Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
A popular sci-fi series during its 1989-93 network run on NBC, Quantum Leap fought the ratings bubble and won legions of new fans in later years, when it was syndicated. Borrowing a basic premise from the '66-'67 ABC cult favorite The Time Tunnel, TV giant Donald Bellisario J.A.G., Magnum P.I. brought his signature touch for decent, natural heroes and eccentric sidekicks to Quantum Leap. Dr. Sam Beckett Scott Bakula heads Project Quantum Leap, a time-travel experiment that goes awry when Beckett himself decides to test it out. He isn't merely transported through time; he winds up temporarily inhabiting the bodies of real people. Initially he is whisked back to 1955 and finds himself in the body of a test pilot for the two-part "Genesis." Later first-season episodes are even more ambitious. In "The Color of Truth," Beckett lands in the body of a black man at the dawn of the civil rights movement. "Double Identity," a fan favorite, finds him inside a Mafia hit man who may be forced to whack his own "godfather." Other installments have Beckett inhabiting an English professor, a boxer, and even an acne-plagued teenager. His sole companion is Rear Admiral Al Calavicci Dean Stockwell, who appears in the form of a hologram, projected back through time, that only Beckett is able to see and hear. Al is able to glean info from Ziggy, the supercomputer back in the present, that helps guide Sam to the next "leap" -- to home, he hopes. The premise proved irresistible, and many TV fans rank the show atop their best-of-all-time lists. That assertion would be difficult to refute after viewing the eight first-season episodes including the two-hour pilot collected in this box set.

    A Leap For Fan Kind

    I've always loved watching the TV show, "Quantum Leap". Being able to watch, even though it is fiction, someone being able to experience a chance to leap into other people, and making the world a better place is great. And through the power of great, and talented writers, and cast this great, and amazing dream unfolds whenever I watch the, "Quantum Leap" DVDs. If only that could happen in the real world, life would be perfect. Scott Bakula, and Dean Stockwell, have given me may hours of viewing pleasure that only the best of Hollywood has to offer. I'd be in Heaven if there were ever to be a movie made of the show starring of course that talented duel, Scott Bakula, and, Dean Stockwell. Being able to have, and view at my leisure season one of, "Quantum Leap", has certanly made my year.

    It's about time.......................

    With all of the current shows being released on DVD, it's about time that some of the older great shows like Quantum Leap and Barney Miller are appearing also. Now if we could only get some of the other great shows from the 1980's like St. Elsewhere and Hill Street Blues on DVD. These latter two are classics, and while each has been released in a small 'Best of' collection, you could only do them justice by releasing all of the episodes. If you are a 'SiFi' fan, or just enjoy great writing and acting, Quantum Leap is well worth the money. 5 Stars easy.

    Fun characters, great variety, always a surprize!

    This series offers such a variety of entertainment. Mystery, adventure, even some vocal and theatrical stylings of Mr. Badukla. It is great to have a really heroic protagonist in a series. What a relief to watch each episode sans-commercial. The only word of warning is to limit exposure to too many episodes at one time....you'll hear that theme song in your dreams, (it should be a controlled substance!)

    One of tv's best

    Finally one of the best sifi series is released on dvd. A wonderful show that unfortunately like the original Star Trek was greatly undervalued by NBC. Leap never really fit in with the preconcieved notions of what a sifi series should be for network tv. In it's run it prove to be a witty itelligent thought provking and literate show. A wonderful blend of drama, comedy sifi and adventure make this show truly a classic. Great memories for those who remember it's all too short of run, and a gem for those who are just comming to the show. I can't recomend it enough.
