SueJBakula: I have that problem all the time

Dman176: yeah, the most important thing for my sister was being away from home

TinaAlsGirl5: ah

SueJBakula: BRB

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

MikeKraken: haha

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

TinaAlsGirl5: :)

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

Dman176: LOL

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

MikeKraken: LOL

#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 this season

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: lol

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

#clara5: *save

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 cahat

#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

SueJBakula: ahhhh LOL

TinaAlsGirl5: brb--gotta go set my VCR to tape "A Wrinkle In Time"

MikeKraken: wasn't

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

Dman176: no

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: LOL

Dman176: it's ok, Clara, I usually eat around this time too

#clara5: lol

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

#clara5: indeed

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: lol

#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

Dman176: *tweaked

#clara5: seems interesting

MikeKraken: sorry, I am making dinner... forgot to say BRB. haha

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

Dman176: oh God, my sister would probably want to do that too

Dman176: yikes

MikeKraken: LOL, would be fun...

(jannagalaxy joined)

jannagalaxy: yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

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

jannagalaxy: :)

Neverreturnedhome: hey janna

jannagalaxy: hi everyonw

jannagalaxy: everyone

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.

alsplacebartender: cool!

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 children...

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 ammused you?

(#clara5 joined)

#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...

jannagalaxy: yes

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

JarrettLennon: Hehehe

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

(Sherdran joined)

jannagalaxy: I tried to tell them the following sunday what i saw but they wouldn't beleive me

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"?

MikeKraken: LOL

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 the place.

JarrettLennon: I then turned to my geek friends and said, "I think I touched her boob!"

JarrettLennon: (seen=scene)

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?

jannagalaxy: <giggling>

TinaAlsGirl5: Ah, I remember that scene! That's cool!

alsplacebartender: yes! was rachael leigh cook as hot as i would like to imagine? lol

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.

alsplacebartender: great!

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

JarrettLennon: reale=release

SueJBakula: Tell me to shut up, if you want Brian, LOL

JarrettLennon: Jarrett's fine, no worries.

alsplacebartender: lol sue!

jannagalaxy: Okay, Jarret. :)

(DeadZoneLeaper joined)

(MikeKraken left)

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: lol

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 different?

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 Marsters?

Dman176: that's a cool question, Janna

jannagalaxy: thanks

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 slightly, anyway.

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.

Sherdran: thanks

(Neverreturnedhome joined)

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.

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 first

JarrettLennon: As for voiceovers, I've actually done a ton of voiceover work, primarily when I was a kid.

DeadZoneLeaper: hehehe...d'ohh

JarrettLennon: Speaking of d'oh, I've even worked with Dan Castellenetta a couple of times.

Dman176: cool

DeadZoneLeaper: awesome

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 years.

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 other

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 Quanta-DimensionaL Leap

Dman176: oh, that was nice

Dman176: thanks

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 few

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 dried up.

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 work.

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.

DeadZoneLeaper: lol

JarrettLennon: NOT THE MAMA!

Dman176: The Flash?

Neverreturnedhome: lol

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

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?

DeadZoneLeaper: yup

Dman176: hmm...

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

JarrettLennon: of=over

DeadZoneLeaper: like Misfits Of

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

jannagalaxy: :p

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 him

jannagalaxy: yeah well England is strange

jannagalaxy: :)

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

(MikeKraken joined)

#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 called

DeadZoneLeaper: lmao

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...;-)

DeadZoneLeaper: Kari

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.

Dman176: LOL

alsplacebartender: You were in the LIVE "Lightning Crashes" video??!

JarrettLennon: Yep

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 was him

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

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.

jannagalaxy: thanks

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 episodes... neat!

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: :'(

Neverreturnedhome: ouch

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

MikeKraken: later!

(MikeKraken left)

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.

jannagalaxy: bye

(jannagalaxy left)

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 beer

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

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, too.

JarrettLennon: Yeah, F&G's my number-two favorite cancelled show.

Dman176: oh wow, something in common, I met Penn Gillette and Teller too;)

DeadZoneLeaper: cool

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 others?

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 are behind???

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

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 way)

#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 show...haha

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, nobody knows.

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

DeadZoneLeaper: lol

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

#clara5: lol

DeadZoneLeaper: havent read it yet, stupid, put the game on and team isnt playing tonight..d'ohh

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

DeadZoneLeaper: lol

#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: 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 Magazines

Dman176: forget it, you wanna know about games, ask me I probably know unless it's PC :b

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 himself

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 Wonderfalls

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 The Swan

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? blah!

#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 needed

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 faces!

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 though

TinaAlsGirl5: My top 3 choices were La Toya, Fantasia, and Jennifer/George tying for third

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: LOL

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

Dman176: geez

#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 one, though.

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: 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.

(Dman176 left)

#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

(Dman176 joined)

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 anyone

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 gets home.

SueJBakula: only reading anyway, don't know much about any of these shows

alsplacebartender: i'm still waiting on scott to reply about the walk of fame star

TinaAlsGirl5: Yeah, Dean's way busy the next couple months, it appears... He's got a couple conventions/film fests he's attending and he's going to be working on a new film

alsplacebartender: yes, this only handles 20 people at a time lol

Als Handlink: I wonder if they have ever been on thisd web site

Neverreturnedhome: maybe one day though

Dman176: maybe

Dman176: you never know

DeadZoneLeaper: baseball and

Als Handlink: NASCAR

DeadZoneLeaper: tell him to get Sci-Fi to air Space1999 and Greatest American Hero...and put QL on fulltime!

alsplacebartender: i wonder if he is the guy who emailed me a while back?

Dman176: he's the one whose father died a few months back, that's why I haven't bothered him with it

#clara5: the Whalers??? no idea, brb, I'll ask my dad

Dman176: who Brian?

alsplacebartender: this guy emailed me and said he had a friend at sci-fi in on-air promotions

Dman176: my cousin's name is James

alsplacebartender: i don't know the name of the guy at sci-fi, just the friend

SueJBakula: I've lost touch with all of my contacts at Earlstree and Ealing studios

Dman176: I don't know if he would know about any of that, but I wanted to ask him about if he ever hears about anything before they make it official
