QL on Hulu
Quantum Leap is on Hulu now.

Unfortunately, NOT with the original music and the episode descriptions on the menu have some careless grammar and even accuracy errors.

- The leap date in 'The Leap Back' is displayed as June 15, 1999
- The description for 'Revenge' starts: "After leaping as a twosome Sam and Alia end up in the body of a female prisoner accused of killing an inmate."

There is also at least one episode missing; Disco Inferno.

Ugh. Worth just buying the Blu-Ray set. I know less and less people watch discs these days though. Thanks for the review and details.

It's true, discs are becoming obsolete. I myself barely buy anymore what I can watch on Netflix or Hulu.

I own the original DVD releases but I couldn't help idealizing a method that eliminated the need to repeatedly get up to change discs. '^_^

Though, there is also some validity. My collection is now missing some episodes.
'MIA' freezes while Al is instructing Sam on removing the bra and my mom accidentally sent the last disc of season 4 to Netflix instead of 27 Dresses years ago.
Now 'Roberto' freezes constantly throughout on my bootleg.

Other episodes on the disc I lost and the condition of which on the bootleg are unknown are:
'Stand Up'
'It's a Wonderful Leap'
'The Curse of Ptah-Ho Tep'.
I'm leaning towards the assumption that they're botched as well.
I had to download 'Temptation Eyes' recently on itunes because I can't stand the replacement music and the bootleg has started skipping at the Chinatown portion.

If the Blu-Ray sets have the original music, it's worth my consideration.

The Blu-ray set has the original music, is all one box at a reasonable price, and has an overall better picture quality in most episodes. Of note, A Portrait for Troian is mis-framed off to the right for most of the episode. Dark sequences in MIA are rather grainy. Still it's overall a decent presentation. I wish they'd asked a Quantum Leap fan to help them supervise it. I would have done it gratis and recut the opening sequences to make them look better.

Thanx for the details and the link.
Given that it's August, I think I'll wishlist it to begin with.
