Today’s episode features a cameo from Laverne and Shirley of Laverne and Shirley fame as Fonzie decides to set Ron Howard up on a double date since he’s been struggling to get laid recently only wackiness ensues and some minor issues crop up.

This time around Sam finds himself stuck not in the body of a glam rocker, nor in the body of one of those women, nor in the fleshy meat tomb of a gangster or something. No this time around he's in the body of one of man's closest relatives... a chimpanzee! Sam's mission is to save the chimp he's inside of (eww that sounded gross) by making the chimp the best astronaut it can be. And yes, that's the real plot of this episode. So quit monkeying around and listen in!

  • Ep 139 | Quantum Leap: "Glitter Rock"

    22 MAR 2024 · The story of Quantum Leap is simple, well no it isn't but let's say it is. Sam (Scott Dracula) goes back in time and inhabits the bodies of random people while his friend Al (Dean Stockwell) helps him out using a computer that's real good at probabilities. This time around Sam finds himself inside the body of a guy called Tonic, a 'glitter rocker' in the vein of KISS who is due to be stabbed in a few days if Sam and Al can't figure out who the stabber is The episode includes a whole bunch of awesome fake music, weird guys with largely fake British accents, and of course a sex, drugs and rock and roll* *Note: Scott Dracula is actually not cool like his name implies and is instead very much against the ideas of sex and drugs. Rock and Roll, however, may remain provided it doesn't get too intense

The BTBs show up to watch a show that all three thought was beneath them when it came out in the late 90s. Also there's mention of a Batman villain called Dr. Phosphorus? It turns out he was actually the inspiration for this show's big bad- Blight. A glowy skeleton man whose name is far less interesting than 'Dr. Phosphorus'
