Josh Jones mapped out every leap from every episode of the classic sci-fi show Quantum Leap. Jump with Dr. Sam Beckett and his hologram pal Al all over the world again as he tries to find his way back to his own home, his own time, and his own body.
Each map marker includes a summary of the episode, and the map has a quotation from show creator Donald P. Bellisario:
Being thrust into a life to “put right what once went wrong” was such a worthy endeavour that one couldn’t feel sorry for Sam Beckett no matter how difficult the leap. However, I did feel sorry for Scott Bakula, since he had to prepare for one leap while filming another, i.e. play a broncobuster and between scenes learn to fly the high wire.
I wrote “Oh, boy” on the second page of the pilot script when Sam rolled over to find a pregnant woman in bed with him. Of course, Scott’s delivery had a lot to do with making it a catchphrase. It’s difficult to name a favourite episode or leap… there are so many really good ones, such as MIA, The Leap Home, What Price Gloria, Mirror Image and, of course, Lee Harvey Oswald, which was the only leap that was based on a real event: the assassination of JFK. It took me quite a while to figure out how to make that work so that it was believable, since Sam obviously couldn’t save Kennedy’s life. I didn’t know until the last minute how the series would end or if it would end.

Whose house? Nancy’s house. The Speaker stopped a speech to explain what “exculpatory” means to the national dolt.

The more you use your computer, the more it becomes possible for others to use it too. Where there are anti-virus systems, there are hackers looking for a way to get around them. That’s why it’s important to get software that doesn’t just passively scout for viruses in the background. The folks behind GlassWire have […]
Knowledge is power. It’s a cliché, but sometimes things turn into a cliché because they’re true. If you’re making your way through the world of business and entrepreneurship, it only makes sense to read about the insights of people who have climbed that ladder before you. Trouble is, the modern workday doesn’t leave a lot […]
As much as some of us fear the loss of our jobs to robots, there’s one job we’re pretty sure they are welcome to: vacuuming. There’s nothing quite like kicking back and watching a robot vacuum do one of the most time-consuming tasks on the household chore list. And there are few ‘bots that do […]
