    Any ideas when Seasons 2 and 3 are going to be released over on Region 2? I've had Season 1 for a while now and I know 2 and 3 are available on Region 1.

    I could watch then on my laptop or via s-video, or even buy a Multi Region DVD player, but I can't be bothered as a) the laptop isn't the best DVD player and b) I shouldn't have to buy a new player.

    It's irritating.

    They faffed around years ago with the release on VHS too - they released a small number of tapes from season 1, and then suddenly stopped releasing any more.

    Going by Season 1 DVDs, it's fared very well. The first episode is still a tear jerker.

    This is older news, but it sound promising.


    It seems three season of Enterprise may not have quelled Scott Bakula's (Jonathan Archer) time-travelling habits – as reports suggest that he may be working on a project that could see new Quantum Leap back on TV for the first time in eleven years.

    According to Dark Horizons, rumour had it that a two-hour telemovie with the work title "A Bold Leap Forward" may be in the pipeline, with production to start January next year. This would reportedly be headed by original Quantum Leap creator Don Bellisario and writer Trey Callaway, who wrote the horror flick I Still Know What You Did Last Summer and was involved in Tim Burton's Lost in Oz.

    Rumours indicate that the movie would be set eleven years after the end of the original show in keeping with the actual time since the show went off-air. The original series finished with Dr. Sam Beckett (Bakula) leaping continually and out of control, losing touch with his friend and mentor Albert 'Al' Calavicci (Dean Stockwell).

    Al would reportedly make contact once again with Sam, then after losing contact bring in Sam's daughter Sammy Jo, sending her on her father's path in an attempt to bring him back. If the premise is successfully executed and well-received, the potential for a TV show would apparently also be present. It has been suggested that Bakula would make guest appearances throughout the run.

    Most recently, Bakula and Stockwell were reunited not as Sam and Al but as Captain Jonathan Archer and Tandaran Colonel Grat in the first season Enterprise episode "Detained". The episode contained a number of nods to Quantum Leap, including Dean Stockwell's character constantly carrying around a small computer device and tapping information into it.

    The planned TV movie has an IMDB entry; the original report can be found at Dark Horizons. Please remember that no production sources have officially confirmed this and until such time as they may, you should treat this information as you would any other rumour.

    I dont know how old that news is Dave-S but I met Dean Stockwell last year and he said that the rumors about a new series were just that and that there would be no new series which is a shame.

    Come to think of it, I met him in April, not last year :rolleyes:

    Yea he is a nice enough guy, I just asked him about whether the rumors were true or not and he said no but I had the feeling he had been asked that alot lately as he didnt look to happy when I mentioned it lol

    Got a photo of me and him on the computer somewhere, will hunt it out.

    We can hope that he is just bound by confidentiality contracts. The Nile is not just a river.
