A Kiss With History: Remembering Quantum Leap (2004)


“Every show was different. Every show was challenging and yet at the same time, that was kind of the delight.” – Scott Bakula

Number of Times Seen – 1 (18 Nov 2021)

Brief Synopsis – Documentary that interviews the 3 main people involved with the TV show Quantum Leap.

My Take on it – Quantum Leap is one of my all time favorite shows and after the recent passing of Dean Stockwell at age 85, I came across this documentary where he, Scott Bakula and Producer/Creator Donald Bellisario discussed their time on the show.

This was so fascinating to watch especially given the fact that it was made more than a decade after the show ended, yet these 3 people still had much to reminisce about their time on the show.

They are so insightful because they explain how the show eventually got made and also how each of them became a part of it.

They also talk about a lot of the behind the scenes aspects of the show which is great to hear about especially from the first hand knowledge of these three key players n the show.

The show was always unique since only two characters carry over from episode to episode and this helped strengthen the bond between these two actors which in turn helps make the friendship between the characters feel so much more genuine and realistic throughout.

I also loved hearing the stories from Bellisario how he was able to finally get this show green-lit during a conversation with then-NBC President Brandon Tartikoff.
