DVD TV Show Reviews
I watched every episode of this show when it was on the air the first time,
for two reasons. One, it is scifi and I am a sucker for scifi, especially
anything to do with time travel or alternate dimensions. Two, Scott Bakula
carried the series with his charm, charisma, and great looks. Add in Dean
Stockwell as his hologram friend Al, and it was very entertaining.
Each week, Sam (Bakula) would leap into a different person and try to set
right something in that person's life. The show did not always have the
best writing, but when it was good, it was very good. It was not
groundbreaking or anything (Sam never leaped into a gay guy, for instance), but
it was a great adventure to watch every week.
The second season is one of the best. My favorite episode is "Catch a
Falling Star" because it showcased Bakula's singing talents, had songs from one
of my favorite musicals, and also had two great guest-stars who later went on to
star in "Northern Exposure".
The packaging of this set is pretty cool It has a neat hologram
on the cover. The only thing lacking are the extras. It lists "bonus
materials" on the back of the container, but there are none. That is
pretty disappointing. I would have loved to have seen some great extras to go
with the great shows.
