  3. I see some knucklehead is already throwing out five-star praise for a DVD collection that has not yet been released. As with the yet-to-be-released Season Three Volume One set, I again offer a one-star review as a counter. And again, it all comes back to the music fiasco.

    As most everyone concerned knows, the Season Two sets, in one way or another, were bastardized by CBS/Paramount via the removal of the series’ original music in exchange for a computerized synthesizer score by some person named Mark Heyes.

    The Heyes music ruined the enjoyment for many because it did not fit with the era. Heyes’ music was better suited for a straight-to-youtube production. At this point, nobody other than the suits at CBS knows whether Heyes’ services were utilized again to continue the ruination of one of the best television series ever created for the Season Three volumes. Until that information is made public, fans of the series who can’t stomach watching it with Mark Heyes music are urged to stay away.

    If it turns out the Season Three volumes return to Season One standards, i.e. an absence of Heyes and most of the original music intact, I’ll gladly remove this one-star review.

  4. So far, I’ve watched disc two, then disc one, and the last episode on disc 4, and they were all great. Why did I start on disc two? Every time I buy CDs or DVDs, I immediately check the playing surface of each one to see if there’s much in the way of little scratches, scuffs, and so forth.

    Indeed, there were some tiny, perfectly aligned (with the circular shape of the disc) scratches on disc two about a third of the way from the beginning. Obviously, it had “spun” on the spool in the factory (having worked for a time at EMI Canada, discs are handled and packaged by hand), and though everyone tries their utmost to keep everything perfect, things can happen, especially during rush orders. Still, if a disc is a little scratched, or scuffed, it will still usually play perfectly, though it doesn’t hurt to check.

    So, whilst checking the episodes most likely affected by the scratches (which ended up not being affected whatsoever), I also listened for any dubbed-in cheesy synth music. I’m a musician, and I heard (at least on most of these episodes), nothing but real strings, orchestra or whatever. If any of it was “synthesized”, then I was amazingly fooled! And if I was, then I can live with it, if it sounds that authentic and sincere.

    Mind you, aside from the first two discs, along with the very last episode on the final disc, I’ve yet to watch any of the other episodes, and honestly there’s absolutely nothing nearly as terrible as what some people have made out! On rare occasions, I might hear a brief “zing” or something that sounds like a zither (an old German stringed instrument), that sounds slightly unusual, but effective which may have been part of the original soundtrack.

    I jumped to the very last episode “Coralee”, since it seemed to get the most negative criticism for dubbed-in synthesizer music. I felt I’d better listen to it fairly soon, in case it was so horrid that I might want to negotiate with Amazon in order to return it. But to be perfectly honest, it wasn’t bad at all! In fact, what really puzzles me, is how people can remember the exact background music from over 40 years ago! I saw this when I was a kid, and I don’t remember much other than the usual theme music, and certain familiar refrains, now and again.

    In the final analysis,(because of all the negative reviews), I now find myself listening for the “new” music more often than I’d like to, and am very grateful when I forget to, which means I then get to simply enjoy the show!

    For those who are extremely angry, and have refused to purchase any more seasons, I’d suggest trying to hold off for at least a year, because once the final season (no. 4, I believe) is released, I wouldn’t be surprised to see CBS eventually release a “complete” Fugitive box set advertising “all original music”, along with special features, etc.

    Of course, I’d have preferred to hear all the original music as well, but there are far too many other things in life, far more important to worry about!

    If you’re a fan of The Fugitive, you have to get this. I found the video sharp, the audio just fine, and the stories as good as when I first saw them. I hope Season 4 will come out soon.
