TinaAlsGirl5: cool, Damon
#clara5: brain swiss-cheesed, can't remember how to write the words
SueJBakula: I have that problem all the time
Dman176: yeah, the most important thing for my sister was being away from home
Dman176: Skidmore wasn't her first choice, but we all think she'll be happy there
Dman176: she's 17 going on 30, I think
alsplacebartender: so what's been going on guys? we haven't met together since
January at the Stuart Fratkin chat and that was about four months ago
MikeKraken: no comment here...
Dman176: I wasn't at that chat :(
MikeKraken: too much to write. :P
TinaAlsGirl5: Just trying to survive the last days of high school
Dman176: been trying to keep busy with work, and writing stuff... nothing much
#clara5: I was at that chat, now I finished my studies for now and am working full
time in an office...
Dman176: and just glad that winter finally decided to move on
MikeKraken: speaking of ICQ, haven't seen you on since your birthday, Clara..
#clara5: I keep myself busy on the bus writing...
TinaAlsGirl5: I haven't even found time to begin any writing on my QL stories...
and I have no idea when I will
#clara5: well, wait a second
MikeKraken: I agree, Damon! It's a nice thirty degrees here today. :D
MikeKraken: Celsius, of course.. haha
TinaAlsGirl5: Oh, and... I believe that January chat was just before or just as I
was getting into the "Harry Potter" craze... well, it's full-on now
Dman176: I was going to say, "Poor Canadians" but I won't :b
#clara5: well, for me it's more like 20 degrees over here, but very humid
#clara5: why poor canadian *tries to look annoyed, but fails miserably*
MikeKraken: yeah, about 26 here, plus 4 for humidity.. i love it
Dman176: Out of curiosity, Joy, have you been reading the QL stories at least?
TinaAlsGirl5: Nope... no time
TinaAlsGirl5: I'm mad at myself, about it, too. I'm really anxious to catch up on
Dman176: when he commented on the weather, Clara, I meant it as a joke meaning,
it's warmer down here in NY
#clara5: well I for one am not complaining... we didn't have snow in montreal
#clara5: lol, I got it...
Dman176: you haven't read any at all, Joy?
MikeKraken: I think I'm up to Helen's first story... or Sue's...
Dman176: yeah, you were telling me that, Mike
TinaAlsGirl5: I think I read the first 6 or so of the season
Dman176: well, if I may... a little bit of plugosity... :b my next story is
supposed to go up this week, first of 3
#clara5: well, I for myself am too caught up with Star Wars to read Quantum Leap
right now... maybe later, but I don't need more distractions from my story than I already
have at the time
SueJBakula: you're in for a real treat when you do read, Joy and Clara
Dman176: and I'm still not even done writing the second one yet... yikes... almost
there though, wouldn't want to worry MJ
Dman176: that's why I haven't been around much
TinaAlsGirl5: I really gotta get started on my newest VS story... I've had it in
the works for over a year now, but haven't had the time to do much writing on it
#clara5: well, I will when I feel like it... I already read one some time ago, and
I didn't get it, so it kind of disappointed me into waiting until I felt like it again
Dman176: which one, Clara?
#clara5: well, it was something about Sam leaping to same Princess Anastasia
Dman176: don't remember if I asked you already, I have a tendency to forget
Dman176: hmm, that's not TVS
Dman176: I'm not familair with other fanfic
SueJBakula: anyone have any ideas? I have Jana on msn and she can't get into the
#clara5: no, you didn't ask 'cause I never told anyone before that I had read one
SueJBakula: Not ny story Clara, on The fan fiction forum?
Dman176: well, that must be something else, it's not the Virtual Seasons
alsplacebartender: not a clue on janna's problem
Dman176: don't know either, Sue
SueJBakula: A Leap Out Of Time?
alsplacebartender: you have to have java enabled and be logged in to the board
Dman176: hmm... I'm gonna try to get
onto my puter at home, it's almost 6:30 here
#clara5: I believe that was it,
thinking about it
Dman176:: dinner time soon, but I'll see if I
can stay on a bit when I come back
#clara5:: I agree with it being unusual, but I was a bit taken back by it... I
guess it was a weird first story toread
MikeKraken:: HB, Damon!
Dman176:: catch you guys in a little while
SueJBakula:: That isn't the TVS
alsplacebartender::If someone else can try and keep this (transcript) too, that
would be great
MikeKraken: I can do it> :P
SueJBakula: ok Damon, be quick LOL
#clara5: see you later, Damon
alsplacebartender: thanks mike!
Dman176: depends on if the puter at home is being used... could be in a hlaf hour
or so, we'll see
Dman176: ok, see ya in a few
#clara5: Sue, I can guarantee your story was good, just to weird for a first one,
found it on your site...
SueJBakula: ahhhh LOL
TinaAlsGirl5: brb--gotta go set my VCR to tape "A Wrinkle In Time"
MikeKraken: that a book?
MikeKraken: I remember reading it in grade 5 or something... haha
SueJBakula: most of my stories are 'unusual' teehee, my weird imagination
#clara5: and I will read more when I'm through with all the Star Wars stuff...
they're just not too compatible
SueJBakula: I haven't finished the 3rd one yet, TVS has sorta taken over

Neverreturnedhome: is that a dig
Neverreturnedhome: do youz all work on th eone story or how doz it work
MikeKraken: for the most part, we each write on our own...
