The nostalgia for the 1990s is definitely not weakening. The proof with Code Quantum, a flagship series broadcast between 1989 and 1993 on NBC. In France, it was not until 1993 that we were able to discover it on Série Club then M6. The show featured Scott Bakula in the skin of the doctor Samuel Beckett, a scientist who, after a failed experiment, finds himself embarked on a multitude of time travels. Indeed, in each episode, he is catapulted at a different time (between the 50s and the 80s) and pass “in the shoes of one character to another, trying to repair the mistakes of the past“.
