I've been watching this on my computer through Netflix.  It was never a show I followed religiously but loved the episodes I did catch.  Do you like the show?  What are some of your favorite episodes?

When I got home from school, it would always be on BBC2 at 6pm.

I'm very nostalgic for the theme !!

The little woman and I watched this every week, my favorite was seeing Scott Bakula waddling around pregnant in a floral print maternity dress complaining about how bad his back hurts. We kept waiting for Capt. Archer to say "oh boy" every time we watched "Enterprise".

Quantum Leap was a show I did follow religiously back in the day when it first came on and even through a couple of runs and even when it popped up back on USA and Sci-Fi.

My Dad rented the first season a few months ago and I watched it all.  It's a little cheesy, but then again, I wouldn't be on this website if I didn't like cheesy.  TeddyR

I'll probably watch more episodes once my have-to-watch list gets a little shorter.

I have fond memories of this show. I used to watch it with my parents when I was a little kid along with Star Trek: TNG.

I loved this show and watched it religiously. The series ending was IMO, one the best endings to a series ever. I  liked all the episodes when he goes back to his childhood, when he was the pregnant girl, and when gets to help save Al's marriage.

My favorites are the pregnancy episode, the evil leaper episodes, and the trilogy episodes.

The one I remember the most was the JFK episode. I think that might actually have been a 2 or 3 parter.

LOVED the show as a kid.  We have the first season, and I have to admit I find a lot of the first season episodes slow and kind of boring.  I believe it picks up quite a bit in the second and third though.

My favorite episode is what I think is the first episode where Sam is in a woman.  At the end he convinces a man who was harassing him that he's really a guy.  Great ending.  I also like the episode that is a version of A Christmas Carol, with Al pretending to be the different ghosts. Dean Stockwell is awesome.

I knew a few people who never missed it, but I only caught a couple of episodes. I think I'd like to check it out on video.

The episode that sticks in my memory is the one where Sam leaps into himself as a kid. He spends most of the episode trying to fix his family's future problems and failing miserably, until he figures out that he was given a chance to relive a bit of his childhood, and he's wasted it making everybody miserable.