Dman176: there are just a lot of developments that have happened this season that
have started to shakle things up a bit... and still to come to ;)
Dman176: MJ edits all of them though, so that if something doesn't match up right,
she corrects it to fit with continuity
SueJBakula: Mikey and I are in the beginns of one and I'm writing one with
Helen, plus a few others I have already started
Dman176: or at least, she tries to
#clara5: I'm back, but I'll have to leave when dinner starts soon, just when the
guest arrives, ;-(
SueJBakula: Janna still can't get in
Dman176: if someone writes something, like adding a new character or changing an
aspect of someone's chgarqacter or whatever, you have to run it by her first
#clara5: what unfortunacy (yes, I know that's not a word) that my parents decided
to make us eat at that very time
Neverreturnedhome: i didnt realise how ardcore you's all were
Dman176: it's ok, Clara, I usually eat around this time too
Dman176: which is why I said I'll be here and there
alsplacebartender: i don't know how to help janna :(
SueJBakula: she's logged in and had java enabled, I've told her to reboot
alsplacebartender: good call
Dman176: for the most part, um... neverreturned... most of the stories everyone
writes can be read on their own, I think... just like the way the original show was
#clara5: hehe, except the first and last episodes, of course
Neverreturnedhome: im sure the creator would be proud of you guys
Dman176: and a few others :)
Dman176: well, we try
Neverreturnedhome: is there any more news on this bold leap forward?
#clara5: and even if I don't know about it, I'm sure you do
#clara5: and that you succeed
Dman176: the story I have coming up is that thing I mentioned a while ago about my
own interpretation of... A Bold Leap Forward, I guess for lack of a better term
#clara5: *is in a good mood tonight*
Dman176: well, I don't really remember what post it was, it was a long time ago
when I first joined up
Dman176: my "bridge" between the old series and a new one
Dman176: just twqeaked a bit
Neverreturnedhome: *is knakered* its nearly 12am got work in five hours
#clara5: seems interesting
MikeKraken: sorry, I am making dinner... forgot to say BRB. haha
MikeKraken: yeah, we should get to work on that, Sue! :D

Dman176: sorry for the "plugosity" :b... I'll try to not bring it up anymore
Dman176: ah, he's here
alsplacebartender: Welcome Jarrett!
JarrettLennon: Thank you very much!
Neverreturnedhome: hello jarret
alsplacebartender: How are you this afternoon?
JarrettLennon: Doing quite well, thank you. Having a good day.
JarrettLennon: And how is everyone else today?
MikeKraken: hello Jarrett
Dman176: hanging in there
MikeKraken: ahh, my keyboard is being mean... haha
Neverreturnedhome: bouncing aff the wallz
Dman176: lol @Mikey
MikeKraken: oh wow, there were funnel clouds near me today. *gets scared*
TinaAlsGirl5: Hello, Jarrett.
TinaAlsGirl5: I'm having a fairly good day, thank you.
JarrettLennon: My wife used to love to tornado chase.
TinaAlsGirl5: That's what I want to do when I have the time and money.
Dman176: hmm, Clara having problems I wonder?
Neverreturnedhome: same here tina wat a rush
JarrettLennon: She's got more guts than I.
alsplacebartender: Jarrett, we know you were quite young when you did Quantum Leap,
but is there anything you remember about the shoot you
can tell us?
Dman176: oh God, my sister would probably want to do that too
MikeKraken: LOL, would be fun...
Dman176: hey, Janna made it
SueJBakula: welcome Janna
TinaAlsGirl5: My name's Joy, "never"
JarrettLennon: Not a lot of specifics come to mind, unfortunately. It's been a pretty long
time since I filmed it.
jannagalaxy: bliemy it took me for ever to get here!
SueJBakula: glad you made it
Neverreturnedhome: soz joy
Neverreturnedhome: hey janna
jannagalaxy: hi everyonw
alsplacebartender: how did you get the part as a child actor back then?
JarrettLennon: I remember working with Charles Rocket, which my mother
was quite excited about. She was a fan.
Dman176: oh, "never" I"m Damon btw
alsplacebartender: what was charles like?
Dman176: I was going to ask that, Brian lol
Dman176: heh heh
JarrettLennon: Well, I've been acting since I was four, so getting the part merely
required being right for the role.
JarrettLennon: Charles was fantastic. I worked with him years later on Short Cuts.
MikeKraken: yay! Hi Janna!
JarrettLennon: This text field sure is laggy sometimes...
Dman176: yeah, it's weird sometimes
jannagalaxy: hi mike
alsplacebartender: One of our member who isn't here today wanted me to ask if you
remembered anything about Dean Stockwell. He is supposed to be good working with
SueJBakula: Don't let it put you off though
alsplacebartender: yeah sorry about that
JarrettLennon: I vaguely remember meeting Dean, and I do recall that he was incrtedibly
nice to me.Made a
JarrettLennon: Made a real effort to talk to me without being condescending.
jannagalaxy: that was so nice of him
Neverreturnedhome: im jealous
alsplacebartender: yes, great to hear that
Dman176: that's great
MikeKraken: good ol' Dean. <G>
JarrettLennon: I had been a fan of the show when I did it, so it was especially nice to be
treated so well on the set.
SueJBakula: Do you remember anything that was specifically done on the set that
#clara5: Hello Mr. Lennon
JarrettLennon: Primarily the whole section where we sung the Christmas carols. I'm a
terrible singer, but when I was a kid I hadn't yet realized that, so I had a lot of fun
with it. I learned the words to carols I had never bothered to learn before.
JarrettLennon: Hello, clara
MikeKraken: WB Clara
#clara5: Sorry guys, have to go eat dinner, be back in 30 minutes
MikeKraken: bon appetit!
jannagalaxy: may i just say something?
jannagalaxy: i just thought I'd ask don't wanna be rude
JarrettLennon: Go ahead, assuming you're asking me...
JarrettLennon: No worries, go right ahead.
SueJBakula: I love the scene with the carols, so moving
alsplacebartender: janna are you going to say something lol
jannagalaxy: my name is Janine. I first saw that episode when I was 12 and made me
think of sunday school, for I went to the salvation army and I nearly felll off
jannagalaxy: still typing!
jannagalaxy: give me a minute
jannagalaxy: my seat. So I knew all the christams carols that were sung.
