Although 'Pool Hall Blues' isnt a particulary great QuantumLeap episode, its quite special to me as its the first episode I can remember. According to the original air date (March 14, 1990) I must have been around three years old, so dont know if I remember the original or a repeat. But when I started watching QuantumLeap on ITV3 last year all I could remember about the original airing was Al's handlink setting up the shots for Sam... see the lasting effect the Leap can have on a young mind (glad I rediscovered it).
My favorite parts on seeing it again would be the naming of the pool cues, Alberta and Basheba ('Thats a real pretty name'), and the slow-mo pool shot when Sam and Al look up at each other, that was then used it the opening credits of the other series'.
