Default Mirror Image Anniversary!

Jumping the gun here a day ahead, but May 5th is the 13-year anniversary of the air date for Mirror Image!

Thirteen years ago? Could it be?

Once again - we're at the anniversary of the final episode of Quantum Leap.. May 5th!

14 years ago. I was only 12 when I started watching Quantum Leap when it first aired in '89. I graduated high school the year after it ended. Time...

I didn't start watching QL until two years ago on April 22, 2005. On this day that Mirror Image aired I was about 7 (it was 93 right?). I wish I had been a fan sooner so that I could have possibly attended the cons but I look forward to this one in 09.

Happy Anniversary Mirror Image.

14 years. My God, where does the time go? I remember that night so well. I was sick and there was a Nun in visiting. Didn't get in the way of me watching Quantum Leap though

Was the original air date not 4th May?

Cool

Fourteen years - and still that ending is no easier to watch!

It may have been the end of the original airings - but it was by no means the end of Quantum Leap!

Re-runs, Virtual Episodes, Conventions, Forums, Fanfiction - all help to keep this great series alive in our hearts and minds, and bring us all together.

for another year of Quantum Leap!

Gosh, Mirror Image, the episode I blame for my dismal GCSE maths result. MI aired the night before my exam, and I got no sleep because I was so upset! Of course, it aired in June (I think!) '94 over here in the , so it's the 13th Anniversary for us Brits.

Yes, I'm positive it was '94, because I was in my first year of secondary school (year 7) and I was 12. I was in tears at school the next day.

It was ITV3 tonight and I balled my eyes out!!!

So, I went to rehersals with bloodshot eyes! I mentioned to someone why, my eyes were bloodshot. And she said "I didn't know he didn't return home." and I was like "Ooops! I'm sorry, oh boy!!!" Trying to say sorry a billion times.

Id just watched M.I.A. and when i turned off my DVD player Mirror Image was showing on ITV3. I thought that was a really cool coincidence because of the link between the two episodes, but I didnt watch it though as im rewatching the whole series in order, and havnt got series 3 or 5 on DVD (im waiting for my birthday), so didnt want to get out of order... plus i always end up in tears too.

then there's the fact that they mispelled "Beckett" as "Becket."

I don't know why they didn't go with the more ambiguous "The end?" card used in the alternate ending. I was SO PO'd about the ending to this series.

Yeah, that last card really is ruinous in soooooooo many ways. The alternate ending could have put a much happier/hopeful spin on the finale than what was used.

Today is the 15th anniversary of Mirror Image!

I liked this episode so much, I named the website after the bar - Al's Place.

I might break out my DVD's and watch it tonight.

Funny, I watched this episode on Monday, without realizing it was the 15th anniversary of the air date.