SueJBakula: we're not all speed typer's LOL
Dman176: wow, sorry, guys, my computer's acting a bit freaky on me,
don;t mind me
jannagalaxy: I tried to tell them the following sunday what i saw but they wouldn't
Dman176: Hi, Eleiece
jannagalaxy: I must say that you looked so adorable. :)
JarrettLennon: Hehehe... so that episode had a personal connection for you? That's great.
Sherdran: Hi, Damon. :)
SueJBakula: Hiya Eleiece
Sherdran: Hi, Sue!
MikeKraken: hey Eleiece!
Sherdran: Yo, Mike!
MikeKraken: mine slowed right down, too, Damon
Neverreturnedhome: feel th elove in the room
alsplacebartender: How about something more recent Jarrett? What was it like on
"She's All That"?
JarrettLennon: She's All That was unusual, as I worked only two days, but spread out over
two seperate weeks.
JarrettLennon: And because they scheduled me to be paid on a weekly schedule, I ended up
getting paid for two entire weeks, despite working only two days.
TinaAlsGirl5: Excuse my ignorance, but I haven't had a chance to check out your
filmography. Who did you play in "She's All That"?
Dman176: well, THAT isn't bad, is it? ;)
JarrettLennon: Those days were absurdly long, though, and involved mostly waiting around.
JarrettLennon: I played a charaacter named Naylon. You wouldn't recognize the name, as the
party scenes where I introduced myself were cut from the final film.
JarrettLennon: My only seen was when Laney and Taylor met in the school hallway for a
photo op, and then Taylor stormed off, slamming into, sending Laney Yes flyers all over
JarrettLennon: I then turned to my geek friends and said, "I think I touched her
Dman176: heh heh
SueJBakula: Now you're older, what would you think as being written in as a
character in our very own Quantum Leap Virtual Televison Series?
TinaAlsGirl5: Ah, I remember that scene! That's cool!
alsplacebartender: yes! was rachael leigh cook as hot as i would like to imagine?
JarrettLennon: Hahaha... I'd be honored, and happy to read it.
JarrettLennon: I had absolutely no interaction with RLC. She seemed to keep to herself.
SueJBakula: Any character in mind?
Dman176: LOL@ Brian
JarrettLennon: I got to chat with Jodi Lyn-O'Keefe, though, and she was quite nice. I had
a connection with her, because I had worked with two of her co-workers on Nash Bridges.
MikeKraken: I'll BRB... Java seems to be disrupting Dreamweaver...
JarrettLennon: I did a failed pilot that Don Johnson produced called Flipside, and a cable
movie with Jaime Gomez called One Child (reNAMED Untamed Love for its reale)
jannagalaxy: i'm sorry but i don't know what to call you, dont wanna be rude
SueJBakula: Tell me to shut up, if you want Brian, LOL
JarrettLennon: Jarrett's fine, no worries.
alsplacebartender: lol sue!
jannagalaxy: Okay, Jarret. :)
Dman176: Well, Jarrett, since a question was asked about what it was like working
with Dean, I might as well ask (didin't see the question here), what was it like working
with Scott Bakula?
Dman176: hi, Greg *waves*
JarrettLennon: You're probably going to kill me for this, but I honestly have no memory of
him beyond watching the episode.
DeadZoneLeaper: hi D!!!
SueJBakula: LOL Damon, that was my next question :)
Dman176: oh well, had to ask it, heh heh
JarrettLennon: Sure did, and I knkew I'd be asked.
jannagalaxy: Jarret, I would like to ask you if did a "sam beckett" and
travelled back in time to your own body when you were on QL would you do anything
alsplacebartender: nobody pull out a gun, he was quite young then lol! do YOU
remember where you were when you were 5 years old? hahaha
SueJBakula: yup, LOL, happy days
Dman176: lol@ Brian
jannagalaxy: i always ask strange questions
alsplacebartender: ha sue!
Sherdran: Jarrett, I saw in your filmography that you did an episode of "Buffy
the Vampire Slayer". What was it like working with Sarah Michelle Gellar and James
Dman176: that's a cool question, Janna
JarrettLennon: First question first: I can't say I could really have done anything
different. It certainly ended up well in the end, and I think my character helped that
jannagalaxy: thanks for the answer
JarrettLennon: As for Sarah Michelle Gellar, the camera really does add ten pounds. She
was terrifyingly thin in real life.
JarrettLennon: Also looked much older than she does on TV.
alsplacebartender: Jarrett you also did the pilot episode for E.R. right?
JarrettLennon: She was far more professional than I imagined, though, and knew exactly
what she was doing, advising on camera placement, lighting, positioning, staging, etc. We
shot that scene in less than two hous, since it was just the two of us, and I consider
myself very professional.
JarrettLennon: As for James Marsters, I would have killed to have even been near him, but
alas, no luck. I did see Alyson Hannigan pull up in her British Racing Green Jaguar XK8,
though, and she seemed like a sweetheart.
JarrettLennon: I was more interested in the supporting cast than SMG, really.
DeadZoneLeaper: Hi Jarrett, have you ever done any voiceover/animation voice work
besides being in front of the camera? If so, what shows have you done that for and is it
much different from regular acting?
JarrettLennon: Let me jump to ER before I answer that.
(Als Handlink joined)
JarrettLennon: I did do the pilot of ER, but when I filmed it it wasn't a pilot... it was
a movie. If I'm not mistaken, Steven Spielberg was involved at that time, and it was the
day I was on the set that he showed up to inform the cast and crew that they were turning
it into a series.Anyway,
JarrettLennon: I was Dr. Ross's first patient. It was a greeaT EXPERIENCE>
Dman176: oh cool
alsplacebartender: wow i didn't know that! very cool
Als Handlink: Hi All
JarrettLennon: My agents tried to get me on the show again many times, but they were
incredibly strict about not recasting the same actor, no matter how different they look
when they're older.
