"Trapped in the past, Doctor Beckett finds himself leaping from life to life, putting things right that once went wrong and hoping each time that his next leap will be the leap home."

If you were a geek in the late '80s and early '90s, you probably heard that opening narration a lot. It started every episode of Quantum Leap, the sci-fi sleeper hit that followed Dr. Sam Beckett as he jumped through time and space. Every "leap" into another person's body brought a new problem for Sam to solve with the help of his friend Al.

While 'Quantum Leap' had a devoted following, it was never a major success.NBC

While the series was never a huge success for NBC, it built up a devoted following slowly and steadily over five seasons of generally solid TV. It's safe to say that Quantum Leap earned its spot on TV Guide's list of "Top Cult Shows Ever."

And even decades after the disappointing final episode (which saw Sam continuing to leap through time instead of returning home) fans have continued to watch, discuss, and obsess over every detail of the show.

Some of Sam's leaps were a little awkward.NBC

Now, superfan Josh Jones has taken his obsession with Quantum Leap further than most, by carrying out an impressive fan project for Special Request magazine.

He created an interactive map, plotting out all 93 of Sam's leaps from the show's run so you can follow his adventures in a unique format.

If you're a fan of the show, you've got to check it out.

'Growing Pains' Stars Reunite To Reveal Their Favorite Memories From The Show We All Loved

Watching Growing Pains was one of the highlights of our week when we were kids. The Seaver family meant a lot to us, and it was such a sad day when it ended. Alan Thicke was the amazing patriarch of the family, but it was the kids that we all cared about. Kirk Cameron's character, Mike, was stealing hearts, Tracy Gold's character, Carol, was inspiring students, and Jeremy Miller's character, Ben, was causing trouble, but we loved him anyway. Recently, the three iconic and original Seaver children got together to share some of their favorite moments, and it makes us


Steve From 'Blue's Clues' Wants The Thinking Chair Back, And He's Willing To Fight For It

Hosting a kid's show is probably pretty fun, but I assume it gets a little bit tedious. I mean, even Sherry Lewis must have gotten annoyed by "The Song That Never Ends" after a while. It's a lot of repetition, and reviewing a lot of really basic skills, but I guess seeing the smiles on all those kids faces makes it all worth it. Blue's Clues was one of the biggest kids shows around, and millions of kids would sing along with the "Mail Time" song multiple times a day (much to their parent's annoyance). The host of the show


Fox Really Wants A 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer' Reboot, And Honestly We'd Rather Get Staked

Bad news everyone, the reboot train is still chugging along, picking up unwilling and unwanted passengers along the way. At first the reboots were cute. It was nice to have those little reminders of our past. Sure, tell me what happened to the Tanner sisters, I'll admit I was curious. Or remake my favorite Disney movies with real humans instead of cartoons, because I can very easily ignore those and just watch my old VHS versions a hundred times. I know I shouldn't be too precious with the past, because a lot of things we grew up watching were remakes


There's A New MTV Clothing Line And We Can't Wait To Get Our Hands On It

Hands up if you spent your entire childhood glued to the TV watching all the videos on MTV. Pretty much all of you right? Perfect. Watching MTV was the best. You got to see all of the coolest music videos, which meant that you knew all the best songs, all the newest dance moves, and all the rad styles. As MTV evolved over the years, it kind of lost that magic that made it the go-to location for awesome music, and instead has turned into a reality TV station. Really the only reality show we wanted to watch was The
