Peace 47 October 17, 2020 Share October 17, 2020 Oh wow: I had forgotten that they marketed a special boxed Rambaldi set for the entire show. Did it bestow immortality on you when you opened it? (Bad joke, sorry.) You’re right, @Umbelina, that nearly everything about the show was ahead of its time. One thing that kind of struck me as a “throwback” when I was watching, though, was the score. I mean, even in that series finale, Michael Giacchino was still giving it his all with that orchestration (and doing the heavy dramatic lifting for the ep in my opinion): original leitmotif written just for the finale (the one thing that I remember loving about the finale), swelling orchestral arrangement with an actual orchestra: it was great. I think a lot of shows today have cut back on that and if they need background music, they’ll either license from one of those soundtrack houses and/ or license popular music to fill all the gaps. If they write original music, it’s not scored with a full orchestra, either. I know they released CDs of the original soundtrack for the first couple of season (I own them), but I really wish I could purchase that series finale theme (that starts when Sydney et al. fight off bad guys to follow Sloane down into the cave). It’s the one thing I remember loving about the finale, and it still held up when I was watching. 1 4 Link to comment