JarrettLennon: I know other actors who have played multiple roles on the show, though, so
I don't know what was up.
Dman176: how was it working with George Clooney? Oh, sorry, answer Greg's question
JarrettLennon: As for voiceovers, I've actually done a ton of voiceover work, primarily
when I was a kid.
JarrettLennon: Speaking of d'oh, I've even worked with Dan Castellenetta a couple of
SueJBakula: P.S. Don't tell George about TLC, he'll go nuts
Dman176: I know, Sue ;0
JarrettLennon: Voiceover work is fantastic because it pays very well, and is incredibly
quick and easy. Two hours max, and you're out of there. Then you collect residuals for
Dman176: I just wonder cause George sometimes seems like he's let the stardom go to
his head... sometimes :b
DeadZoneLeaper: Was voiceover work difficult to get into? At one time I had given
serious thought in trying to get into that as something to do on the side...
Dman176: hmm, I've thought that too, Greg :)
DeadZoneLeaper: (MJ had me doing voices on the IM mic for the longest time the
Dman176: everyone always used to tell me I was good at voices when I was a kid
JarrettLennon: As for George Clooney, he was wonderful. Then, about five years later I was
filming something else on the Warner Bros. lot, and I walked by one of their many stages.
He and Julianna Marguiles were outside, and he actually came up to me, remembered me by
name, and reminded Julianna (who didn't see to care) who I was.
TinaAlsGirl5: Yeah, I've wondered that as well... what with being on
Dman176: oh, that was nice
alsplacebartender: any shows that we should especially listen for your voice in?
SueJBakula: tis very nice when you're remembered like that, even years later
DeadZoneLeaper: me too Damon..I can imitate Homer SImpson and Hank Hill to name a
Dman176: I can do a good Homer ;)
Neverreturnedhome: lol@dzl hank is the man
JarrettLennon: Voiceover work wasn't too tricky to get into for me since I was already in
the business. My agent would send me out on intereviews for it like any other kind< AND
I"D GET WORK> Then I'd start getting requested. Once my voice changed the work
DeadZoneLeaper: it sounds like fun work if you can get it
JarrettLennon: It's a modertately cliquey business these days though, and I rarely get the
Dman176: actually, I do a good Baby Dinosaur and Elmo too... not sure I should
admit that though :b
JarrettLennon: I met someone online who's putting together a Flash webtoon, and I'm going
to be doing a lot of voices for it. It's going to give me an opportunity to create some
character voices which I haven't done before.
JarrettLennon: NOT THE MAMA!
Dman176: The Flash?
jannagalaxy: Jarret, being on this website are you surprised that the fandom of QL
still lives on 10 years after the series was cancelled?
JarrettLennon: Flash animation.
Dman176: oh, ok
DeadZoneLeaper: had Flash by Queen going in my head..lol
JarrettLennon: Oh, not at all. Good shows die hard. Anything worth having fans is worth
having fans forever. I've got my obsessions over old shows, too.
DeadZoneLeaper: what are your fave shows?
Als Handlink: What shows
Dman176: lol, you both asked it
jannagalaxy: :) hey it made an impression on me!
JarrettLennon: My obsessions' ReBoot.
DeadZoneLeaper: oh yeah, Damonm, I should add Christopher Lloyd to the list...;-)
Neverreturnedhome: reboot the cartoon
TinaAlsGirl5: Oh, I love that show!
jannagalaxy: I was only 9 when I was hooked!
Dman176: what, as a voice, you mean?
JarrettLennon: No, just my favorite long-dead show.
DeadZoneLeaper: Greatest American Hero is my fave long gone show
JarrettLennon: I tend to obsess of cancelled shows that should have survived.
Dman176: heh heh, mine too
DeadZoneLeaper: like Misfits Of Science..lol
jannagalaxy: well theres people here from over the world so that must surprise you?
Als Handlink: Sliders was good for a while, then they recast Quinn
jannagalaxy: it's half past midnight here
DeadZoneLeaper: Jerry's ego, I heard
Neverreturnedhome: 37 mins past exactly
JarrettLennon: Actually, no. It's amazing how much some of our shows are loved overseas
more than here. I get a lot of residuals from strange countries.
Dman176: eesh, don't remind me of Mallory, alshandlink :b
Dman176: what were they thinkin?
JarrettLennon: Yeah, Sliders was great in the beginning.
DeadZoneLeaper: the Other Arturo
Als Handlink: I have no clue, it was an insult to the fans intelegence recasting
jannagalaxy: yeah well England is strange
JarrettLennon: I was in rehearsal for The Great White Hype when John
Rhys-Davies got the call that Sliders had been renewed. He was so disappointed.
jannagalaxy: :) hehe
DeadZoneLeaper: when you're a stranger
Als Handlink: He was disappointed
#clara5: I am back, and I'll try catching on to what you have said in case I want
to ask a question
JarrettLennon: Yep, he apparently hated the show.
DeadZoneLeaper: I heard he wanted out bad because he didnt like the scripts
Dman176: Greg, one of those sites spoofs Sliders saying what would have happened if
the show had continued in his image... "When Jerry's Ego Attacks" I think it was
JarrettLennon: Yes, he hated the directions it was going, and apparently the production
overall was bad.
Als Handlink: That'
JarrettLennon: One good thing about Sliders was Sabrina Lloyd, who went on to do my
all-time favorite cancelled show, Sports Night.
Dman176: that's why John wanted out, yeah
Dman176: yeah, Sports Night was good, although I didn't watch it regularly
DeadZoneLeaper: didnt mind Karu Wuhrer coming on tho...;-)
Dman176: heh heh
JarrettLennon: I was lucky enough to never miss an episode, which was a feat since the
cast never even knew when it was on.
