    QUANTUM LEAP (Original series) - Episodes are 100% NOT in the right order

    Quantum Leap (original series) was set up in such a way that at the end of each episode, Sam 'leaped' into the next scenario as a sort of lead in to the next episode.

    Due this, is is quite easy to notice that the episode order on VUDU is horribly out of sequence. In fact, some are even in the wrong season!

    It does look like Vudu has some errors. Season 1 is supposed to have 9 episodes. For some reason episode 10 "What Price Gloria?" and episode 11 "A Portrait For Troian" were taken from season 2 and stuck at the end of season 1. That needs to be fixed, if you check the air dates on wikipedia you'll see those two shows clearly belong in season 2.

    Having seen that error it doesn't actually mean that all of the episodes are out of order. This 'leap in' stuff was a big gaff by the studio NBC back when the show was airing. I've seen the show on DVD before in the correct order and the 'leap in' at the end of the episode doesn't always match up with the start of the next episode. Most of them line up in the first season but after that it's a mess. My understanding is that this is how the episodes were originally created and how they appeared on their original broadcast run.

    When there was a new episode next week the leap in at the end of the current episode matched up perfectly with the start of the next episode. But if there was no new episode the following week and NBC was going to air a rerun instead they designed it so that the leap in would connect to the rerun episode that was scheduled to air. This was a horrible decision by the studio at the time because decades later it's screwed up the presentation on DVD and streaming. But when originally airing on TV it did line up for repeat episodes, unfortunately this is how the episodes were originally created so when you watch them in the correct order on DVD or streaming the leap ins are all screwed up much of the time. You end up seeing the same leap ins more than once, even for past seasons as you say, it's horrible.

    The only way to fix this would be for the studio to edit the episode to remove the duplicate leap ins so everything lines up. But if they did do that it would no longer be the original aired episodes anymore, they'd be alternate versions so I doubt that would ever happen. You just have to put up with it unfortunately and it is very annoying!
