As far as the technical aspects of the release, the picture is in its original full frame 1.33:1 aspect ratio while the audio is in DTS-HD 2.0. There are 18 discs total spanning all 5 seasons of 97 episodes with 2 discs for season 1 and 4 discs for each of the remaining seasons. This collection comes in a cardboard outer slipcover housing five standard sized hard plastic blu-ray cases. Unfortunately, the discs are stacked one on top of the other with 2 discs on each side of the case. It's a shame that Mill Creek did not go with the standard flip tray cases instead as that is far more convenient when removing discs. The picture quality, while not remastered, is still the best this series has ever looked and is a definite upgrade from the previous DVD releases. There are no bonus features, but having much of the original music back more than makes up for this omission.
While it might sound cliché, Quantum Leap was indeed a show ahead of its time. It was willing to take chances with every aspect of its storytelling while providing heart warming stories with love, humor, tragedy, and more. At the forefront, of course, were the brilliant performances by Scott Bakula and Dean Stockwell. No other actors could possibly have endeared themselves to the fans as easily and as quickly as these two. In a time when Hollywood seems to be running thin on original ideas, one wonders why this classic series has yet to be revisited in some capacity. Perhaps it's for the best, since few of these remakes ever manage to capture the splendor of the original. In closing, despite not receiving the V.I.P. treatment of some other big name shows, Mill Creek's budget-friendly blu-ray release should still appeal to fans wanting to relive these timeless stories.
Also, I quickly went through various episodes which are infamous for having music replaced, which completely altered the wonderful mood created with the use of those original songs ... and I can report that all of those original songs appear to be in evidence here. Please note: none of the special features from the Universal DVD sets are ported over here. But even without any special features to speak of, this is going to turn out to be one of the best Blu-ray releases of the year. I heartily recommend it. Especially to longtime fans of the show.
UPDATE: Please Note -- There Are NO SUBTITLES on these discs.