Als Handlink: s funny, Personally, I think the show started going downhill when
they were dealing with The Kromags every episode
JarrettLennon: I have it on DVD, as well.
alsplacebartender: You were in the LIVE "Lightning Crashes" video??!
DeadZoneLeaper: yeah the Kromags got overused
DeadZoneLeaper: I met one of the guys from Live and didnt know it
JarrettLennon: I gues the costumes were cheaper than coming up with original characters.
alsplacebartender: i love that song and the band... too cool
Als Handlink: That new one on HBO "Deadwood" is really good too
JarrettLennon: Yep, Live's great. They gave me an autographed copy of the album, which I
hadn't heard before, an I loved it.
JarrettLennon: Deadwood's filmed a few miles away from me.
DeadZoneLeaper: I live in Lancaster, PA and the band is from nearbyarea..I was at a
karaoke bar singing Higher by Creed and this guy with spiky hair and half a goatee came up
and said I really liked your singing..It was Chad Taylor and I didn't know it
jannagalaxy: I'm going to have to go, had a long day and got to go to the hospital
and bliemy well you know the rest. Just came here to say hi, my doctor would go made if
they knew i'm up so late :) don't care QL RULEZ. oh by the way...........
Als Handlink: What a compliment
DeadZoneLeaper: my friends toldme afterwards and I looked up the group photo and it
JarrettLennon: That's awesome, dead
Dman176: aw, ok, Janna
alsplacebartender: very cool dead
jannagalaxy: it was nice talking to you Jarret. And the rest of ya!
DeadZoneLeaper: dont expect me on idol tho..lol
Dman176: hope you feel better, Janna
Neverreturnedhome: u to jannaaaaaaaaa
MikeKraken: bye Janna!
JarrettLennon: It was great talking to you, janna. Thanks for sTOPPING BY> Get better.
Als Handlink: Bye Janna
SueJBakula: bye Janna
TinaAlsGirl5: Alright, Janna. Hope you get better.
alsplacebartender: later on janna!
jannagalaxy: i hate blood tests!
jannagalaxy: well bye! :) Janna/Janine from Teesside, England signing off!
alsplacebartender: oh! you were the carla's son on Cheers! I remember those
JarrettLennon: So does my daughter. She's two, weighs only 21 pounds, and it took three of
us to hold her down when they drew blood.
jannagalaxy: oh dear
MikeKraken: guys, I'm gonna go work out with my roommates... it was great to meet
you, Jarrett. Thanks for taking time out to chat with us QL fans!
MikeKraken: bye bye, all!
Dman176: bye, Mike
alsplacebartender: later mike!
Neverreturnedhome: effter mike
SueJBakula: Bye Mikey
jannagalaxy: bye mike
JarrettLennon: No problem, Mike. Have fun. Don't strain yourself.
Als Handlink: later Mike
MikeKraken: I'll try not to. :P
DeadZoneLeaper: Were you at the wrap party for Cheers after filming? I was on the
set once offseason and the place was crawling with straycats and they kept a keg of root
beer behind the bar all the time
jannagalaxy: bye everyone!
Sherdran: bye, Janna
Dman176: bye, Janna
SueJBakula: seez ya
Als Handlink: bye
JarrettLennon: I don't think I got to go to any Cheers wrap parties, unfortunately. But I
do remember the root beer keg, and I also remember they had a masseuse on set.
jannagalaxy: oh that documentary will be finshed by monday.
Dman176: you were on the set, Greg? How'd ya get that gig?
Neverreturnedhome: they couldnt pour pints on cheers far to much head!
Als Handlink: I think I heard once that the final episodes, they were serving real
JarrettLennon: In those days it was illegal to drink real alcohol on television.
DeadZoneLeaper: I was part of a college student mass media group in 1992..I spent 2
weeks at UCLa and got to tour the studios during offseason hiatus...They let us walk on
the Cheers set...I was in the test audience for the shows Delta (Delta Burke) and FOx's
Flying Blind (Tea Leoni?)
DeadZoneLeaper: I bombed Delta's show and it still aired...lol
Dman176: Oh, I'm looking here, I see you were on Lois & Clark, Jarrett. I bet
that was a fun experience?
Neverreturnedhome: they were drinking live on tv today getting v tipsy
DeadZoneLeaper: Be cool if you were on Lois and Clark & Smallville
Dman176: Freaks and Geeks too actually, I see... I liked that show. I thought it
was a shame it got taken off after one season
JarrettLennon: Yep, Lois & Clark was a blast. Dean Cain's another person who
remembered me again years later. Awesome people. And I got to work with Penn Jillette,
JarrettLennon: Yeah, F&G's my number-two favorite cancelled show.
Dman176: oh wow, something in common, I met Penn Gillette and Teller too;)
Sherdran: Jarrett, I was just checking your filmography and have discovered that
your daughter and I have something in common. *g*.... we share a birthday.
Dman176: my father took pictures of the model he was dating many yearsa go and we
got to go backstage on the Refrigerator Tour
JarrettLennon: Oh, what a nice coincidence.
Sherdran: I think so. :)
Als Handlink: It would be kind of neat if you were on an episode of the new Quantum
Leap if/when it begins
Dman176: got their autograph and everything :)
DeadZoneLeaper: You need to get on Dead Zone, it's my favorite "current"
show (Enterprise a close 2nd)...:-)
DeadZoneLeaper: Yeah, take over for Gooshie!!
JarrettLennon: I would never have guessed, DeadZoneLeaper
SueJBakula: yeah, I'm loving how Enterprise is wrapping up this season
Neverreturnedhome: hes too young for a gooshie
Als Handlink: Dead Zone is my current favorite series on TV right now. I love the
episode that guest stared Ally Sheedy
DeadZoneLeaper: Gooshie's replacement..give him a big IQ
DeadZoneLeaper: that was really good episode
Sherdran: Of the many roles you've had, were there any that you enjoyed more than
JarrettLennon: Is Dead Zone on DVD yet? I haven't seen the show.
