Editorial Reviews

The clock-stopping, heart-pounding adventures continue in the third extraordinary season of the Emmy Award- winning Quantum Leap. In these 22 thrilling episodes, Dr. Sam Beckett (Scott Bakula) leaps from one exciting identity and time to another, still chasing his dream to return to the present, and desperately hoping that time is on his side. Sam's a Navy SEAL, a beauty pageant contestant, a bounty hunter, a rock star (who really sings!). He even voyages to his 16-year-old self, exploring his family's history and striving to change their tragic past. Returning to guide the action-packed journeys is smart-mouthed Al (Dean Stockwell), a holograph that only Sam can see and hear, and timeless guest stars: Josie Bissett (Melrose Place), Tia Carrere (Wayne's World), Patrick Warburton (Seinfeld) and Debbie Allen (Fame). This groundbreaking third season, now available to own for the first time on three double-sided DVD's, is one that you can't afford to miss!

Format: DVD
I have a few issues with this set. First the discs are DVD-18 (i.e. dual-layer, double sided). I have four DVD players and the discs won't play in three of them. They will play on the fourth, but it "hiccups" and hangs for a minute or more on pause randomly. Sometimes it will just skip around 5-10 minutes randomly making them impossible to watch. I bought the set when it came out and have only made it through four episodes.

Second, the touchy subject of the music. I have to side with the "why bother" camp. If you aren't going to do the set right, I don't want it. I've been tivo'ing and DVR-ing season 4 & 5 off Sci-fi, just for this reason. They won't get anymore money off of me unless they release them right. It wouldn't be so bad if they subbed out lesser known bands/music from each era to save on money, the feel would still be the same, but the muzak pieces are an abomination. The biggest offender(from season 2) is Ray Charles's "Georgia." This song is integral to the character of Al and is even revisited in the finale. The scene in question is(was) very moving and touching. Now it is a hollow shell of its former self. Just an example of how music changes the show.

For those that think it is only a couple minutes of music, think again.

Format: DVD
"Quantum Leap" hit its stride during the third season. The show had dramatic episodes just as powerful as season three but this was the most consistent season for this classic TV series. During the third season Sam leaps into a KISS type rock star (complete with dramatic make up and with Scott Bakula doing his own singing!); into himself at 16 where he must change an event in his own past; Sam also leaps into a Navy Seal in Vietnam serving under his older brother where Sam faces a unique dilemma. Is Sam there to save the life of his older brother (who is fated to die the next day), insure the success of the mission or for some other mysterious reason? The series at its best managed to convey the best elements of drama: Sam never knows why he's there and what he has to correct which leads to many emotionally powerful and genuine feeling moments during the third season. What brought the best episodes home were the performances by the series two mainstay performers the marvelous Scott Bakula ("Enterprise") and acerbic Dean Stockwell as Al who appears only as a hologram and must guide Sam with information from the future.

If Sam Beckett had been able to truly leap back through time during his life time he would have been able to foresee the licensing agreement issues that prevent his TV series from having the original music in it and prevented it from being replaced. Some of the original music survives but it depends on how instrumental it was to the episode. By the way, Bakula's nice performance of "Imagine" is intact for "The Leap Home Part I".

Aside from an occasionally grainy or soft episode, "Quantum Leap" looks exceptional here.

The US version is cut. I ordered the UK Region 2 version and it is NOT CUT!!! All music content is correct!!!! Most DVD players now play any region DVDs. If you dont have a region free player just Decrypt and burn them without a region and that works to.

Format: DVD
Television at its best is an artform, not just, as a previous viewer put it, "virtually mindless" entertainment. And to make it that way takes the work of a LOT of people; the biggies, like the actors and the writers and the producers and the directors, and the lesser known but just as hard-working people in charge of lighting, and sound effects, and set-design. It's the directors job to, well, "direct" all of that effort into what will only be, in the end, a single 45 minute episode. What's my point, you ask?

My point is simply this: it DOES matter, a great deal, when even a single element is out of place. In the case of the last DVD set of QL it was the music that was sacrificed. And it made a huge amount of difference. Did it destroy everybody's work? No. But it made it less than it was originally. And, frankly, I don't want to pay the price of a box set for art work that's been defaced.

If the DVD producers really didn't have the money to pay for it, that's one thing. But the songs would have paid for themselves with the profits from the DVD sales. It's nothing but greed that keeps them from remaining true to the show by leaving in the original music. I hope they've decided to do better for the 3rd season, and keep to what was aired on TV. If they have, then I'll gladly remove this review and change my rating to five stars, and happily gush about the incredible quality of this show.

Somehow, though, I have a feeling I won't get a chance to do that.

Is Music Replacement All That Bad?
Personally, music replacement is an important issue with me. I won't bother with butchered episodes with missing music. This series has been butchered. I stopped buying after season 2. There is a review here for the third season of all the music they took out. It's outrageous.

Missing episodes?
Universal screwed up on a couple of episodes that I can recall using the syndicated "leap" which didn't always link to the next episode. That may be the case here as there seemed to be a really random approach to that section.
