The method I use for this blog of looking back at the various time travel television programmes and films is quite random. It's not a start with the A's and work my way to Zed it's more like something crops up which fits in with a thought lets write about it.
That thought was triggered by a blog post I found God as a time traveller in which they asked if god would or could time travel? I guess first of all you have to get around the question. Is there a God? But hey how long do you want this blog post to be?
I would have thought if there is such a thing as a God, then that God would know everything. So if time travel were possible then they would be able to do it. No need to pontificate on the subject just a simple statement.
Now, in Quantum Leap (and I do have it on my bucket list to watch all 97 episodes in a Quantum Leap fest) you do have what I class as plausible time travel. Dr Sam Beckett jumps into the bodies of folks from the past, thus getting around all the molecules travelling through space and time theorems. His actions play along with the Grandfather Paradox idea. With the changes which happen are ones that need to be done and altar a future to what it needed to be, or as they know it to be.
In the Lee Harvey Oswald episode he only kills JFK not his wife as well, in the reality he jumps in to the wife dies as well but he doesn't kill her so this keeps the time line going as they know it to be as we all know it be in fact.
Now big spoiler alert. if you didn't already know, in the last episode he sees God to be told he can jump home when ever he wants but he can continue correcting the mistakes which have happened through out history.
Now that does beg the more a theological question of God, as they do no wrong, have they allowed these mistakes to happen? Normally this happens to teach a person a lesson, or are they fallible? They make mistakes and they are not as great as you think God to be.
Quantum Leap for me it is one of the top 5 time travel shows along with Sliders but can you really bring shows like these back or would you sully your memories of them, are they of an age?
As always your thoughts are welcome, feel free to comment.

Many are convinced that a man called John Titor time travelled from the year 2036 to 2000 to warn the world of an impending nuclear war at the hands of ISIS.
Appearing only in online forums 16 years ago, nobody knew the identity of the man who vanished without a trace – but some are now certain that this man was none-other than president-elect Donald Trump.
Conspiracy theorists now believe that billionaire tycoon Donald Trump is poised to use the highest position on the planet to stop the impending nuclear war with ISIS terror-nuts.
Donald Trump, who has supposedly already seen a future ravaged by the destruction of a nuclear conflict, is detirmined to avert the oncoming apocalypse at whatever cost.
The conspiracy theory, which recently appeared on 4chan online forums, claims to be one of the most compelling explanations for Trump's shock victory at the election last year.
Nikola Tesla & John Trump
The legend-tellers suggest that Donald’s uncle John George Trump, who was a very well-known scientist and inventor, oversaw the examination of famous engineer Nikola Tesla’s notes after his death.
Serbian-born Tesla moved to the US in 1891 was famed for his reputation as a “mad scientist”.
Tesla was also well-known in his later years for exploring theoretical subjects, and even made very early pronouncements into the possibility of wireless connectivity.
He apparently looked into fantastic theories such as free energy, antigravity, invisibility, and most importantly time travel.
After Tesla died in 1943, the National Defence Research Committee called on M.I.T. Professor John Trump to look into his work in case there was any military application.
Trump spent three days by himself looking into the notes before concluding there was nothing of any significance.
His report read: “(Tesla’s) thoughts and efforts during at least the past 15 years were primarily of a speculative, philosophical, and somewhat promotional character”.
Conspiracy theorists claim Trump found theoretical designs for a time travelling machine.
John G. Trump spent a lot of time with his nephew Donald before he died in 1985.
In interviews Donald Trump regularly brought up his “uncle John” and references his warning over nuclear weapons and the damage they may cause.
During one such interview he cryptically said: “My uncle used to tell me about nuclear before nuclear was nuclear”.
He told the Boston Globe: “He would tell me, ‘There are things that are happening that could be potentially so bad for the world in terms of weaponry.”
Trump told the Times that his uncle “would tell me many years ago about the power of weapons someday, that the destructive force of these weapons would be so massive, that it’s going to be a scary world.”
What is strange about the warnings is that by the time Donald Trump was born in 1946, the US already owned and used nuclear weapons.
Trump also spoke about his dislike of nuclear weapons saying, “I hate nuclear more than any. My uncle was a professor was at M.I.T., used to tell me about nuclear.
