Quantum Entanglement: Ranking the Leaps

Season 1 of Quantum Leap had 8 episodes if you (correctly) count Genesis as a single 2 hour ep vs. a 2 part pilot. The 2022 reboot/continuation (referred to as “Season 6” below for convenience) heads into hiatus after an equivalent count of 8 episodes, so I thought it would be fun to stack rank…

Oh, boy! Quantum Leap Trailer Thoughts

I’ve been cautiously optimistic about the upcoming Quantum Leap reboot/continuation series since it was first announced. Now that the official trailer dropped yesterday and we’re a little over a week away from the premiere I’m getting amped. I honestly haven’t been this excited for the debut of a new TV show since the original QL…

More Red Letter Dates

The most famous red letter date in the history of time travel is November 5, 1955 from Back to the Future. Lesser known BTTF dates include: January 1, 1885 (Doc’s trip to the Old West) September 2, 1885 (Marty’s trip to the Old West) November 12, 1955 (Enchantment Under The Sea / Lighting vs the…

Ramblings VI

I seem to have hit another of those lengthy posting lags while the world gets in the way.  Ramblings time: Been digging the new Back To The Future Game from Telltale.  It’s essentially BTTF IV, starting off 6 months after the trilogy ends in 1986 and has Marty bouncing back and forth between 1931 and…

Ziggy for iPhone

I knew it was only a matter of time. Previously I’ve wished for an iPhone app that emulates the handlink from Quantum Leap. I even had Al using an iPhone-based Ziggy in my fanfic story for the Leap Back Convention, “Just Like Starting Over.” Ask and ye shall receive: Ziggy Lights-On The game itself is…

Ramblings III

Whenever I (legally) drive through a yellow light it makes me think of Back to the Future and how difficult it would logistically be to time driving through a lightning strike with such precision. Read a cool short story called “The Variant” by John August.  Well worth the 99 cent price tag.  And without giving…

Leap Back Convention Recap

Last weekend I attended The Leap Back 20th Anniversary Quantum Leap Convention.  Having never been to any type of fan convention before I didn’t really know what to expect.  Here are some thoughts: Highlights: “A Leap To Di For” A brand new fan-made episode of the show.  I admit I was a little skeptical about…

The Tweet Back

To date, I haven’t exactly been the model Twitter user.  I have it set to automatically send tweets whenever this blog or LB-DG.com are updated (via twitterfeed), but aside from that I’ve rarely touched it. But that’s going to change this weekend. As my Twitter trial by fire, I’m going to post periodic thoughts and…

The Story Behind The Story

As I’ve said before, I’m a better writer than I am a marketer.  That’s not to say I’m necessarily a brilliant writer, just that one skill outshines the other. On the Timely Persuasion website, I periodically play around with “The Story” section at the top in an attempt to get the best mix of marketing…

The Quantum Leap Connection

I pointed out a few times in the commentary posts that Quantum Leap was a big influence of mine.  It’s even specifically referred to in the book more than once.  What I haven’t talked about in depth is how Quantum Leap (and more specifically, Al the holographic observer) served as the genesis for the time…
