What about Snow's work in "The X-Files" (I am not familiar with his other projects)? He used synth extensively, but with remarkable effect. I am very fond of his underscore, it was quite original and worked great even outside the series.

(just because it's in HD and I just got HD cable)

It's nice isn't it?

I rarely watch regular cable anymore.

Unfortunately scoring with a synth is probably much cheaper than using an orchestra. Gotta cut costs somewhere.

Who the hell came up with the idea of synth music in a period film?

Vangelis and Moroder. I don't blame them, though, because I like the scores for their movies very much.

It's kind of like blaming "Gladiator" for "Troy," "Alexander," "300" and TV's "Rome." You should blame studios for thinking they could capitalize on a genre.

I've gotten used to it, but found it annoying at first. I like the sound they came up with for Sylar, but the constant vocals annoyed me, especially in the beginning.

And there's a piano hero theme that seems like it's directly ripped off the Hero theme from Unbreakable. I've heard it being used in some scenes with Nikki, but I don't think it's a theme for her. The use it for Mohinder's opening and closing narration too, sometimes.
