Synopsis


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

    High Expectations, Poor Quality

    When you are purchasing a boxed set, you hope for a high-quality product. Maybe something with a collectible box or special features. This product really had neither. The box is flimsy andthe disks seem just shoved in in order to fit in as small of a space as possible. I also was highly disappointed in the fact that this product does not have captions. I bought this for my husband who is hard of hearing, and there are no caption options whatsoever, so he basically cannot even use the product and we can't really return soemthign that we have opened. For a recent release of a show that has been around for awhile, the company could have done so much better than this.

    Excellent Tv Show. The Box Set Was Great As Well, Not One Disc Was Scratched, Perfectly Clean. Well Worth the Price I Paid. I Would Definitely Recommend This Purchase to Anyone Who Even Remembers This Old Show or Just Loves Great Sci/Fi Storytelling. You Will Not Be Disappointed, I Grew Up With This Show Back In the Day So I Would Definitely Vouch for It's Nostalgic Posterity. Very Fun Show. Nuff Said.

    It's good to have access to classic television like this on streaming websites, but there will always be some value to having physical media like DVDs. I'm a big fan of this show, and have really enjoyed being able to watch back on the amazing journey of one Dr. Samuel Beckett!

    Really like watching this series. Some episodes a little perverted and would never pass the political correctness police of today. A reboot is possible, but I don't think Hollywood has the writing talent to do it successfully.

    This new release of Quantum Leap is excellent from Mill Creek Entertainment. It is excellent because most of the original music has been restored. Picture and sound are very good in most of the episodes. The only thing that is bad is the cheap cardboard packaging.

    Quantum Leap was one of my favorite series growing up, and it still stands the test of time. Brings back great memories, and now I can recognize things I never realized about the series when I was a kid...

    I grew up watching this show and I already own it on Bluray but my best friend wanted this show also so since it was for a great price I decided to get it for her and she was very happy.

    I don't mind the grainy picture. Because I have this tv show already. But when they put it out before, none of the original music was on the disks. This set has all the original songs.
