Quantum Leap Exorcises Demons of the Past

Per Matt The spooky season has already transitioned into Thanksgiving’s cornucopia of food preparation, and with it, Quantum Leap has provided a feast of fan theories in its Fall Finale. But before the biggest cliffhanger of Season 1 is revealed,… Continue Reading →

From Finale Gets Weird… Even for EPIX

Per Matt Whenever a storyline gets weird… I dig it. And should that story straddle multiple genres, I enjoy it all the more. If it somehow ventures into the gross-out category (such as body horror), I tend to shy away…. Continue Reading →

Back From the Dead, NOS4A2 Returns
