Default Quantum Leap - The Complete Fifth Season DVD Review

The one part of my reviews I get to repeat each release. Once more, with FEELING: Theorizing that one could time travel within his own lifetime, Dr. Sam Beckett led an elite group of scientists into the desert to develop a top secret project, known as Quantum Leap. Pressured to prove his theories or lose funding, Dr. Beckett prematurely stepped into the project accelerator, and vanished--he awoke to find himself in the past, suffering from partial amnesia, and facing a mirror image that was not his own. Fortunately, contact with his own time is maintained through brainwave transmissions with Al, the project observer, who appeared in the form of a hologram that only Dr. Beckett can see and hear. Trapped in the past, Dr. Beckett finds himself leaping from life to life, putting things right that once went wrong, and hoping, each time, that his next leap -- will be the leap home.

And that’s four times getting to write that, over five releases (season one was never reviewed), and this is it. The final year. The new theme. The leap into a real person (Lee Harvey Oswald). The evil leaper. Even some of the more die-hard Leap fans could be forgiven if they claimed this season was a shark-jumper --* while still many others claim this season as their favorite due to the realistic characters and settings used on a more frequent basis. I see the value of both sides of this debate….at least with all the elements other than the theme. Seriously, why did they change it? The theme went from another one of Mike Post’s classic pieces to…this. At least it was changed back for the final episode.

Still, there were definitely some enjoyable moments, and the finale is GOOD.
