I have fond memories of Quantum Leap, and just not because of the signature “Oh, boy” muttered by Sam as he realized the unusual predicament of his latest jump. Now, thanks the power of the Internets, YouTube you can experience all of Sam’s “Oh boys” in 10 minutes.
It is widely agreed that shows like Lost and Battlestar Galactica ended on a low note. I’ve also heard more than one person say the same for Quantum Leap. Although these shows were good overall, they shared endings that kinda sucked.
Which begs the question: Which SciFi shows had the best endings?
