching the latest episode of DHW that I recognized Bree’s lawyer as Sam from the show of my childhood! Only much older and more winkled!
Thanks to Google, 2 minutes later and I got the name of the show, Quantum Leap! Sam’s real name is Scott Bakula and his most noted role was actually that of SAm’s in Quantum Leap!
Needless to say I’m going to waste my entire weekend watching one amazing retro show insha2 Allah. Thank god I found it for I had been missing it terribly.
Do you remember Quantum leap?
