So The Sarah Connor Chronicles is back for a new season. And I have to say that I, for one, was not disappointed. Everything picked up exactly where last season’s finale left off — from the clever plot to the urgent tone to the fantastic use of spiritual music and slow motion to build an exciting opening scene. Here’s what FOX has to say about the music:
“The song is an original arrangement of a gospel spiritual called ‘Samson and Delilah,’ composed by the Rev. Gary Davis. The track is performed by Shirley Manson and arranged and produced by Bear McCreary … specifically … to fit the episode’s opening sequence.” For those who don’t realize, Bear McCreary is the composer for Battlestar Galactica, and has been the genius behind everything from that show’s opening credits to the adaptation of “All Along the Watchtower” used in the Season 3 finale. So I’m thrilled to hear that he’ll be scoring this show.
