How NBC’s Quantum Leap reboot compares to the original

Nearly 30 years later, NBC has rebooted the sci-fi adventure series ‘Quantum Leap’ with a new cast.

The plot: A scientist jumps into an experimental time-travel project, using himself as a human test subject.

The new ‘Quantum Leap’ picks up in 2022, where the supercomputer Sam created, Ziggy, is back in action.

A new team of scientists are looking to correct the glitch that threw Sam’s leaps.

Raymond Lee stars as physicist Dr. Ben Song, who like Sam before him leaps into the quantum accelerator without warning his team.

Though the show's concepts are similar, the reboot's creators have forgotten to make their hero fun to watch.

Caitlin Bassett co-stars as Addison, who was supposed to be the leaper before her confounding fiancé stole her spot.

‘Quantum Leap’ airs on NBC on Mondays at 10 pm EST.
