Great Other Than 80's Music
27 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

The series is excellent, great scenery and special effects and story line but the choice of music is so inappropriate for the time period.

Why modern rock style music used?

Other than that its pretty good but the music selections are such out of character for the times back then. Makes me wonder what the producers were thinking.... perhaps they were just lazy or maybe they owed someone in the music industry a favor? Not that I didn't like the music on the series, it would have been better on some coming of age film set in the 90's. Its just not appropriate for that time period and distracted immensely from my enjoyment.

The camera work is very good, the angles and composition excellent, I wish the producers (and possibly director) would have thought about their music choices as much as they did the camera work. Thats why I gave it 5 stars, reissue this with more timely background music and I would update review to 10 stars
