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'.
'... treasures buried inside. He would yield them up to a kind and patient prospector... if one ever came along'.
