The fact that the primary characters’ destiny was provided to the audience in the form of title cards shows just how unfortunate and also uncooked completion of Beckett’s tale was. The factor behind it is the last-minute axing of the program. In spite of being an important success and appreciating a cult complying with, ‘Quantum Leap’ never ever handled to amass the target market that would encourage the network to maintain it going.