Dman176: aren't they only like halfway thru over there, Sue?
Dman176: on Enterprise, I mean?
Als Handlink: The first season yah
DeadZoneLeaper: Season 1 is out already, Season 2 comes out June 8th
Als Handlink: beat me to it
JarrettLennon: Cheers was one, but my all-time favorite was PROMISED LAND> It was the
best cast and crew I've ever worked with, and I loved my character in it.
DeadZoneLeaper: you mean we can spoil the end of Enterprise Season 3 for those that
SueJBakula: watched "Forgotten" tonight
DeadZoneLeaper: CBS show with Major Dad guy?
SueJBakula: think there's another 3 eps left
JarrettLennon: Yeah, that's the one.
DeadZoneLeaper: I rememebr that show
Dman176: hmm, that's not much father behind... I thought England was months
behind... oh well
Als Handlink: Is it officially cancelled at the end of the season
DeadZoneLeaper: darn, can't spoil...lol
DeadZoneLeaper: what is?
Dman176: still don't know "handlink"
Sherdran: Promised Land was a fabulous show! I loved it, though I didn't get to
watch it much.
SueJBakula: you've had a couple of month hiatus, I thin with repaeats, that's where
we've caught up
JarrettLennon: The show as pretty good, although I didn't really watch it. It was the
experience that was fantastic.
Dman176: ah, ok, Sue
DeadZoneLeaper: As long as you got to go inside the trailer..;-)
DeadZoneLeaper: I think they all lived in a trailer or a mobile home or something
on Promised Land
TinaAlsGirl5: Oh, I adored Promised Land, and I absolutely loved the show it spun
off from--Touched By An Angel (in which Charles Rocket had a recurring character, by the
#clara5: there, done catching up... and now I think I got a question
Sherdran: Yep, they did. Gerald McRaney and Celeste Holm were perfect in their
roles on that show.
DeadZoneLeaper: just like Billy and that trailer from the old Shazam/Captain MArvel
JarrettLennon: Yes, it was a spin-off.
alsplacebartender: wow! well we have talked about your past works jarrett... what
are you working on now?
SueJBakula: Is your head 'spinning' yet Jarrett?
#clara5: well, that's it for me, no more going to eat in the middle of a chat, see
what I miss? lol
JarrettLennon: Not much. I'm in an episode of Gilmore Girls tomorrow night. From there,
Dman176: lol, I'm about to heat up some food myself, Clara :b
#clara5: cool, Gilmore Girls, my sister loves that show
DeadZoneLeaper: putting the ballgame on as I read the chat
#clara5: and I like it too...
alsplacebartender: it's airing tomorrow night? or you're filming it tomorrow?
Neverreturnedhome: wat gilmore girls?
JarrettLennon: It's on tomorrow night, here in the states.
alsplacebartender: cool... i'll have to check that out. who do you play?
Neverreturnedhome: wats it about for the non americains in here
#clara5: oh, I don't know if I'll be able to catch it but be sure I will watch if I
can..., I live in Canada
JarrettLennon: I've honestly never seen the show, so I don't know the overall plot. I play
the boyfriend OF Rory's dormmate, Tanna.
Dman176: btw, Greg, speaking of baseball, did you read the ending of your story for
my leap-in this week? :b
TinaAlsGirl5: I've seen another QL guest star on Gilmore Girls before--Liz Torres
Als Handlink: Who was Liz Torres
Dman176: is that the angel?
Sherdran: She played Angelita on the QL episode It's A Wonderful Leap.
TinaAlsGirl5: Yep, Angelita
DeadZoneLeaper: i think it was ANgelita
Dman176: Angelita Carmen Guadalupe,whatever
TinaAlsGirl5: Cecilia Jimeniz
Neverreturnedhome: wat a brilliant eposde
#clara5: that name keeps reminding me about B'Elanna Torres (Star Trek Voyager)
Dman176: she's done a few things
Als Handlink: Ya, that was a good one
TinaAlsGirl5: Yup. QL's Christmas episodes were always some of their best
DeadZoneLeaper: havent read it yet, D...im stupid, put the game on and team isnt
Neverreturnedhome: al and her is well funny
Dman176: she's a good actress
Sherdran: I agree. And Liz has a wonderful singing voice. I still love the way she
sang "Someone To Watch Over Me" in that episode.
#clara5: yes, she really is, awesome job
TinaAlsGirl5: Ah, yes, definitely
DeadZoneLeaper: i think she was on John Larroquertte Show too
Dman176: yeah, right, she was
Dman176: I forgot about that
alsplacebartender: What do you do besides acting work if I may ask?
DeadZoneLeaper: and chatting
Neverreturnedhome: and voice overs
#clara5: *and me, and me, Brian, I wanna be next*
alsplacebartender: go for it clara!
JarrettLennon: I'm a sales representative for Epson, a web designer, a computer
consultant, and the Director of Development at a viideo game publisher.
#clara5: no, he needs to answer your question first
Dman176: go ahead and ask, Clara, he'll answer it next :)
#clara5: that's really nice!!!
DeadZoneLeaper: coool..you get to test the games?
Dman176: I was gonna ask what games, but I'll wait for Clara to ask her question
SueJBakula: so...... any QL games in the pipeline? LOL
JarrettLennon: First it was testing, now it's designing and testing
#clara5: well, I wanted to know if in your career you got to travel much, and the
farthest you've been from the States for work
Als Handlink: So do we talk to you for a hook-up for Metal Gear Solid 3
JarrettLennon: I used to travel quite a bit when I was young. But the farthest I've
travelled out of the states for work was just to Vancouver.
