I’m surprised this show hasn’t been rebooted more often. Great premise.

From: Bodyswap1 , 25 days, post #3
Too bad the last episode ended on a cliffhanger.

From: guest (Way Yellow) , 23 days, post #4
The last episode did not end on a cliffhanger. I think it has one of the most fulfilling and honest endings of any show out there. It's not necessarily a happy ending, but a happy ending also isn't something that's real.

With the way Hollywoke is now, I'm afraid we're gonna get a half-assed, gender-swapped version where Sam and Al are now Samantha and Alice leaping that are based on current events probably just between the 1970s and now since nothing would be believable or accurate in order to appease Twitteratti and the CCP let alone it can also go into diverse mode as well since neither Bakula and Stockwell won't be near a 10 foot pole into reprising the roles that made them famous due to the color of their skin (a.k.a. their white). Also if Samantha does leap into the bodies of men in future episodes would she be disgusted by it or will she just roll with the punch like her male counterpart?

post #5 good.

From: guest (3 7 2 6) , 6 days, post #7
So guest (lmao) your not bothered nor disturbed about this having become either "woke" or "diverse" at all, although the gender-swapped idea wouldn't be considered as a bad idea?

But if they wanted to do a "gender-swapped" reboot of the show then why not make Sammy Jo Fuller as the leaper this time around while her father Sam Beckett acts as the "Al Calavicci" to her?

From: guest , 6 days, post #8
I always thought the obvious way to go with this was to send Sam's daughter after him since he never came home. So yes it would be gender swapped, since we already had several seasons of a male leaper, you go with a female to make it different.

It’s not like the idea of quantum leaping is tied to one specific person. I get the argument against James Bond being a woman, but the act of quantum leaping is an more of a story tool to drive the plot. Making it about someone else other than Sam is more than plausible and being afraid to make changes because you’re scared something is too “woke” is kind of sad.

From: JayGee , 5 days, post #10
I'd like it if they used a different actor for each new body.

From: guest (3 3 1 8) , 4 days, post #11
Don't forget guest, that we also had the argument of the next James Bond being "African-American" as well.

But also would the "evil leapers" be just only women or people of color as well in order to please different ethnic groups.

From: guest , 4 days, post #12
If the inclusion of people of color is considered “woke” to you, then that says more a lot about you to be honest.

What’s with the War on Woke? Why is it here? I mean grow up, we live in a multicultural, multi gender, multi sexual, multicolored world. People act like every show should be two white blokes wandering around kicking the spit out of people.

Times have changed, there will be less of that, and more diverse shows, some shows will be original, others will be adaptations of old shows, some will keep the same genders, race, sexuality, ability of the original show others will just use the premise and the title.

It’s the future I’m afraid to say, and as much as men may not like it we are the minority, if all women suddenly start watching sci fi then sci go shows will be made for women, there are more black and Asian people in the world, if they start watching sci go shows then all sci go shows will start starting black and Asian people. It has always been about $$$. So the more markets open up to tv and movie produces the more shows will change to reflect the majority of viewers and who buys the merch.

So get angry if you like, but being angry that you are in the minority (globally) is pointless and will only ruin your own life.

From: guest (6 0 9 0) , 2 days, post #14
I agree with the times have changed thing, but I still don't think Bakula and Stockwell won't be starring in the reboot if that ever happens, cameo appearances sure but starring in it not so much.

After all, this is the 21st century and having tv shows, movies etc. starring only the white minority just won't cut it anymore.

From: guest , 2 days, post #15
It must be a really difficult time for you seeing minorities in your favorite science fiction tv show about time travel that is not even real.

From: guest , 2 days, post #16
It's time to stop watching TV and start exploiting the masses who do. TV was always a waste of time while others accrued money and power. Now it's time let a new generation waste their lives away with fleeting moments of addictive entertainment. The quality of the entertainment produced these days is substandard anyway. Our standards shouldn't allow us to waste time on re-hashed ideas made to appeal to an ever increasing base of people focused on attributing their lack of success to their physical traits.

Like going out more but without the use of their smartphones.

Shame Quantum Leap only did an animal swap once.
