Default What episode got you hooked on QL?

I don't know if this has already been a topic, but I was wondering what episode got all of you other fans hooked on this show? For me it was "All Americans" a few years back. It was actually the first episode I ever saw because I had never heard of the show and I was two when the original run ended.

For me it was the very first episode. It had all the ingredients of what makes QL great and watching it I realized I was going to love this show.

For me it was Pool Hall Blues. I just caught the end of the "next week's episode" teaser, and I was intrigued and, as they say, the rest is history.

For me it was all the episodes and the chemestry between Scott and Dean.
They were so special in the way they said each line and talked to each other.

^ Their chemistry is also one of my favorite things about Quantum Leap. It's definitely one of the highlights of the show. They just look so natural together that it's very easy to believe that these two guys, the characters, are good old friends. I especially like the "Al leers at girls / Sam gives him dirty look" routine. That always makes me have a good laugh.

I started watching from series 1, I enjoyed the first few, but it was 'How the tess was won' that made me keep wanting to watch, the little twist at the end with 'piggy sue' had me in hysterics, and 'oh boy' did I need a good laugh at that time in my life!

The first episode that had a huge impact on me was "The Color of Truth." It was, and still is, a phenomenal example of how this show could tackle an important issue in an entertaining way.

I will always think of Quantum Leap fondly. It is easily one of the best TV shows ever.

Leap On,
Michael

I think it might of been the first episode I ever watched.

Glitter Rock.

Still totally love that episode. I was hooked from go at the young age of 9. That means I've been watching QL for 20 years!

My first episode was "Honeymoon Express." It felt like watching a movie, with the high quality cinematics and the acting and the story line. I like that it was sort of a recap of what is going on in the show, so that newcomers can catch up and follow along with the premise.

I remember when I was younger I saw Future Boy in season 3 and was hooked on the old man trying to replicate Sams existing theory but then inspired by the spring analogy. After that I was mesmerised by the electric tingling leaping effect. I remember channel hopping across QL before the episode future boy but was not interested in sitting down to watch the full 45 min episode.

I will say "Pool Hall Blues." I remember my dad watching that episode and him explaining the handlink to me. I had no clue what was going on but my dad was cool in the regard that we could enjoy many sci fi-themed shows as I was a kid. It was a big deal back then, as being a so-called nerd back then was nearly a death sentence .

Default Evil Leaper

My favorite Quantum Leap Episode was the Evil Leaper. To this day, I'm still confused about the true identity of the Evil Leaper. Was the evil leaper from the same timeline as Sam working for a private anti-government organization, was she from an alternate universe, or was she from a different dimension? Also, are the new episodes of Quantum Leap connected to the Evil Leaper episodes?
