I guess when you are reading this, you've already watched the whole series in the 90's (or 80's?) If you are not, this is a pretty good show. They have the re-run in the SciFi Channel. You may want to watch it in the SciFi Channel and see if you like the show first. In a nutshell, Quantum Leap is about a guy trapped in a time travalling sciense experiment. He leaps from one timeline to another timeline. He has no control on where or when he will traval to. When he is in another timeline, he becomes someone else in someone else's body. Of course, when he is somewhere else in someone's body, there will be a different kind of stories in every single show.
Time travalling stories, IMHO, are all about the same thing. Whether it is The Time Machine, Back to the Future, or Lost In Space, it is all about... well... you know what. Quantum Leap is almost about the same but with a little variation.
What makes this DVD set five stars, beside it has a good story, is the picture quality. It is very sharp with very good color reproduction. If you have the Star Trek Next Generation or the Sex in the City set, you know how crappy fuzzy these two dvd sets are.
On the other hand, sound quality is not as good as the picture quality but it is at least loud enough. Since this show is not about special effect and stuff like that, I guess the sound quality is not that important.
Overall, this is a pretty good set. I am looking forward for the rest of it.
I also hope that they will release the Nowhere Man DVD set.
