QUANTUM LEAP: SEASON ONE
Starring: Raymond Lee, Caitlin Bassett, Mason Alexander Park, Nanrisa Lee, and Ernie Hudson
Creator: Donald P. Bellisario
Given that OG Quantum Leap is my all-time favorite show, I had to give the rebootquel a chance, even as a person who generally turns his nose up to network television. Overall, it’s fine. It offers the same optimistic view of the world as the original, but I realized nostalgia is doing the heavy lifting on my love for the 90s version. While Raymond Lee and Caitlin Bassett are serviceable, they are no Scott Bakula and Dean Stockwell. The new series is more serialized and spends time diving into Project Quantum Leap lore, which is interesting, but not quite interesting enough that I’ll return next season.
