I'm seriously looking into the complete series set of Quantum Leap from the UK, as it has the original music. I just want to know what extras it has. Does it have the same extras as the american sets ?

Apparently, the US seasons 3 and 4 have changed music, but the UK discs have the original.

Right. But what about the extras ? That's what I was asking about.

So only season 1 had extras, and they're on both releases.
The US seasons 2,3,4 had music changed, and the UK seasons 2,3 have the original music. Season 4 is unfortunately the same altered music on the UK disc. I don't know about season 5...

I believe Season 5 had the original music. Season 4 was the odd man out.

Here's the information I had saved from somewhere on this site before:

S1: R1 and R2 have original music
S2: R1 replaced music, R2 original music
S3: R1 replaced music, R2 original music
S4: R1 and R2 have replaced music
S5: R1 and R2 have original music

Does anyone know about the Australian releases? Some people have said that season 4 has the original music but I'm not sure how trustworthy they are. I already own the R2 complete series but was just curious.

The region 4 Aussie release has the modified soundtrack.

The most annoying thing I remember about the change in music is that the dubbing process wiped over some of Al's sound effects - so he occasionally appeared/disappeared without any sound which is not only wrong, but in the one episode that "intentionally" did this it was because it was the devil impersonating Al.

I'm still hoping the complete series gets re-released over here in the States, especially if they use single-sided DVDs, or better yet, Blu-Ray for hi-def. Those "flippers" are so easily damaged.

Also, I was really frustrated by the fact they didn't even bother to include accurate "leap-outs" at the end of several episodes. I lost count of how many times the "Color of Truth" intro was tacked on. If they couldn't find the original footage, then why not just use the beginning of the next episode, and freeze it with Don Bellasario's name added?

Pretty sure the latter seasons of Quantum Leap were shot on video. The first 2 or 3 seasons might benefit from an HD transfer, but effects might have to be redone.

We also need more interviews with the actors, particularly since Dean Stockwell is getting up there in age.

I'd be surprised if Universal would go that route. But if they ever did, I'd be first in line to buy a TNG-type restoration of Quantum Leap. Provided that all the original music was intact. Quantum Leap is one of my favorite shows.

They should put Quantum Leap on blu-ray, if just to have fewer discs per season.
