Reluctant time-traveler Dr. Sam Beckett (Scott Bakula) certainly gets a workout "leaping" from one person's body to another during the inaugural season of Quantum Leap -- and so, by extension, does Sam's holographic observer-advisor, Al (Dean Stockwell). The first episode, "Genesis: September 13, 1956," was originally telecast as a two-hour movie, and has since been seen in a 90-minute version, and divided into two separate episodes for syndication. In this installment, Sam leaps into the body of a test pilot with a pregnant wife and then becomes a minor-league ballplayer (though not, it should be noted, in the 90-minute abridgement). Subsequent episodes find Sam coming face to face with the girl he almost married back in 1972, and also inhabiting the bodies of a boxer, a veterinarian, a teenaged hot-rodder, a black man in 1950s Alabama, and a Bogart-like private eye who, D.O.A. fashion, is investigating his own murder. And in one of his trickier "assignments," Sam becomes a mob hitman...who has been hired to kill Dr. Sam Beckett! ~ Hal Erickson

    Great to see remastered on DVD


    Don Bellisario has always been one my favorite TV producers of shows. This collection of Quantum Leap episodes from the first season is some of the best of that series. I haven't seen any episodes of Quantum Leap in so long that I have forgotten a lot of them. For any Quantum Leap fan, you must see the first season. It's fantastic.
