Preview: Quantum Leap – The Complete Collection

“Oh Boy!” Get ready to journey back in time with Dr. Sam Beckett (Scott Bakula) and his holographic guide Al (Dean Stockwell) in the 5 time Emmy® Award-Winning Series Quantum Leap.

Enjoy all 97 episodes of this groundbreaking Sci-Fi adventure series now fully restored and sourced from high definition masters! These beautiful new masters are restored from the 35mm negative, the difference is outstanding, creating an ultimate gift set for fans everywhere. Consisting of 27 discs this Complete Collection contains all the original music (which was missing in the previous DVD release).

Scott Bakula (Star Trek: Enterprise) received four Emmy Award nominations and a Golden Globe Award for his role as a time traveller, helping people out of sticky situations by taking over their body.

In 1988 Dean Stockwell was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Married to the Mob. Dennis Hopper advised him not to take on a television role so soon after being nominated. Stockwell didn’t listen, and went on to be nominated for four Emmys, and four Golden Globes, winning in 1990. Stockwell received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on February 29th, 1992. Fans of Quantum Leap organized this Leap Day ceremony.

Throughout the series, Sam Beckett often encountered implied younger versions of various celebrities, and other figures including Buddy Holly, Woody Allen, Michael Jackson, Stephen King, Sylvester Stallone and Bill Clinton.

Creator Donald P. Bellisario (Magnum P.I., Tales of the Gold Monkey, Airwolf, NCIS) wrote the Quantum Leap Season Five episodes “Lee Harvey Oswald Parts 1 and 2”, after his children came home from watching the film JFK discussing conspiracy theories. Bellisario had met Lee Harvey Oswald when they were both in the Marines in the late 1950s and from the conversation he had, believed Oswald was the lone gunman. The meeting was included in the second episode with Matthew Charles Nelson playing Bellisario.

Bellisario was talking about rebooting the show with Sam’s daughter carrying on the leaping mantle.

In October 2017 during a panel discussion at a Comic Con event in LA Bellisario announced “I just finished writing a Quantum Leap feature…I don’t know what’s going to happen with it, but I did write it.”

Oh, Boy!
