  1. Penderghast says:

    I have nothing against Trapanese, but this is an absolutely shitty thing to do on the showrunners’ part. The first season’s score was awesome, establishing good themes and a distinctive sound. I’m baffled by this decision of switching a winning team.

  2. Fan says:

    I listen to the score of 1st season on a daily basis and I’m in love with it.

    Sadly the second season did not introduce a single memorable melody!
