    Hah, not saying whether Thowra wears hearing aids or not but I've heard church organists say when they get complaints that they're playing their organs too loud, a lot of times it's from older folks who wear hearing aids.

    It's certainly bombastic, but it's also one of the most distinctive (if not the definitive) TOS scores. I love it.

    I suppose it’s because both the scripting and acting is so good that I want to be able to concentrate on it!

    If you have a Bose speaker system, change the Audio Compression setting to "Smart Volume". That reduces the range of volume levels in a movie soundtrack so differences between loud and soft sounds are less noticeable. Other speaker systems might have a similar setting.
