Promised Land – December 22, 1971

This week, we’re excited to talk about “The Leap Home, Part III”.

Wait. That’s not an actual episode. But that could well be the title.

Sam returns to his hometown of Elk Ridge, Indiana, during Christmas of 1971. Sam has leaped into Willie Walter’s Jr., a young man whose upbringing is not all that different from Sam’s. As Willie, Sam finds himself in a bank hold-up situation alongside his brothers, in an effort to get justice over a predatory loan where their farm is the collateral. Sam runs into familiar faces, and tries to right a wrong in his own life by way of helping the Walters clan.

We discuss the episode, go on a couple of justified “Star Trek” tangents, and talk a little bit about the possibility of Peacock’s teased reboot of the show.
