We watched “Her Charm”, where Sam leaps into an FBI agent protecting a woman from a vengeful drug lord. Of course he fallsies in lovesies (againsies). Leete and Kristen are especially silly. Please like us.
We’re talking S02E14, where Sam leaps into a promising young football player who has to help his best friend’s family overcome financial and emotional hardship by him getting a football scholarship. Also, there are some very confused/confusing cheerleaders in this episode. Hmm.
CW: Discussion of a brief scene involving sexual assault/harassment.
Sam leaps into the place of a mother of three, and he’s on a mission to save his son from a terrible tragedy. There are some ridiculous 80s teens, too. Leete and Kristen are obsessed with the very silly music in this episode.
CW: Discussion of scenes involving kidnapping/sexual predators targeting children.
Kristen and Leete watched Season 2, Episode 12 - Animal Frat. Sam leaps into a college kid who has to stop a disaster at school. And boy, are his frat brothers ridiculous. Is this what college is? Were we ever so young?
Sam leaps into a parapsychologist, and he’s got to solve a mystery involving a seemingly restless ghost. We talk all things supernatural. Leete gets skeptical. Kristen gets defensive. We rank the sexiness of different Frankenstein’s monsters. It’s a spooky party over here.
CW: Discussion of Gaslighting, Murder and Suicide.
Heads up - this episode features two theatre people talking about the theatre episode of Quantum Leap. Sam leaps into an understudy for the lead role in a production of Man of La Mancha. There is a lot of singing in this episode. Of Quantum Leap, and the podcast. Look out.
Sam leaps into a radio DJ in 1959, and there is a war raging against Rock and/or Roll! Only Sam can save the day! And make a lady fall in love with him, as always! Also, we have a serious contender for the Golden Shoehorn award in this one.
Sam leaps into a blind concert pianist who has to perform at Carnegie Hall…and solve a MURDER?! And patch up a mother and daughter’s relationship. And hoodwink a dog.
Sam leaps into 1961, and experiences life as a woman for the first time. Al can’t hide his attraction to this new Sam. They both have to keep Sam’s roommate from doing something desperate for the love of a married man. Leete thinks Kristen’s jokes are very funny.
(CW: Discussion of a scene with attempted suicide.)
Sam leaps into 1953, and trades place with a sailor named Charlie, who comes home from Japan with his new wife, Machiko. They face prejudice within the town and his own family. This was another tough one to watch. But, among all the terrible drama, why was there still time for a barnyard sex romp? What is going on??
Content Warning: Discussion of racism and racist acts/behaviour.
Dun dun dun DUUUUHHH - It’s the Oh Boysies! We discuss the best of the best, the worst of the worst, and the Scottiest of the Bakulas. Who wins? Who loses? Has Kristen been shrunk by a sorcerer and trapped in a small glass bottle? (On an unrelated note, apologies for the technical difficulties resulting in Kristen sounding like she’s been shrunk and trapped in a small glass bottle.)
