The negative: Berman is reputed to be the executive who discouraged emotion and melody in the episode music scores, often resulting in a generic ahhhmmm note to tell you when the commercials were starting. Blah.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who thought this way. Bad enough some of the show's producers thought crew conflict was a bad idea, never mind the obvious lack of drama. But then to dilute all the musical composers's work for the sake of.......lower ratings?? Yeesh.

There's another thread where some people are piling on TOS music for being too in-your-face. But if you compare the two, I much prefer TOS music and acting style to the TNG shows. Music in the mid to late 80s on TV was pretty terrible across the board, because it was then that synths started to supplant acoustic instruments, and it resulted in stuff that sounded more at home to the intro of a Sega Genesis game than a TV show about space exploration.
