It’s time for Ben to head back to the 1950s in a new episode of Quantum Leap. This time, he needs to do something a little harder than save a life if he wants to make the next leap.

Okay, so there may still be some life saving to do. The main focus, though, is on repairing familial bonds. If you’ve ever seen some families fight, you know just how hard repairing the bonds is. Nobody really wants to admit their wrong, and sometimes, it really is just a matter of opinion that makes it harder to heal.

Also, Ben gets to get his Indiana Jones on in the new episode. That’s certainly going to be a lot of fun.

It’s not that anyone in the time period would understand, but it would be fun as Ben talks to whoever his hologram is.
