Or elevator music.
Or a progression of homogeneous, bland and nondescript chords which, far from not calling attention to themselves and "distracting" the audience, achieve the opposite effect by being so monumentally dull and insipid you can't help but tune in!

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

I'm not a fan of McCarthy's work overall, but he's had a few good scores. He did his best in Generations, but I question having a TV composer (and a TV director for that matter) doing a feature film. Thank goodness they got Goldsmith back to finish the series. Jay Chattaway was overall pretty good.

But Ron Jones was amazing in pretty much every episode he scored. Q Who and BOBW aside, my favorites of his were Booby Trap, 11001001, Where No Man Has Gone Before. I also liked his amusing work in The Royale and Up the Long Ladder.

Oh, I think he's a terrific composer when given free rein. As evidenced by his early TNG work and the massively underrated Generations.

His scores in the first few seasons were exceptional, I particularly liked his reoccurring Picard's theme. Generations is a great soundtrack too but doesn't reach the heights of a Goldsmith score for me.

When they finally let the composers do their jobs in seasons 3 & 4 of Enterprise Jay Chattaway really ran away with it while McCarthy's scores seemed lacking in comparison (Azati Prime/Damage cliffhanger and resolution being an example)

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Ron Moore wants to do commentaries on EVERY ONE of his episodes? That's awesome. Light up the smoke pipe and bring out the scotch. I hope they do that.

Great read as always FrontierTrek. Thanks again for doing these interviews and posting them here. They've been an absolute pleasure to read.

And there should be an alternate audio track, in which Berman is seen to speak but all you hear is air conditioner noise.

Re: Season THREE OFFICIAL TNG Blu-Ray Discussion Thread

Wow, I would love Moore to come through on that promise. Like Robert says in the interview, it'd be great to finally get a commentary on episodes that did not work. There's only so much fawning over loved eps that I need to hear.

A Sub Rosa commentary? Hell yeah. Might be the only reason to ever watch that ep again.

Agreed. Much like Goldsmith's score for STV, McCarthy's score for Generations is the best part of that movie.

Especially the thrilling music during the space battle (which was just as cool when used on DS9).

Awesome stuff. Interesting views on the later series. I think I agree with them!
