Default A left field question!

This may be viewed as a "from left field" question but I'll ask anyways being someone whom normally the mind wanders.

If there was anything about Quantum Leap you wanted to see changed, what would it be and why?

By that I mean absolutely anything. Something you may have seen and thought well, if that happened it would have been interesting. Or perhaps you would like myself and thought, hey I would have loved to see Sam return home!

And I stress - IF!

An interesting question... There are many things about QL that were done right. But I think I would have liked more screen time and more character development for Al.

I wanted Sam to return home at the end, to be with his wife and child.

I would have liked to see them spell his name correctly in the ending - that's something that should have been corrected immediately.

Agreed.

Also, perhaps more foreshadowing or plot context relating to the Evil Leapers. I know that this may have been followed-up on if the series had not ended, but it seemed a trifle out-of-the-blue that they appeared when they did. Hence, I would have much preferred that there was more time dedicated not just to a love relationship between Sam and Alia, but an actual story line that would have more logically explained their presence.

Actually thank you for the very interesting points here.

I have made some fan videos I will post on youtube soon.

Where I chat about what I feel about the show. What I would like to have seen happen.

Character dimension is one thing for me.

Which is what has been bought up.

I would have liked to see Sam's home life. How was Sam like at work? At home? Who was his family? Who was Al's family? Who were the evil leapers and how was their work place like?

Who was it controlling Sam's leaps? Would we have ever found out? What is the character dimension behind the controller?
