Netflix Movie Fans

With the season 2 release there was huge uproar with fans of the show because of music in episodes being replaced with musak (sp?). In essence replaced by something that didn't do the original selection justice and destroyed the atmosphere, mood, etc set by the original music. Without going into great detail and ranting on that point (I can do that later if anyone is interested in discussing it) here is what lead me to posting this. I seen that Quantum Leap was available to want instantly. I thought I would see if the music replacement on season 4 and 5 was as horrible as it was on season 2 and 3. To my shock what I watch did not have the changes in the music. Which has me wondering why can the instant watch have the original music but the DVDs had them removed due to reasons that I will also not detail to keep this post short (but we can discuss them if anyone wants to). I haven't checked season 2 and 3. But I believe I will since seeing them on DVD I was upset because the music changes ruined the episodes. Anyways that last sentence I guess was a segue into what I mentioned I'd save for later. Anyone know why the discrepency between IW and DVD? And is the IW season 2 and 3 music also not replaced?

it all comes down to legal rights for the music in question. If the studio has the right to release the music on DVD, it will. If the studio has the right to release the music for digital distribution it will. If whoever has the rights to the music demands huge fees for the music to be released (in whichever format), the studio may choose to replace that music instead of having a gap in the series. Contracts today are written with online and digital rights in mind; contracts that predate a distribution medium need to be re-negotiated.

Good news is, I bet the VHS release is just like the aired release.
That's at least two nice, knowledgeable, helpful answers I've seen this week. You're only responsible for this one, Rachel, but you're on report.
If I'm not careful, they'll put me back on the payroll
How's business these days? I could use a good Venture Bros. costume for Halloween one of these years... :)
I'm on a temporary haitus right now; I was roped back into a real job by a certain someone. But definately contact me when you're ready- Venture Bros would be fun.
I guess what I was trying to understand is why a even newer form of distrobution than the DVD, whomever has the rights to the music would allow the original music for it and not for the DVDs. Like since it was a price gouging issue with the DVDs why didn't they also price gouge for the streaming distribution. Or is streaming classified as broadcast television? That may better explain it since the rights were already purchased for television broadcasting.

On a side note I'd love to obtain copies of the originally aired episodes of the ones that have altered music on disc even if it is a transfer from quality VHS as long as they are from the original airing and not trimmed syndicated versions from reruns.
I have the Season 2 DVD and I don't remember hearing ny different music. I haven't watched it in a while so I will try to watch it and the IW version to see if I can tell any difference.
Season 2 and 3 and some of season 4 had music replacement. I think season 5 was normal as was season 1. Now the UK and the AUssie versions of the DVDs did not have music replacement.
IT is awesome to see these as they originally were aired and not have all the soundtrack edited out. Some shows its not a big deal but QL the music told the story in a way. It helped the scene or gave an idea of what time he was in.
Not for me, really. I am so ignorant of popular music styles that unless it's from around '67 (when I couldn't escape . . . long story) I don't identify anything. I just hear it as "soundtrack" not as evocative of an era.
For most Quantum Leap fans the show's writer, director, etc choice for the music for each episode was an integral part of the telling of the story. The show's style was tied to historical nature and events and to replace the cultural significance of the music carefully chosen to help tell the story completely alters or destroys the story. In season 2 and 3 these changes are obvious because the stuff that replaced the music is that garbage musak junk you hear in an elevator or such where you expect to here junk.

Anyways I'll have to look into getting the other region DVD for the seasons they altered in the US. I think since posting this thread I heard that they finally listened to the fans and the final season or two didn't have any alterations or omissions. I just hope that the few shows I wanted to have on DVD that were butchered are the only exceptions that will ever be made and that someone else will do them properly. I plan on getting all the shows I liked since I was a kid until now. The list is huge so much so that more have come out on DVD than I can afford to buy. A lot of them have come out already so it is just playing catch up for the most part. You will find that wanting the shows as they aired is the norm for those who are buying this stuff on DVD, otherwise we'd all just watch the stuff on reruns on TV, since they hack parts to fit the time slots and to pay less to air them.
I bought season 2 on ebay from the UK for a really good price. I think season 4 had music replacement there though too only the region 4 discs did not on season 4.

I have given thought to seeing if i can find a region 4 of some of the series. But right now since i can stream it anytime i want it works best that way. When its not on Netflix anymore then i will start hunting
