The SF Signal Podcast (Episode 118): An Interview With Sword and Laser Hosts Veronica Belmont and Tom Merritt

We were very honored to be invited to sit and chat with Patrick Hester from the SFSignal podcast about the Sword and Laser show. I was worried we’d have to stand but Patrick was very nice in letting us sit. He also was very nice in listening to us go on and on about our dragon and how we love scifi/fantasy books. But then SFSignal is all about SciFi and fantasy so I guess he might have been interested. Plus they got nominated for a Hugo! So we made it up to him by congratulating them.

Anyway if listening to Veronica Belmont’s voice si at all interesting to you, or you like to hear people talk about awesome things, you might want to check it out.

Autopilot 04 – Quantum Leap

Autopilot 04 – Quantum Leap

Quantum Leap is an American television series that was broadcast on NBC from March 26, 1989 to May 5, 1993, for a total of five seasons. The series was created by Donald Bellisario, and starred Scott Bakula as Dr. Sam Beckett, a physicist from six years in the future (during the series’ original run) who becomes lost in time following a time travel experiment, temporarily taking the places of other people to “put right what once went wrong”. Dean Stockwell co-starred as Al Calavicci, Sam’s womanizing, cigar-smoking sidekick and best friend, who appeared as a hologram that only Sam, animals, young children, and the mentally ill could see and hear.[3] The series featured a mix of comedy, drama and melodrama, social commentary, nostalgia and science fiction, which won it a broad range of fans. One of its trademarks is that at the end of each episode, Sam “leaps” into the setting for the next episode, usually uttering a dismayed “Oh, boy!”
