Theorizing that one could time travel within his own lifetime, Doctor Sam Beckett led an elite group of scientists into the desert to develop a top secret project, known as QUANTUM LEAP. Pressured to prove his theories or lose funding, Doctor Beckett, prematurely stepped into the Project Accelerator and vanished. He awoke to find himself in the past, suffering from partial amnesia and facing a mirror image that was not his own. Fortunately, contact with his own time was made through brainwave transmissions, with Al, the Project Observer, who appeared in the form of a hologram that only Doctor Beckett could see and hear. Trapped in the past, Doctor Beckett finds himself leaping from life to life, putting things right, that once went wrong and hoping each time, that his next leap will be the leap home… and not get murdered by Terry Funk.
On the latest episode of Three Way Theater the boys devote the show to the Funker, one of the stars of Beyond the Mat (Episode #30) and a true TWT All-Star. But before diving into his appearance on Quantum Leap Jake brings us a weird gem from the late 90s with Beyond Belief: Fact of Fiction featuring Funk and fellow TWT alum Gene Lebell!
Once the guys dig into the adventures of Dr. Sam Beckett JC’s love of the series shines through, spoiling five years worth of story lines without regard. So if you’re worried about spoilers for a show that’s been off the air 24 years, hold off on listening till after you’ve binged this sci-fi hit.
All 5 seasons of Quantum Leap is available on Hulu, and you can watch the wrestling segment from Beyond Belief up above.
