I didn't really get really attached to the show until about the second season, but now I love it and am so glad that I started getting into it.

After ION started getting into dramas and away from sitcoms (and they took QL off), I stopped watching the station. But I still love QL and own all the DVD sets, so at least I can thank them for that. I'll admit that I do like the moral tone that the show takes, but it does such a good job of blending so many different genre elements into one show, without becoming inconsistent (unlike some sitcoms, where it looks forced or cliche when they do a tear-filled "special episode").

I remember - we were both on that board and this one. That's when I discovered ION. I love that station, even though they shuffle the lineups too often and unexpectedly. They always offer shows that we can watch as a family without squirming or fast-forwarding.

I can't believe Quantum Leap isn't being shown in the US in syndication today. Glad I have so many recorded. I watch the holiday episodes at appropriate times through the year.