Dman176: heh heh, probably not, they're pretty tight-lipped about MGS3
JarrettLennon: Yeah, and I'm not in with Konami.
#clara5: oh, so you did go to Canada, nice, did you go more in the East?
#clara5: lol, I'm in Quebec, that's why
TinaAlsGirl5: Cool, I own an Epson printer and scanner
DeadZoneLeaper: If you could pick a show currently on air that you haven't been on
yet, which one would it be?
DeadZoneLeaper: Konami? Did they make Contra?
JarrettLennon: I've filmed in Utah, Arizona, Nevada, New York, and Vancouver, besides
SoCal and San Francisco.
Dman176: yup, they did
JarrettLennon: As do I, Tina. Good taste.
Dman176: Castlevania and Silent Hill too
DeadZoneLeaper: Contra rocks
Neverreturnedhome: silent hill 4 on its way
Als Handlink: Are you working on any games we might have heard about in the gamer
Dman176: forget it, you wanna know about games, ask me I probably know unless it's
Dman176: big hobby of mine
JarrettLennon: DeadZone: Probably Will & Grace. There's plenty of others, but I'd kill
to be on that. Ooooh... and Alias. Maybe more Alias. I don't know.
Dman176: Alias is a great show, wish I watched it more often
Dman176: you need to watch it regularly unfortunatley
Dman176: kinda like with 24 also
alsplacebartender: I am renting the first couple of seasons of Alias to catch up
DeadZoneLeaper: I remember seeing the actor who played Will in a movie before the
show took off...It was called Free Enterprise with him and
Shatner...very funny movie
alsplacebartender: 24 is awesome!
JarrettLennon: No games you've heard of. The company I work for now is brand new, so we're
using E3 this week to help get on our feet.
Dman176: ah, ok
Als Handlink: That was one of the things that was good About QL. You could miss a
bunch of eps and not miss and crucial; plot points
Dman176: true, "handlink"
DeadZoneLeaper: today its story arcs and continuity
JarrettLennon: Very true. No real plot development.
TinaAlsGirl5: Oooo, I believe they're showing off Roller Coaster Tycoon 3D at E3...
I can't wait for the holidays!
JarrettLennon: Kind of like classic video games versus current games.
#clara5: oh, actually, Free Enterprise passed recently on TV, about a week ago on Space
(Canadian sci-fi channel), coincidence
Dman176: yeah, with a show like QL, that works though
Neverreturnedhome: tinalslimk the rollertycoon gamers are ace
DeadZoneLeaper: cool..I really liked that movie...Shatner really makes fun of
Neverreturnedhome: got them all
TinaAlsGirl5: Absolutely, Als. My first QL ep was a 3rd or 4th season one (can't
remember), and I followed very easily
Dman176: I'm a fan of the classic games too
JarrettLennon: Anyone here excited about the Firefly movie?
alsplacebartender: ooo yes i am
DeadZoneLeaper: was that the show that the network aired the episodes out of order?
JarrettLennon: I've run into several crewmembers at work. I'm glad to see Joss isn't just
rolling over and lettin ghte concept die. I just hope theyy can keep the entire cast.
TinaAlsGirl5: I never watched Firefly, so I can't say I'm excited or otherwise
Sherdran: What's Firefly about?
#clara5: I know I should, but I'm not since I've never seen the show, lol
Als Handlink: I Saw Heart of a Champion for my first ep and pretty much knew what
was going on after about half of the episode
JarrettLennon: It was a brilliant Joss Whedon series that Fox screwed over royally.
Sherdran: Oh, okay.
Dman176: I know that Joss Whedon is also writing the new X-Men comic series, if
that interests anybody
#clara5: Space plays it in order, though
DeadZoneLeaper: sometimes I think networks dont know what to do with sci fi shows
alsplacebartender: no doubt... FOX has been doing that a lot lately! Like
JarrettLennon: It does me. I love his writing.
JarrettLennon: I was about to catch up on my taped episodes of Wonderfalls when it was
cancelled, so I decided not to torture myself.
Dman176: Fox screws up almost everything... I mean, they have a reality show called
Als Handlink: Ya, that show is a bunch of bs
JarrettLennon: Yep. That show sickens me.
Dman176: or what was the other one? Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire?
alsplacebartender: yeah how does that crap beat a fresh show like wonderfalls?
#clara5: it's ugly, I hate the Swan
JarrettLennon: And they have the gall to make claims like it being the most unusual
competition ever devised.
Neverreturnedhome: wats it about?
TinaAlsGirl5: The only reality show I ever really watch is American Idol
Sherdran: oh please.... I'll second and third that!
Dman176: only reality shows I really watch are Survivor and The Apprentice
JarrettLennon: They take a bunch of moderately unattractive women, give them tens of
thousands of dollars worth of plastic surgery, then make them compete in a beauty pageant.
Als Handlink: All these reality tv shows, I can't stand them. Charmed actually
aired an ep Last night making fun of them
Neverreturnedhome: lol thats tv for ya
JarrettLennon: I hate them for another reason: They're putting me out of business.
DeadZoneLeaper: reality shows will continue because its cheap and no writers are
Sherdran: Now The Apprentice was good. The only other reality show that I follow is
Big Brother. Missed the first one, but have followed it since.
alsplacebartender: lol! yeah i guess that is a tough one
Als Handlink: but I do watch American Idol. I like Jasmine and Diana
Dman176: you know, I never thought of that either
Dman176: wow, yeah, that stinks
TinaAlsGirl5: That's the funny thing, too. When movies and TV first got started, it
was so that people could *escape* reality. Now they're trying to shove reality in our
JarrettLennon: Hate to disagree, Als, but Jasmine and Diana are my weak links on that
show. I'm all about Fantasia.
