We continue our Revisited series with our review of Season 2’s “Disco Inferno”. Sam leaps into Chad Stone, a stuntman on a bad B-movie in 1976. This is great episode for a lot of reasons, most notably for its introduction of Sam’s brother, Tom into the Quantum Leap mythology.

If this whets your appetite for more talk about the episode, check out our original deep dive back in 2017

Honeymoon Express – Revisited

Listen here, or stream wherever you get your podcasts

This week, we’re here to give our capsule review of the season two premiere, “Honeymoon Express”. Almost serving as a soft reboot for the uninitiated, the episode sees Al fighting for the Project’s life back in the future while Sam, in the life of a NYC detective on his honeymoon in 1960, fights for the life of his new bride, Diane, against a psychotic ex-husband. Oh, and he also has to fight for his own moral code, as Diane is eager to consummate their marriage – with a man she obviously doesn’t know is not actually her husband.

We had a lot of fun revisiting this episode. For more, take a listen to our original deep dive of this episode back in 2017

Listener Mail – Why Wayne Won Tess, Why It’s Inevitable Sam/Scott Will Appear in the New Show, and What the New Show Means to Fans of the Classic

Stream here or wherever you get your podcasts

This week, we take a break from our “Revisited” series to read and respond to some listener mail.

– Nicky Sudyn talks about their experience listening to a Quantum Leap podcast hosted by “two tired dads”, and explains why Tess picking Wayne in “How the Tess Was Won” was the inevitable and right choice.

– Quantum Leap author Carol Davis gives her opinion on Scott Bakula kissing the underage actor, Holly Fields, in “Camikazi Kid”, and her thoughts as a writer as to why it is inevitable Sam/Scott will appear in the new series.

– Damon Sugameli reads an audio essay about his feelings about the new series and the legacy of the classic.

Play It Again, Seymour – Revisited

Stream here or wherever you get your podcasts

We’re back! It’s another installment of our continuing “Revisited” series as we plunge into the shadows and pulp of the season 1 finale, “Play It Again, Seymour”. After we get through our assessment of Sam’s turn as a shamus looking for the dropper who killed his partner, we slide on over to our overall rating of the season. Plus, we have some conversation about the revival series and what we know so far. We pack in a few other tangents and fun bits as Sam’s covid brain allows.

New Quantum Leap Series Officially Ordered & Camikazi Kid – Revisited

Stream here, or listen wherever you get your podcasts

Leapers, we’re back after an unplanned break (what else is new?)

This week, we’re talking about the news that the new pilot has officially been picked up to a series. We knew it would happen, but man, are we even more excited now!

We’re also here with our capsule review of season one’s “Camikazi Kid” – an episode that deals with the difficult topic of domestic violence, but still somehow manages to throw in just the right amount of comedy.

We give it our short review treatment and get a chance to revisit the episode after some spooky things creeped into our original review, which dropped on Halloween 2017.

Grab yourself a cheeseburger and a malt and give us a listen.

How the Tess Was Won – Revisited

We continue our journey revisiting episodes of the classic series in the lead up the revival with “How the Tess Was Won”. Where will Sam’s vetinary leap rank among our previously rated episodes of the first season? Does Sam’s shirtless post-digging up our rating? What about our dear boy from Lubbock with his guitar? What was his name? Pal? Pard? Bud- Oh, boy! Dennis and Sam start off on opposite ends of the spectrum with their opinions, but do they come to an agreement or will their ratings show a divide… All this and so much more, Piggie Suey!

Plus the usual updates from the project and even a few little tangents here and there. 

PLUS! 

We’re going to start answering listener mail as a regular part of our episodes. If you have a comment or question you want us to answer, send us an email to: fateswidewheelpodcast@gmail.com.

Leapers! We’re back with our second capsule view. This week, we’re talking about the series’ 2nd episode, “Star-Crossed”. 

We also discuss the latest news for the reboot pilot, and the exciting opportunities lie ahead for the new Quantum Leap fandom.

Oh, and hey, listen carefully (or even not so carefully), and you can tell the exact moment Dennis learned that a certain somebody slapped a certain somebody on a certain televised event. (Also, apologies, Dennis was playing with a new mic configuration, and he comes in a little hot this week.)
