'Quantum Leap' on NBC: Sci-fi show to celebrate reboot with a drive-thru experience into 1985
2022, has been the year of reboots. The year started with 'And Just like that', 'Sex and the City' reboot, and now by fall we have 'Quantum Leap' on NBC. The old 'Quantum Leap' which was an 80s show is back with a reboot or shall I say the sixth season with a new cast, new protagonist, same storyline.
If you are not a boomer and haven't watched the series, you ought to as the older series was ahead of its time and had all the viewers back then at the edge of their seats. The older series used to star Scott Bakula as Dr Sam Beckett, a physicist who involuntarily leaps through spacetime during experiments in time travel, by temporarily taking the place of other people to correct what he consistently discovers were historical mistakes. There were two title cards tacked on to the end of the last episode of the 80s series; one read that Al’s first wife Beth never remarried, so they were still married in the present day and had four daughters. The last title card said, "Sam Becket never returned home."
However, the new show's premise is set 30 years after Dr Sam Beckett stepped into the 'Quantum Leap' accelerator and vanished, following a new team that must restart the project hoping to understand the mysteries behind the machine and its creator. It stars Raymond Lee, Anastasia Antonia, Mason Alexander Park, and Jewel Staite. The reboot has been making a lot of headlines lately due to its amazing teasers which show Raymond Lee leaping into time in different situations.
According to Deadline, The 'Quantum Leap' creators got a gift for their fans! This Thursday which is on September 15, 2022, the team of 'Quantum Leap' have organized a drive-through at North Vine St in Hollywood at the Avalon parking lot where the fans will leap back in time which also happens to be the backdrop of the premiere series! Exciting right? The vibe is all 80s. The audience will experience all of the things that the 80s had, starting from back dancers to tunes and trivia. In today's date, where gas prices are as pricey as a Louis Vuitton bag, people will have the chance to fill in their gas tank at .91 cents! How unbelievable is that? But there is a catch. If the participants want to receive access to the gas station, they must complete the drive-through experience and receive a registered pass.
On the same exact day, 'Quantum Leap' has teamed up with Fandango. Want to know why? Don't worry I got you! All the fans and every moviegoer will get the chance to purchase a movie ticket online like in the old days! People will get to buy at the 80s style price of $3.55, that is while it lasts and as we know good things don't last for a long time, if you are a fan then this is your chance to seize the opportunity.
