The Leap Home, Part 2: April 7, 1970

 

After being told Tom is still killed in Vietnam despite Sam winning his high school basketball season opener and the promise Tom made, Sam leaps into Tom’s Navy SEALs squad the day before he is killed, giving him another chance at saving his brother.

Jessica Conger, and also Laurence Brown of Lost in the Pond, joins us once again to discuss this under-appreciated second part of the third season opener, and he explains how M.I.A., The Leap Home, Part 1, and The Leap Home, Part 2, have a lot of similarities to the original Star Wars trilogy.
