They’ve gone and done it again! No explanation. No apparent reason. No earthly logical reason why changing the introduction music to a TV show is a cunning plan… unless of course it’s to save royalties because the original artists were starting to get greedy about it.
Watched Bones S08E01 tonight and got 5 minutes in only to discover that they have changed the intro music/sequence and it is now a watered down pathetic version of it’s former self. Why? Especially after seven successful seasons where they have indelibly imprinted the associations in our brains between that particular piece of music and their show?!? I’m sure you can damn well get it as a ring tone for crying out loud. To change it, well… it makes no sense!!!
I may have railed against this in the past in regards to ‘The Unit’ and ‘Veronica Mars’ amongst other shows, but I just don’t understand why (when you’re obviously on a winning formula) you decide to fuck with it?
I was quite disappointed to hear the new intro, it’s like a cheap knockoff version of itself and it no longer has the same connotations as the original Bones tune… it was all I could do not to switch it off in disgust and never come back!
