I agree, they're all fun to see, but of those that haven't been mentioned, I especially enjoyed Darlene in "Miss Deep South." There's also the Polaroid of "Butchie" in the monkey cage ("Runaway")....

I thought Al told it to Sam in the pilot episode, when he was introducing (or re-introducing) himself.

Oh, OK--I haven't re-watched that episode (it's not one I especially liked). I thought I remembered him saying he spent Saturday afternoons at the movies basking in the glow of her eyes.

I thought he was supposed to save Dale and Ginny from getting killed in the sandstorm, although that seemed to be left unresolved.

I wasn't that crazy about this episode, though I enjoyed the...

It was fun seeing a very young Joseph Gordon-Levitt in this; I was used to seeing him as a teenager in Third Rock from the Sun.

This gets really confusing; I thought that Al was speaking from the point of view of the "changed by Sam" history in his own time. So he knows that Jackie wasn't killed along with JFK and that MLK...

Some of "You Can Call Me Al" by Paul Simon reminds me a bit of Sam's confusion and disorientation after leaping:

A man walks down the street
He says why am I short of attention
Got a short little...

Sam and Tom Beckett--why those names?

Has Bellisario or anyone else connected with the creation of QL ever explained how he came to choose the names of Sam Beckett and his brother Tom? They both have real-life counterparts. Samuel...

I didn't care for the Evil Leaper episodes, especially the last one in the women's prison. I could buy the idea of an evil leaper, and I also wish she had been truly evil and not just used by evil...

The chaos and the multiple leapers and holograms were what I didn't like about this episode. I can deal with the possibility that there are evil counterparts to Sam and Al, but Zoe suddenly becoming...

I thought the episodes where there's some parallel with Sam's family/friends were in the minority. Most of the time, the leapees have very little in common with Sam's world. The leap into Tom's...

This is a question inspired by the "Goodbye Norma Jean" episode. What if Sam had managed to save Marilyn for more than just a couple of years? What would have happened to her career?

I wonder if...

It was good to have a lighter episode after the dark intensity of "Lee Harvey Oswald," but I'm a cynic--I just don't buy that a wealthy heiress and a Greek sailor will find happiness together on a...

That sounds plausible, but in "Pool Hall Blues," Black Magic Walters is supposed to be suffering from seriously failing eyesight. One would expect his glasses to be really thick.

This was a freaky episode. I really missed the gentle Sam I'd come to know and love when Oswald took over his personality! Why did this man never receive an Emmy?

Really funny--though I think Al would gladly have put up with a few sniffles and coughs to spare his friend some of the pains you put him through in your fics!

I took that to mean he departed from his own time, so he had effectively "vanished."

I don't think this qualifies as a real mistake, but something about the "Goodbye Norma Jean" episode has bugged...
