Best Theme Tune In The WorldBy James Witt from SE16, London , 20 Apr 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]'Da da da da dah, da da da dah dadadada dadadada dada da da da dah dah daddy dah dah daddy dahhh!'
Although Sam Beckett/ Scott Bakula over eggs the proverbial pudding by uttering his infamous catchphrase 'Oh Boy' no less than three hundred and fifty occassions in the first episode of this second series. It is definately the season when Quantum Leap really Leapt (pardon the Richard Whiteley R.I.P punning).
The season opener shows Al in a courtroom fighting for the $10 Billion funding needed to keep the Quantum Leap project (and Sam) alive. 'Oh Boy!!' I always remember that any episodes which explored the metaphysical, existential and ethical peculiarities of the project were always the most fun. - I remember some classic later episodes where Al dies in one episode
(Oh BOY!!), or we first meet the Evil Leaper (Sam's arch nemesis), or when Al leaps instead of Sam etc... But I suppose this couldn't happen until the general premise had been set up during Season One.
Oh Boy, this series just got better and better. Highly recommended rental to anyone who has an appreciation of well made television and good storylines. It weaves the comic and tragic like no other TV Programme ever made.
Oh Boy! This show is pure unadulterated genius.

One of the greatest achievements in American TV historyBy MagicLemur (46 reviews) from Banbury , 13 Sep 2011In American TV series, the first series is often a pilot of 6-8 episodes, before a second series of 20-24 episodes. As with something like Battlestar Galactica, this usually means an amazing first series, followed by a butter-over-too-much-bread second series. With this series of Quantum Leap, this was my great fear.
I'm happy to report that, although the first series is still the best, this series succeeds in creating a full series of incredible variety with practically no misses.
The best thing about Quantum Leap is that every episode is different. Though the plots follow similar patterns, the different settings, times and ethos of each episode make each a pleasure to watch.
Having seen Comic strip, and other series (where each episode is a different setting), it is clear that it took Belasarius' creative heart-and-soul to make this series so good.
There are, of course, faults - the number one being the annoying theme music (depending on taste), although this series is before the dreadful remix of later series.
And it is also notable that at least two of the 'outro' scenes do not hook up with the following episode. Though this is not a major problem, having the wrong teaser is quite frustrating.
These faults accepted, the fact that each episode presents something different, whether it be the one with the College Jock falling for the Vietnam protestor, or the one where he leaps into a 'retard', each one is like a small movie with fully fleshed-out charactors and excellent writing.
If you remember this from when it was on TV, or if you want a TV series that defined early-90's optimism, then do watch this series.
Just as it is frustrating to see a TV 2nd series run out of steam and collapse under its own limitations, so it is a joy to see one that fulfils its purpose...