Dman176: I think if we wait a few years, reality will die out and we'll be back to
regular tv again
Dman176: hopefully, anyway
DeadZoneLeaper: and some of the people from these reality shows get deals
anyway...I heard William Hung's CD, it is horrible
Als Handlink: I hate her voice. It sounds too whiny to me. I think Latoya will win
TinaAlsGirl5: My top 3 choices were La Toya, Fantasia, and Jennifer/George tying
alsplacebartender: the thing about The Swan is that they make it seem like unless
you have plastic surgery, you aren't beautiful. That is so messed up.
#clara5: I like Jasmine too, she's so pretty and sings so well
JarrettLennon: Mine were Fantasia and George. La Toya's very talented, but she bores me.
Als Handlink: I couldn't agree more
alsplacebartender: I like Fantasia and Diana
Dman176: at some point, someone's probably gonna get maimed or kiled on Fear Factor
or something and then that'll be all she wrote for reality TV
TinaAlsGirl5: What they need is another show like QL to take Hollywood by storm and
start a new era of TV programming
Sherdran: I agree Brian.
DeadZoneLeaper: or the reality show Fox had Temptation island, if you don't put out
you have to get out..what was up with that?
Dman176: are you serious? was that the slogan or you made that up?
JarrettLennon: Diana seems like she belongs in a rodeo, not behind a major recording
contact. That's just me, though.
Sherdran: Temptation Island was worse that The Swan, if you ask me.
#clara5: go Joy go, I totally agree
DeadZoneLeaper: im waiting for that on FearFactor too..not that I would wish it on
anyone, but its bound to happen
Als Handlink: Fear Factor. I can't believe that people would subject themselves to
that kind of stuff for only $50,000.00
JarrettLennon: I can't stand any of the dating reality shows. The fact that someone has to
find "the one" out of such a small group is absurd.
Dman176: you're serious... that's all? 50,000?
DeadZoneLeaper: 5th wheel and elimidate
#clara5: I only like the physical stuff that's cool, but the rest is just ewwwww
Sherdran: Ugh!! I'd rather have my teeth drilled without novacaine than watch Fear
Factor. That's just sick.
JarrettLennon: Even The Bachelor. That group's too small to be likely.
alsplacebartender: I liked Jon Peter Lewis before he got booted off Idol
JarrettLennon: Fear Factor's alright. I always believe I could do moderately well on that
show if I don't get stuck with swimming or eatinc ompetitions.
DeadZoneLeaper: i liked Joe Schmoe
Dman176: I used to watch Blind Date sometimes just so I could laugh at the people
and say, "Thank God, I'm not that stupid!"
alsplacebartender: Joe Schmoe rocked! lol
JarrettLennon: I really like Mad Mad House.
Als Handlink: But did you ever notice how all the group absoultly falls in love
with whomever they put up there
Als Handlink: It's rediculous
#clara5: and of course two weeks after they break up...
TinaAlsGirl5: Ah, yes, Joe Schmoe was hilarious
DeadZoneLeaper: My Big Fat Obnoxious Fiancee was good
Sherdran: What comes after ridiculous?
JarrettLennon: Don't forget that reality shows are nearly as well-scripted and
better-edited than written shows. you watch what they want you to watch, and you believe
what they want you to believe.
#clara5: Mad Mad House... I only saw the finale, but I think it was good
JarrettLennon: Season 1 of Big Brother was the only show that allowed you to see reality,
and that bored most people so they went back to editing it. I always enjoyed the first
Sherdran: I agree, Jarrett
Als Handlink: ya, wasnj't there a marige proposal afetr Surviver, and then one on
High School Reunion. What a coincedence
Sherdran: I missed the first Big Brother, but I got hooked on the 2nd one, and now
follow it whenever it's on.
JarrettLennon: There's only been one successful reality romance (Trista and Ryan). That
should say a lot.
#clara5: I watch these things whenever nothing else ineresting is on...
#clara5: from what show were they?
Neverreturnedhome: going on big brother is like selling your soul why would you
want to do that?
Sherdran: ...like a test pattern, Clara? lol!
Als Handlink: IIf there is nothing on I pick up a book
JarrettLennon: I always watch BB, too, but now they cast the show specifically to cause
conflict, and edit it to make it look worse.
Als Handlink: Like Jerry Springer
Sherdran: Springer? Not even!
JarrettLennon: The first season, on the other hand, was mostly live shows, with free live
online viewing, and one recap show per week. It allowed us to see what was really going
on. Unfortunately for the network, everyone got along, so most people got bored.
#clara5: even here in Quebec we got our share of reality shows... but I don't
understand why any people would like that like they do it over here
TinaAlsGirl5: Well, hey, you can't have drama without conflict... So they oughtta
just concentrate on their fictional dramas, where they can create conflict without hurting
DeadZoneLeaper: wb D
Dman176: computer hung up on me
Dman176: sorry bout that
SueJBakula: sok Damon
#clara5: yeah, like most of those daily talk shows, they usually go to casting
actors to do the job
JarrettLennon: Well, I hate to do it, but I really should get going. I have a diaper to
change, and a I have to clean up a mess my daughter made in the hallway before my wife
SueJBakula: only reading anyway, don't know much about any of these shows
Neverreturnedhome: same here sue lol
DeadZoneLeaper: thanks for chatting Jarrett
alsplacebartender: yikes! well, thanks so much for coming to chat with us and if
you'd ever like to do it again, just let me know!
#clara5: well, it was nice chatting with you
JarrettLennon: But I had a blast here, and I may just stop by for the heck of it in the
future. Some good people here.
Dman176: nice talking with you Jarrett, hoipe you stop by again sometime :)
Neverreturnedhome: nice one jarret
Sherdran: Nice chatting with you, Jarrett. Bye.
#clara5: yeah, come by again
Als Handlink: Well thanks for stopping by. I hope you do stop back again
