Should have been done years ago. Release each season as a boxed set, include the extras, the out takes, the interviews, the gag reels; ring up Scott Bakula, Dean Stockwell and all those concerned if you have to. They'll go for it. Those of us who loved the show deserve the extras. We sure waited long enough for Quantum Leap to be made available on DVD. I don't know about the rest of the fans of Quantum Leap, but I feel a bit like "Sam" with the way the show going to DVD has been handled. The writers of the show left "Sam" high and dry since the show went off the air and the fans have been left to battle excessive commercials and edits when we are lucky enough to catch it on television. It's way past time...Get it out there!

"Quantum Leap" is about Dr. Sam Beckett, a genius who has built a time machine. Sam is sent into the past, finding that his mind is inside someone else's body. Each person has had something gone wrong in what is now the future, and Sam's mission is to prevent the tragedy. The only problem is that his memory is "swiss cheese", with lots of holes in it. His coworker, Al, appears to him as a hologram that only he can see and helps him. A series with a deeper message that small interventions can make a difference. An excellent series that shows how one person can change other people's lives.

Here is a brief episode guide:
Pilot: Genesis, September 13, 1956: Sam goes into the accelerator even though it isn't ready yet. He finds himself an Air Force test pilot.
1. Star-Crossed, June 15, 1972: As a literature professor, he must stop a co-ed from attaching herself to him.
2. The Right Hand of God, October 24, 1974: Sam finds himself a boxer working with a group of nuns as his trainers.
3. How the Tess Was Won, August 5, 1956: Sam becomes a veterinarian who becomes involved with a wealthy heiress.
4. Double Identity, November 8, 1965: Sam has to figure out his mission as a Mafia hit man.
5. The Color of Truth, August 8, 1955: Sam is a black chauffeur facing discrimination in the South.
6. Camikazi Kid, June 6, 1961: Sam is a teenager trying to stop his sister's marriage. (guest star: Jason Priestley)
7. Play It Again, Seymour, April 14, 1953: Sam leaps into a private eye trying to find his partner's murderer.

Uh-oh. Deja-vu all over again. I won't comment too much on the show itself because anyone looking at this is probably considering buying it or they wouldn't be here reading. Quantum Leap was another of my favorite shows next to Northern Exposure. Unfortunately, like Northern Exposure the first season of Quantum Leap was a late season fill-in that only produced 8 episodes the first season. And like Northern Exposure, this DVD set is overpriced. Shame shame. Taking advantage of paying customers, the companies in charge of distribution should reconsider the cost and how much they may be driving good customers away. 5 stars for the show, 1 for the cost= 3 stars average.

Why isn't this series on DVD yet ?? When you envision all of the money being spent by television studios to release all of the myriad shows currently coming out on DVD, it really makes you wonder who is making the big decisions. There are many thousands of die hard fans of this series who would gladly fork out the cash to get this show on DVD. With the SciFi channels recent (and inexplicable) pulling of the show from its rotation, fans have nowhere to go to see this excellent show.
I for one, miss being able to watch a show that I both learned from and thoroughly enjoyed week after week.
Its a shame that whoever owns the distribution rights to this, one of the best televeision series ever made is unaware of the loyal fan base that exists for it, even this long after the show ended.

Let me make myself perfectly clear here. This show is by far THE BEST science fiction TV show to ever deal with time travel. It works where so many other TV shows and movies fail because you actually feel like Sam Beckett has travelled back in time in each episode. Most entertainments use revisionist history to try to apply today's views on the past..and think that by playing an oldie on the jukebox they can get away with smoothing over racial relations and having people in the 60's wearing clothing from the 90's and today's hairstyles. The producers of this show paid attention to the details and had the characters use the vernacular of the time period, dress the way they did in each era, and were very good about not mixing decades. Like that other short-lived NBC show "Freaks and Geeks" you actually felt like you were looking back in time...it felt authentic. Most shows and movies get it wrong. Now for my gripe...I think it was a mis-step by the people who put this DVD together to have you sit through actor commentary about the episode before you watch the episode. I like hearing behind-the-scenes details myself...but prefer the option of choosing to watch it AFTER I've seen the episode. For those who haven't seen each episode and aren't a bonafide "Leaper", these spoilers can make you not want to sit through the episode. That's why I give the DVD a 4 instead of a 5. Commentary is good when given an option to view it...but by placing the commentary before each episode instead of giving the viewer the option to view it later, I believe was a mistake.
