I’ve been happy writing for the NBC blog, but I’m reaching the point where my own principles are at risk of being sacrificed. It was 16 years ago that I vowed to one day track, hunt down, and, well, if not kill, seriously bother the person responsible for cancelling “Quantum Leap.” I should be using my new association with NBC to collect intelligence for this mission, yet to date I have not. I have taken their money and provided them with my writing services as if they hadn’t discarded one of my favorite shows of all time with nothing more than a hastily-put-together and ultimately unsatisfying series finale. “Dr. Sam Beckett never returned home.” Ha! You may as well have told me that Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny were involved in a murder suicide. Jerks.
I say they should bring back “Quantum Leap” today. Bakula and everyone. Well, Dennis Wolfberg is dead, but I always thought it was funnier when Al talked to Gooshie offscreen anyway.
