Quantum Leap (2022) - I like this.
For a start, it's a sequel, not a reboot. While it's not the primary focus, the disappearance of Sam Beckett is still a mystery to be solved.
They've modernised the formula to the extent that it's now an ensemble show rather than a two-hander, and there are continuing storylines involving these characters, but each episode still has a self-contained "leap" in which some problem must be identified and fixed before Ben can leap again.
The new characters are likeable, and the situations involving.

I've only watched season 1 so far and I also like that it's a continuation of the original. The cast is okay, nobody who blows me away, but nobody who stands out negatively either. The stories become too black and white for me over the course of season 1. When there is a woke topic, too many people around the woke person are narrow-minded while the main character desperately tries to change their minds. The continuing framework of the season is alright, but doesn't actually lead anywhere.

That's the nature of a continuing series. I don't know whether they've mapped out an endgame at this stage but the continuing storyline has taken some interesting turns so far in season 2.

Apparently the show has been cancelled. It's a shame because I would have liked to have seen where they would go from there.
No spoilers, but at least it leaves with a better ending than some others that have ended on cliffhangers.

I didn't see it, but the commercials for it didn't seem too interesting.
It could have worked, but Scott Bakula was such a charismatic lead, that maybe it didn't have much of a chance without him
