Things are looking shaky for this new series.

The pilot won't air:

Show runners Steven Lilien and Bryan Wynbrandt are stepping down to executive producers and Martin Gero is taking over.



In possible good news, the pilot "Unbroken" that Scott Bakula was in, is not going to series, so he should be free.

All season one links fixed and put into the opening post, and the two episodes I didn't previously do, are done.

Since season two is a full season, unlike the first season, I am breaking up the season into three or four posts. The first season two post is fixed with new links and fixed time stamps.

The second and third posts of season two episodes are fixed. That completes season two.

All of season three is fixed and spread across three posts. Fixed the execution episode, too, and covered the three episodes I missed as well.

The first three posts for season four, are complete and missing episodes covered. I decided to break the season into four separate posts.

Season four is done. The first two posts for season five are done and previously missed episodes are now covered.



If the new series has scoriong worth hearing and I can link to episodes without the readers having to buy premium accounts, I'll do that show in this thread since it's not a remake.

I have fixed all episodes. I am now leaping back to another series...

This looks … terrible. It has failure written all over it. It looks like a remake, though it's not.

Wow. This looks like a more serious "Team Knight Rider" type of continuation. And that's not a compliment.

Wow. That was painfully awful

And it's not Mike Post or Velton Ray Bunch:

The new pilot is free (with ads) temporarily on the NBC website (probably limited to U.S. customers):
https://www.nbc.com/quantum-leap/video/july-13th-1985/9000287009


My opinion:

Somewhere after ten minutes in, I had to abandon the pilot. It looks and sounds like every other generic show out there. All the leads are boring and generic.

The first score cue was like every other score cue I heard in it: generic modern nothingness.

The classic Mike Post theme is gone and in it's place are four or five notes that may or may not even be part of the theme, with CGI of the series title that also looks like any other generic CGI work.

Everything Project Quantum Leap is nothing remotely like the original series and looks like a mess of incoherent science fiction ideas.

Just … total garbage. The whole thing is an insult.

The ratings for the new series are going down with each episode, but more episodes have been ordered, for a total of eighteen episodes this season. Ratings for online streaming services may end up saving the show for a second season.
