“Last night, Darth Vader came down from planet Vulcan and told me that if I didn’t take Lorraine out that he’d melt my brain.”
So as I wind down this series of “Back To The Future” inspired “Artzee Fartzee” Post It Posts, I thought that I’d give a nod to my other favorite Time Traveling partners in crime other than that of Marty and Doc…but rather the duo of Sam and Al. As I mentioned once before in a Previous Post, “Quantum Leap” was definitely amongst one of my favorite television shows I watched in my adolescence. And like with everything that I like, I tend to want more of it…but in it’s original form. It saddens me that Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd will never be saddling up in their trusty DeLorean and crack the Space Time Continuum to peer at Hill Valley at various moments along the time line…but will Dr. Beckett…that possibility could still exist. There have been past attempts or talks at bringing “Quantum Leap” back as either a series of movies or even a spin-off series following the adventures of Sam’s daughter Sammy Jo Leaping through time tring to find and rescue her dad. Alas it seems like both options have stalled in their progress, and as of yet, no new Leaps. Unlike “Back To The Future” that suffers from a few hurdles if it were to continue it’s stories with Marty and Doc (ie Michael J. Fox’s illness, the fact that the actors have aged beyond their ability to play their characters even in their older incarnations, and let alone that the characters came full circle and it felt complete), “Quantum Leap” doesn’t suffer from this issue. Both Scott Backula and Dean Stockwell could play their characters at their current age without affecting the storyline or any type of continuity issues and as fans we were treated to a cliffhanger of sorts with the series finale. Dr. Beckett is still out there do what Dr. Beckett does best…leaping. Please, oh please can the powers that be, please give us at least one more adventure with our faithful duo!
So as “Artzee Fartzee” Troy attempts to rectify his Faux Flux Capacitor debacle with his hopes of traveling through time via Quantum Leaping…I hope you’ve enjoyed this series. Please come back and visit for more “Artzee Fartzee” Post It Posts and if you feel compelled to do so…tell a friend about my artwork and these Posts…ah hell…tell two, I don’t mind. Hope to see you back…to the Future…um Present…I mean, right back here at my site, next time that is!
