The plot of this series could be totally as unexpected as: dinosaurs get out of control and starts to kill people!

I have conducted an interview with Leo Birenberg, composer of this series, for my channel.  Hope you guys enjoy. It includes music from the show throughout as we talk (over it), but one of the cues pl

I'll watch it - hung over - tomorrow.

Strange. Because it premieres on Netflix on the 18th of September; just a couple of weeks away. It should have had a few more credits on IMDB etc. by now.

 

It's very odd. IMDb doesn't even have a cast list, despite Wikipedia and other sources having that list.

Interesting choice! I like what Birenberg did on RED ARMY. And while his and Zach Robinson's work on COBRA KAI was uneven, there are some great highlights. You can check out my review of the latter here: http://celluloidtunes.no/cobra-kai-zach-robinson-leo-birenberg/

 

I'm just relieved it's not Giacchino or Göransson.

 

I had kinda hoped Jared Emerson-Johnson would do this, as he's done some fine work for Telltale games, in emulating Silvestri for their BTTF video game, McCreary in the WALKING DEAD game and, most importantly, JURASSIC PARK in that game.

As promised, I watched this whole thing yesterday - while seriously hung over after a video meeting with Maintitles and FSM on Friday - and it's fairly OK for what it is. As Luke says, it's more interesting for the world building than the actual storyline. Funny with those intersections with the JURASSIC WORLD movie along the way, as seen from a distance etc.

 

The score was also pretty much like I had expected - plenty of references to the Williams (and sadly Giacchino) themes, some original music. But all of it performed by synth samples, I think. Maybe doubled with a few acoustic instruments. Correct me if I'm wrong. I'll reserve further judgement untill I've heard it on album.

Being a fan of Jurassic (my avatar and sig speaks for themselves lol), I was mostly happy with this! I do wish this had been a more adult animated show, but then again this was never advertised to have been a dark and serious anime-type thing. ;) But it was a lot of fun! And not SO childish that it was hard to watch at all (unlike the Lego animated shows for Jurassic that are just TOO cute and overly goofy for me to ever watch more than a minute before deciding not to continue). I wouldn't scream that it was perfect like some people in the Jurassic fanbase are saying, but it was better than expected AND has potential to get even more interesting with plot threads it has introduced. Also, for anyone who ever played the Telltale Game for Jurassic Park, there are some interesting similarities with approach that I actually thought were really cool. And the endless easter eggs were of course awesome, haha.

 

Music was pretty good, too! It's really interesting... the Williams callbacks are WAY more frequent than Giacchino! In fact I BARELY remember any callbacks to his themes, really. Given the color schemes and other choices the show made, it definitely feels like it caters to fans of the original Jurassic Park more than Jurassic World. It just happens to take place in World instead lol. And while it felt largely synthetic, the orchestrations and ideas in this score were really fun, including the original material. There is a scene in a underground river that has a really nice musical moment that is original music. For Williams, well, the best reprise of the main JP "Island" theme happens in the very first episode as they arrive to the camp and... it honestly gave me more chills than how Giacchino used any Williams references in Jurassic World or Fallen Kingdom! Oh and the JP carnivore motif is all over the place! LOL. It's hilarious to me because Giacchino still has not used it at all in the World films, as far as I can recall! It almost reminded me of how Don Davis used it frequently in Jurassic Park 3. I do think it's odd that Giacchino's Indominus Rex theme/motif didn't make an appearance given the dinosaur is in the show... or maybe I just missed it.

 

I hope there is at least a promo album soon!
