The quality with DVD's is unquestioned. The only problem with this one is pricing. You're paying the same price you would for a full 22/24 episode season. The three star rating has nothing to do with the series itself. It's just the valve of episodes -to-pricing that brought it down in my estimation. For the series itself, it's easily a five star show. My recommendation would be to wait before buying this. The price is bound to come down before too long. The first season does have some of the most outstanding episode, and after just the first episode, the viewer fully understands what the series is all about.
Quantum Leap itself was one of the most innovative and outstanding series of all time the quality of the acting, and especially the writing, was top notch from the get-go. This series will not disappoint, and you don't have to be a sci-fi fan to appreciate it.
This series should have been released on DVD a long time ago. Let's hope the whole series is out within the next year or so!
Years after I had seen it, when I discovered The Beatles, I remembered this particular episode: Sam had traveled back in time to the late 1960's, Vietnam hotpot, he was himself at a younger age! In the show, his sister was a Beatles fan and he told her that The Beatles would break up in 1970 but that John Lennon would go on to have a great solo career. Then, he took out a guitar and proceeded to play and sing "Imagine". I was a very young child when I saw this, with no real idea of who The Beatles or John Lennon were, and still I remember this episode!
Quantum Leap was a fantastic and progressive show, everything looked so real and the stories were very compelling! Sam traveled through many segments of time, became involved in famous or simple situations, had run-ins with some life-changing legends of the time and always helped to change many peoples' life for the best! It was a great show and probably expressed a dream many of us have had: taking a trip through history and possibly changing the outcome of certain situations! Plus, the history information here is like watching the best documentary you'll ever see!
I can't wait for more seasons to come out on DVD, I want to re-relive history all over again! (Kind of like deja vu all over again, huh? Ha ha!)
Well, basically this is a 3-DVD set containing the entire first season including the pilot espisode. It really is great to watch as the show progresses, and see episodes that i remember, as well as those i haven't seen. It was interesting to note that Scott Bakula's famous "Oh, boy" when he leaped wasn't in the first few episodes. And you get to watch the progression of the show intro incorporating new scenes as more and more highlights become available. The onscreen chemistry between Dean Stockwell and Scott Bakula is truly amazing, they really make you believe that they are friends trying to work together towards a common goal.
The extra features aren't many, but include Scott Bakula giving a brief intro to each episode, sometimes commenting on a funny or interesting event that happened during filming. There are also comments by Dean Stockwell (Al) and Bellasario the creator of the show.
Trouble occurs on Sam's first attempt. He becomes stranded in the past appearing as a test pilot. Al a friend of Sam's who is also working on the project appears to help him through his predicament as a hologram visible only to Sam. The other problem is that Sam's memory gets turned into a maze of Swiss cheese by the transport. He can't recall who he is or how he got there. Al has to coach Sam and help him through the charade of being someone else until they can get him back. Unfortunately, Ziggy isn't able to get him back although Ziggy does figure out that Sam continues to hop through the time line to set things right that have gone wrong and that, ultimately, one of them will lead him home.
An imaginative, well written show "Quantum Leap" managed to stay alive for 5 years. Bellisaro's imaginative concept, like that of Roddenberry's "Star Trek" allowed him to focus on the characters of the show. The format also allowed Bellisaro to tackle a number of difficult themes on television without seeming to be preachy. The top flight direction and acting makes the show believable.Read more ›

This is a must have for the Quantum Leap fan!
Has Pilot Episode! See how it all began.
Scott Bakula in his memorable role as Sam Beckett.
The series is good yet the price is very high for as few of shows that there are per season.
only 9 shows, not many for how much they are asking for this 1989 series.
This show is one of the all time classics.My favorite episodes from season 1 is The Color of Truth and Camikazi Kid.The other episodes was great too. Read morePublished on July 17 2004 by Matthew Krankka
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. Read morePublished on July 17 2004 by Amazon Customer
At last, we finally get Quantum Leap on DVD. I have had only my VHS tapes of just 5 episodes and the Sci-Fi channel reruns to keep me happy. This series has aged well. Read morePublished on July 13 2004 by Amazon Customer
While I agree with those who have said that the price for this first (abbreviated) season set is a bit high, I have to say it's worth it. Read morePublished on July 12 2004
