Quantum Leap (1989)

Quantum Leap is an American television series that was broadcast on NBC from March 1989 to May 1993. The series was created by Donald P. Bellisario, and starred Scott Bakula as Dr. Sam Beckett, a scientist who becomes lost in time following a botched experiment. Dean Stockwell co-starred as Al, Sam’s womanizing, cigar smoking sidekick and best friend. He appeared to Sam as a hologram that only Sam and a select few others could see or hear. The series features a mix of comedy, drama and melodrama, social commentary, nostalgia and sci-fi, which won it a broad range of fans. It is particularly notable for the end of each episode, where Becket leaps into his next persona (the story of the next episode), usually uttering “Oh boy”.


Gunsmoke (1955-75)

Gunsmoke had a twenty year TV run with William Conrad as the sheriff of dodge city. The early episodes are perhaps more somber, serious and gritty than the ones that came after. It seems that there was a brief trend in television in the late 50’s and early 60’s to make some television with really serious topics. It almost seems out of place and Gunsmoke remains relevant 50 years later.

Father Ted (1995)

A little off color and ignoring the British laugh track, I thought this BBC series about three priests exiled to remote Craggy Island, somewhere east of Ireland, was kind of entertaining. This gets a mature rating for having off color language, but really not much.
