Forces TV (UK) beginning Quantum Leap re-run tonight

Just happened to look through the EPG and discovered that they’re airing the pilot tonight and it would appear, also the entire series over the coming weeks/months.

Given the information in this thread, the soundtrack has been restored for the Blu-ray releases but they lack some of the original movie length versions of the episodes. They’re included on the DVDs apparently but it might be worth capping them in case of soundtrack substitutions.

Let me know you think. If there’s enough interest, I’ll clear some space on my PVR and record the whole lot.

I hadn’t seen that thread. Thanks for the heads up. 😃

…but a couple of syndicated episodes which we may be lucky enough to get broadcast unedited.
Could be wrong though, as I’m by no means knowledgeable on the series.

Yeah, I mentioned that in my original post. This I suspect might interest people the most. They’re airing a 16:9 version of the pilot - was the series shot with HDTV protection? If not then its been cropped and it might not be worth recording the episodes if they’re in the wrong aspect ratio. 😦

Sounds like they might be cropped. I’ve got the US Blu-ray set so when I get a chance I’ll compare it with the broadcast and see how it looks.

Cheers mate.

Yep, definitely cropped.
I’ve also checked if it’s got any extra material at the sides (The Dukes of Hazzard went for a 16:9 image and had some extra which slightly reduced the amount lost from top and bottom) but it appears exactly the same as the US Blu-ray.

Fingers crossed the few edits on the Blu-ray set are present when they get to those episodes, but I’m not hopeful!

Damn it! 😦

Thanks for checking. You’re right, let’s see what happens. Shall we both record the episodes in question? 😃

Sounds like a plan. I might need a reminder when one is coming up though. Not sure my box has enough room to record the whole run, with all the stuff my kids have on there!

😄 We’d only the need the episodes (movie length?) that are affected on home video. I reckon that between the two of us that we can get this done. Hit me up in PMs?
