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.)
We’re late with our blog post this week – blame Dennis. Since we recorded and dropped our episode Tuesday talking about the casting of Raymond Lee as Dr. Ben Seong, we learned later Tuesday that Ernie Hudson has been cast as Herbert “Magic” Williams. Then Wednesday, news break with the rest of the main cast.
We’re excited about all of this, but we’re particularly intrigued by the casting of Caitlin Bassett. This is will mark her television debut. She is former military. After leaving the armed forces, she studied at the Stella Adler Conservatory and was later selected for the ABC Discovers Talent Showcase.
Like we said, this week’s episode almost feels like old news, but take a listen as we talk about what we know about Raymond Lee, talk about the pros and cons of nostalgia for the old series, reveal our big “secret” (you probably already figured it out), and make some fun “fan wank” guesses.
