On this day:
At 26th March of 1989, the TV series "Quantum Leap" premiered on NBC. "Quantum Leap" is an American science fiction television series that originally aired on NBC for five seasons, from March 1989 through May 1993. Created by Donald P. Bellisario, it starred Scott Bakula as Dr. Sam Beckett, a physicist who leaps through spacetime during an experiment in time travel, by temporarily taking the place of other people in order to correct historical mistakes. Dean Stockwell co-stars as Admiral Al Calavicci, Sam's womanizing, cigar-smoking companion and best friend, who appears to him as a hologram. The series features a mix of humor, drama, romance, social commentary, and science fiction.

'Quantum Leap' was a show way ahead of its time as far as network dramas go. A show that started in the late 80's and aired through the early 90's dealing with time travel. Before then all of the TV dramas were all cop, doctor and lawyer type of shows. 'QL' combined drama, science fiction, action and comedy at times.

Despite its short run (March 1989 - May 1993), 'Quantum Leap' is nevertheless one of the most memorable series in television history. Although the show borrows from a concept employed in other realms, such as 'Highway To Heaven' (with its theme of a mysterious force interceding to transform a single life), it adds a unique twist by utilizing elements of science fiction.

Created by Donald P. Bellisario (creator of 'Magnum, P.I.', 'JAG', and countless other hit shows), 'Quantum Leap' developed a loyal cult following, making its short network run all the more difficult to understand. The series had an easy going charm and mixed humour, drama, social commentary and nostalgia which gave it broad appeal. There tended to be little science fiction outside its conceit.

'Quantum Leap' stars Scott Bakula as Dr. Samuel "Sam" Beckett, a cutting-edge experimental researcher in the field of physics. Developing a theory that an individual can travel throughout the span of his life, Beckett builds the Quantum Leap Accelerator and uses himself as the test subject. But rather than traveling within his own lifetime, Beckett finds himself mysteriously transported into the lives of various individuals, each of whom faces a problem Beckett must rectify (thus changing history for the better).

When he does, he can make his next "quantum leap" (which he hopes will restore him to his pre-experiment self). Aiding Beckett on his various missions is Rear Admiral Albert "Al" Calavicci (Dean Stockwell), one of the quantum leap experiment observers who periodically appears as a hologram in order to communicate with Beckett. With each new episode, Beckett finds himself in a new body, facing new circumstances, with a new mission he must decipher and complete if he ever hopes to return home...

The variety and humanity of the show is what makes it stand above the others. Some episodes are light and humorous, when others are darker, even tragic. Some conclusions are bittersweet, and help the main characters to evolve slightly, but regularly throughout the show. What helps even more is the fantastic chemistry between the two main characters.

Scott Bakula and Dean Stockwell have found the role of their lives, delivering touching, funny, overwhelming performances, sometimes in the course of only one episode! They're brilliant, as well as the writing, and art direction who recreates every decade from the 50's to the 80's (and sometimes beyond!) perfectly.

In each episode, a different cast of guest characters appears, mostly the ones that Sam replaces with his leaps. Several other additional characters are referred to regularly throughout the series, but are mostly unseen. The theme for the series was written by Mike Post. It was later re-arranged for the fifth season, except for the series finale episode, which featured the original theme music. Scores for the episodes were composed by Post and Velton Ray Bunch.

A soundtrack album was first released in 1993, titled "Music from the Television Series Quantum Leap", dedicated to John Anderson, who played Pat Knight in "The Last Gunfighter." It was released by GNP Crescendo on CD and cassette tape. Innovation Publishing produced a series of comic books which ran for thirteen issues from September 1991 through August 1993. As with the television series, each issue ended with a teaser preview of the following issue and Sam's exclamation of "Oh, boy."

Overall, this is an amazing and imaginitive show for anyone interested in the "body switching" genre, science fiction, or fantasy. Watch this show, you will never be disappointed!

Now that the AC3 codec patents have expired, I wonder if MX Player is going to readd it back so we don't have to install custom codecs from XDA anymore.
