Movie Reviews

Very Good - But buy season 1 - it's included
Len | North Easton, MA United States | 06/19/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"There is no need to buy this dvd. The pilot, genesis, is included in the Season One DVD which just came out. They don't write smart tv shows like Quantum Leap anymore. If they did, you'd probably see something like this on HBO. Each episode is more like a movie than a tv show."

"...Oh, Boy. Quantum Leap on DVD.
August 22, 2002

The floodgates are open. Releasing television series on home video was completely unpractical six years ago, but the convenience of DVD has showed studios that fans will buy up television programming on DVD. As many television shows have been announced over the last month or so, it appears that a great deal more are coming. Universal Studios Home Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment, Warner Brothers Home Video and Paramount Home Entertainment have all recently announced commitment to television on DVD. One of the first new series coming from this announcement is the science fiction drama Quantum Leap due in 2003.Before Scott Bacula traveled through space as the captain of the Enterprise, he traveled through time as Sam Beckett, a scientist who discovered the ability to leap through time, from person to person, within his own lifetime. Along with his friend Al, who appeared to Sam as a hologram from the future, Sam used the ability not for personal gain, but to help fix other's lives which had gone astray. Although the pilot of this series is out there on a discontinued DVD, it looks like the rest of the series will follow. Although no information is available on prices, specs, or features. Information on the show and likely many other popular series will be coming down the pipeline soon."
When can we have the entire series on DVD box sets

"I loved Quantum Leap when it was on terrestrial TV and unfortunately I do not have satellite to watch re-runs on UK Gold. We've got Buffy box sets, Angel box sets, Friends box sets, even Red Dwarf box sets and all of them pale in comparison to the excellent writing and production of Quantum Leap.
It was a well thought out, interesting and funny programme which could also be moving and thought provoking. Please please please, can we have the different seasons released as box sets on DVD as I'm sure there are many like me who agree!"

"This is a great episode, but I wouldn't buy any of these until they start releasing entire seasons."
