What I do to keep the feeling is watch lots of episodes of Quantum Leap, pour over my photos, tell everyone I meet about the convention, buy all 4 seasons of Star Trek Enterprise, watch Scott on every show I can and plan to go to London Film and Comic Con.

I had the problem tonight of Scott starring in 2 shows at the same time; Murphy Brown season 6 was starting tonight on one channel and Star Trek Enterprise on another! Luckily Quantum Leap is on the same channel as Star Trek so they will never clash.

I advise watching Chuck, if you aren't already! Scott makes an appearance in three of the last four episodes of season two, and is fantastic!

Yes I been watching Scott's Chuck Episodes.

I been thinking of reading one of the novels. I read a few when they first came out. So there are many I never read. Not sure which to start with though. Same goes with the fan fiction, there is so much to choose from.

With the novels... there's no particular order to read, I think. It depends on which story you wanna read.
There's the Prelude, which tells the story of how Project QL came to be, right to the moment Sam steps into the Xccelerator.
There's Angels Unaware - the story about Tersa (the little girl from "Another Mother" - the part Debbrah's girl played) which all you need to know is (well, mostly) the episode with Tersa & Angelita.
There are more (of cours) but a. I haven't read them yet, so no opinion & b. I'm sure they all go in the same lines... without a significant order to one another - since they most were written by different authors.

Well, I would definitely recommend "Pulitzer" and "Angels Unaware," both written by L. Elizabeth Storm. In my opinion, she was probably the best author of the bunch. I also like "Search and Rescue" by Melissa Crandall and "Double or Nothing" by C.J. Henderson. My personal favorite is "Foreknowledge" by Christopher DeFilippis. That novel was one of the inspirations behind one of my Virtual Seasons ideas.

"Pulitzer" is my favorite. It's very Al-centric.

I discovered another way to keep the feeling. When the bartender lied sticker became available I went LeapBack souvenir shopping.

What a buzz to come home to my parcel today!

If you want to do Orlando, I can do a little research for you later this month. I'm going to a convention in WDW.

The only way to have lots of guests be able to attend and still be financially viable is to have it where they live - L.A. You might get three or four in Orlando, but you would have to pay their expenses - get's very expensive very fast.

Glad you liked the new bumper sticker! It was taken from a story told at the convention (were you the one that told it?) and my wife says to me "that should be a bumper sticker." And so now it is.

Britannic, as of right now, there is no Quantum Leap convention planned for Florida, and there isn't likely to be one (in Florida or anywhere else) anytime soon. Sorry!

I think the way to keep the buzz going would be to start planning the 25th Anniversary con

Thanks for the suggestions!

Oh and I should add that it was only $4.99 including shipping!!! The actual book price was only $1.00.

britannic,

With all due respect, THIS was your chance to see Quantum Leap folks. It seems unlikely that this number of celebrities involved with the show will be put back together again, and certainly not in Florida. Again hate to break your heart but you are being rather persistent. I would have put that persistence to use by flying or driving to L.A.

We had folks travel from 11 countries including New Zealand, England, etc.

I hope I'm wrong and Deborah gets a chance to do more QL and/or Bellisario either lets her or does his own QL which would possibly drum up enough interest to do another QL con in 5 years.

My mind's been a bit fuzzy of late- But does anyone recall Jay saying that there would be a re-release of Quantum leap on DVD?

He said that there is a box set of Quantum Leap DVDs in the pipeline and that he tried to get Universal to have those DVDs ready for the Convention.

One can hope that all the music will be restored.
