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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
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.
