    Yeah I remember when he leaped into a wheelchair bound war vet with no legs and at some point he stands up and he appears to be floating in mid air or how about the one where he's a chimpanzee at Nasa?
    And yes, that happened.

    The one where he's re-re-retarded hasn't aged well

    Can someone direct me to some Quantum Leap lore that explains it as this is fucking bullshit. Why does he have to dress like them if he's a hologram?

    What an awful start to the day.

    Well, according to the last episode it was all God doing it anyway so who knows.

    I can clear this up.

    Sam is a galaxy mind scientist, but for some reason wasn't working on curing death but instead time travel, but ever since he stepped into the Quantum Leap Accelerator....he vanished.

    Massive womanising misogynist (apparently this is a thing) Al is a hologram that only* Sam can see and hear. Al works with Sam despite being unable to do any science, work a computer or not smoke cigars IN THE FUCKING CLEAN ROOM.

    The people whose bodies Sam leaps into are kept in a Rape Chamber in the future, against their will by Al, we never really learn what goes on in there but I think it would be a plausible reason why Sam has 'Swiss Cheese memory'; it is probably PTSD.

    Sam has to leap into different people's timelines to set historical 'wrongs' right. There is also an evil leaper.

    The whole show is like a Michael Crichton Bible bash (which is a hologram) inserted into ostensibly a sci fi show.

    5/10

    * - also kids, dogs, people with learning difficulties, mad people, the evil leaper and ghosts

    Hang on, if God the Bartender did it, wasn't there an episode where Sam was Lee Harvey Oswald and went through with shooting JFK because Reasons anyway?

    He quantum leaps into a diner and meets god. He asks god why he canít go home and god says itís because he doesnít want to, so he carries on roundhousing forever.

    Tbf, itís not totally out of the blue. At points we meet his counterpart Ďthe evil leaperí who is implied to have been sent out by Satan to wrong rights.

    But the evil leaper isn't actually evil, in a plot twist.

    I reckon Sam is Jesus

    Again sorry to push on this but why would he have to dress in drag unless he was actually inhabiting the bodies? And the Sam we're seeing is just in his mind's eye. It's just not fictionally plausible to have them as some kind of hologram.

    Sam isn't a hologram. I don't know how this became canon.

    He's a roundhouse kicking, ladies skirt wearing badass Jesus

    I still have a soft spot for Quantum Leap. It gets shit for not being PC but it was very progressive really for it's time.

    Great show.

    The Morning Show S1 (Apple TV+)

    Watched more out of boredom than interest but - a few heavy handed moments and eye rollingly unbelievable scenes aside - it was really really good. Effective handling of (some of) the nuance around #MeToo, decent casting, and some really uncomfortable moments. Popcorn level fish out of water story wrapped around the whole thing which was OK, and brought the humour to offset the more serious moments.

    Not sure wtf they go with the second season but I'd watch it.

    8/10
    We just finished this and absolutely loved it. Anniston, Witherspoon and Carrell are all great - but it's Billy Crudup who steals every scene he's in with charisma to burn.

    The season finale was hugely satisfying too - not something you can level at many shows at the moment.

    It looks like season 2 is Corona-delayed
    Yeah, Billy boy was very very good. I wasn't sure where they were going with the. character - reckon Season 2 might be very interesting in that regard!

    That might be all we get though. Apart from the fact I'm not sure it has enough legs to go more than the ordered two seasons - as a story I mean - we also don't know how "loyal" Apple will be to their new shows.

    Wait are we saying Sam is a hologram, or the people he becomes are holograms?

    No they do in fact swap physical bodies, however, as the wiki states:

    "There is an aura around Sam, which makes others, except for the ones listed earlier, see Sam as the one he has leaped into."

    The ones 'listed earlier' are:

    'animals, small children, the "mentally absent", and people near death'.

    So a few EG forumites could probably see him too.

    Sam is his own guy, but to everyone else, hes a different person. Hence the Schrodinger's junk discussion. His dong seems to exist in a state of quantum flux until it is observed.

    Oh, wait... they dont swap bodies. The bodies go to 'the waiting room'. He doesnt leap 'into' the bodies, he swaps places.

    So the 'perception filter' would make the pee look like it was coming out of the fanny.

    Decks you should watch the episode where Sam and his hologram sex offender friend Al swap bodies and they have to send a letter in a post box to the future and Sam actually gets to go home in that episode (which is really dumb when you think about it).

    It'll really clear things up!

    So we're saying an actual physical version of Sam replaces the actual physical version of the person, and then either by some kind of hologram technology or mass hypnosis everyone just thinks he looks like Babe Ruth or whatever.

    So again I have to ask the question, why did he keep putting woman's clothes on?

    More to the point, how do they even fit? He swaps places with a 5 foot housewife and somehow manages to put on her sunday church outfit with no problems.

    As to why, hes 'that guy'. In every group of friends, there is one guy who's first reaction to everything is to drag up.

    Charity event? Drag. Stag night? Drag. Birthday party? Drag.
