22. Quantum Leap
As far as pitches go, a scientist finding himself trapped in the past with the ability to leap into different bodies on a regular basis while trying to get himself back home is a doozy.
Quantum Leap had no pretenses about being a weighty or thoughtful drama, it was sheer light and breezy entertainment and turned out all the better for embracing a sense of fun, humor and romance.
Bolstered by Scott Bakula’s charismatic lead performance and a constantly scene-stealing Dean Stockwell, Quantum Leap has remained incredibly popular and has found itself being referenced in everything from Family Guy to Avengers: Endgame.
