I pre-ordered this DVD set as soon as I possibly could, so that I could replace my not-very-high-quality, copied-from-TV episodes on bulky VHS tapes with clean copies on a few DVD's. It had been a while since I had watched the episodes, so I didn't notice anything wrong until I reached "Good Morning, Peoria." When Chick and Rachel were dancing that romantic dance, all I could think was, "Huh? What the heck happened to the music? Wasn't there a *real* song there before?" So I did some digging on the Internet, to make sure my memory wasn't playing tricks on me, and was absolutely horrified to discover that the music in various episodes had been changed. Most especially I was flabbergasted that they messed with the soundtrack of "M.I.A." That is one of the best episodes in the series, and the music felt as much a part of the story as the words. I played the final scene from the DVD, and it was awful, dreadful; the music was no longer a presence, it was just some background noise. Thank heaven I was able to retrieve my old VHS tapes. I played the same scene from them. Even with a grainy, dark picture, the original packed more of a wallop. It wasn't just "Georgia On My Mind," it was also "Unchained Melody," with its wrenchingly appropriate lyrics - "My darling, I hunger for your touch; are you still mine?"
I cannot believe that Universal was unable to get permission to use the original music; so it must have been a question of money. It isn't as if this was a super-cheap set to begin with, but I would not have minded paying a few more dollars to cover the royalties for the songs, so that I could have the real show.Read more ›
-- UPDATE TO REVIEW -- July 2016 --
MILL CREEK ENTERTAINMENT has just released a new version of Season 2 DVDs which includes ALL of the originally broadcast music INTACT! I just purchased the MILL CREEK set and can verify this! QL fans can finally rejoice! Link below:
Quantum Leap - Season 2
5-star to MILL CREEK! 5-stars to Quantum Leap! 1-star remains for the horrendous Universal release of 2004.
-- ORIGINAL REVIEW from 2004 --
** The following review applies to the UNIVERSAL STUDIOS release of Quantum Leap DVDs in 2004. If you want all the original music, then buy the MILL CREEK ENTERTAINMENT release of June 2016. **
Dear me, where do I start? So much to complain about. :(
First thing I noticed was that the box image is obviously faked. Scott B.'s and Dean S.'s heads are pasted on the bodies of models. Just inspect Sam's neck and you'll see the joins! One must ask: WHY?!?!
Next, I opened the box, and frowned at the photo of Al, which is not even from Season 2! Unfortunately, my disappointment grew as I open the foldout further. The pocket for the booklet is just an advertisement for other Universal box sets, which if they get the same shoddy treatment as QL then I will be steering way clear of.
And what's this? Only three DVDs?Read more ›
