>it's not as bad as I feared it would be
It's more like meh with a side of potential.
Main character/actor is boring and not that great at dramatic stuff, but he looks like he could be decent at humorous scenes if they let him loose.
Hologram lady was the best actor in the show.
The present seems like it's going to be a big part of the show. I don't like that at all.
Nice little cameos/nods to the original show.
I"ll keep watching, but I don't expect the show to be on the same level as the original.

    Gonna watch it today OP. My hope for it is nonexistent but I'll be happy to be proven wrong.

      It's average, but it's just the reworked pilot. At least it feels like QL in many ways. Just with more drama (holo-lady is the leaper's gf and he doesn't remember her. She was also supposed to be the leaper originally instead of him) and an ongoing mystery at the center (where did the new codes come from? Why was Al's daughter working with Ben and what did they do to Ziggy?).

      It surprisingly not woke in it's execution. Just in the casting. I'm impressed. They didn't spend a second on trying to be woke, they just made a decent quantum leap episode. Not that woke is bad for quantum leap, it's just that there's a difference between tackling subjects like that and bashing people at home over the head about how shit they are and how ashamed they should be for just existing.

      I wish. I just watched it because I love the original series and wanted to know how much they would fuck it up. It's not 'good', but it's alright. For a pilot. That I expected to suck balls.
      But the whole present time and the more dramatic overall vibes are not really something I enjoy. It's just not the atrocity I was expecting.

      Yeah, but it wasn't HOT garbage.

      Sequel. One guy Sam jumped into is in the cast (Magic), and Al's daughter has been introduced. Ziggy is up and running again.
      But no Waiting Room for some reason. And the leap effect kinda suck compared to the original one.
      It looks like it's going to be the Team Knight Rider of the franchise. Very forgettable, but inoffensive and won't ruin the original.

        no waiting room? so what happens to the original? it was a pivotal point in the plot because that's where most of the information came from.

        ah, the team knight rider reference. i see you're a man of culture as well.

        Sorry if I'm watching a show and a chud appears it's dropped, now that I know this show has a tyranny I'll never tune in to give it a shot.

      No. Al's daughter was denied access to the project for being too close to Al and Sam emotionally and she works with Ben behind the scene in the pilot. You don't even see her, only her dad's ring on her hand.
      As for leaping home, something went wrong with Ziggy in the end of the pilot. Probably because of the new codes.
      I probably will watch it all, I'm a huge QL fan, even read all the novels and comic books back then (and some fan-made audio dramas about the evil leapers organization... don't ask).

    At some point they're going to find Dr Beckett. He'll say he can't leap home because he doesn't want to, he still feels he has work to do. However, since he's fully integrated and a genius again, before he leaps away one last time he'll provide information to upgrade the recall program, not fully but enough for the QL team to be able to work on being able to fix it by the final end of the show.
