Read Keith Dudhnath's film review of Quantum Leap: The Complete Fourth Season

There is some graining in certain scenes, but by and large the picture quality exceeds expectations for a TV series of this vintage. The stereo mix isn't used to any great effect, but there's nothing to complain about.

Apparently, earlier series of Quantum Leap had music replaced on the DVD. I didn't notice anything out of place with Series 4, but it has been around 15 years since I last saw the show, so couldn't say for sure.

The 1980s TV Flashback is a very disappointing featurette. Take a few trailers and plonk some bland talking heads in between and you'll be able to replicate it. If you can shoehorn in Quantum Leap, when it only just scraped into the Eighties, then great. If, in the five sentences you say about the programme you've just watched, one of them is a factual inaccuracy, you've got it spot on. Expect to see the exact same featurette on other Eighties TV releases.

The bonus episode from Series 5 is a nice touch. The episode is Liberation, one of the few that didn't extend over a number of weeks. Look at it as getting 23 episodes for the price of 22.

A neat little DVD package.
