Quantum Leap Rewatch (Episodes 37-42)
Episodes (31-36) (43-48)
At some point here in the middle of the series, Quantum Leap seems to settle. It isn‘t so much addressing challenging topics of its day, but just hitting all the pet topics of its generation. Things that had already become non-issues or were things everybody was well aware of. The “Baby Boomer” hit list.
Episode 37: Miss Deep South
As soon as you meet the camera man in this story, you know where things are headed. It all seems a little naïve, but it is refreshing to think that a story from the eighties could still muster up shame over a woman posing naked. I remember that it was around the time of this show that “feminists” started trying to make the argument that porn could be an empowering thing for women. How silly they sound today with the awareness of human trafficking and the way the porn industry destroys lives. There are still people holding on to the attempt to make porn an issue of choice, but it really isn’t.
Episode 38: Black on White on Fire
Episode 39: The Great Spontini
Episode 40: Rebel without a Clue
Episode 41: A Little Miracle
Episode 42: Runaway
