Bakula. He was a think back in the 1980's.

I've been a fan of the show since I first saw it. I enjoyed the scoring as well.
This isn't something I'll necessarily do every day, but I wanted to go through some episodes.

Now, you can watch some of the episodes (I don't know how many) at nbc.com (Hulu has them blocked for Hulu+ users), but I can't get any of them to play. Maybe you can.

    By: Mike Post
    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x45z5zq

    Highlights:
  • 1:40 in.
  • 6:24 in.
  • About 8:10 in.
  • 8:29 in: Ron Jones did additional uncredited work for Post on various series and I think this short cue is by him, based on his ST: TNG work.
  • 12:10 in.
  • 13:40 in.
  • 17:07 in. Some action material with a little sax' thrown in.
  • 20:53 in.
  • About 26:30 in.
  • 43:28 in.



    "Star-Crossed"
    By: Mike Post
    https://vimeo.com/40588097b

    Highlights:
  • 3:52 in.
  • 23:45 in.
  • 27:20 in: a pleasant cue playing the secondary series' theme with an alto flute and a comfy '80's sound backing it.
  • 42:15 in.



    "The Right Hand of God"
    By: Mike Post
    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x46iqb5

    Highlights:
  • 8:29 in.
  • 16:50 in.
  • 21:37: a softer take on the "Rocky" training montage music. Little to no FX. More at about 25:40 in, though more brassy and with some electric guitar.
  • 28:28 in.
  • 31:44 in.

    Sam: "What unknown variables?"
    Al: "Well ... if we knew the unknown, thee unknown wouldn't be unknown."



    Had to skip "How the Tess Was Won" (no load found).



    "Double Identity"
    By: Mike Post
    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x46q47r

    Highlights:
  • About 37:40 in.

    There's very little scoring in the episode.

    Sam: "Maybe I'm hear to start the uni-sex revolution."

    "Honeymoon Express" (season two premiere)
    By: Mike Post
    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xw1lao

    Highlights:
  • 8:09 in.
  • 16:09 in. It continues after the commercial.
  • About 25:25 in.
  • 27:33 in.
  • 32:27 in.
  • 37:03 in: a long action/chase cue. About three minutes.
  • 41:38 in.
  • 47:27: short funky disco music. The only actual case I know of from Post.

    None of that wimp-out pussy crap about guns Richard Dean Anderson brought to two TV series. Sam may not care for guns, but when he needed one, he went for one. Twice.

    The way the episode was handled, I'm wondering if this was shot as the season one finale and that it was acting like maybe the series might not be picked back up, and shuffled to the season two premiere.

    It doesn't make any sense whatsoever that history can be changed and yet Congressmen expect to know that when they read history books, and Al can know.

    Al: "While I got back to put research online, you're going to have to face a beautiful woman who wants to spend the entire night making mad passionate love to you. It's a dirty job ... but somebody's got to do it."



    Had to skip episodes and go to episode eight.



    "Jimmy"
    By: Mike Post
    "Contributing Musical Composers": Velton Ray Bunch and Jerry Grant.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ucjQ6TfM0A

    Highlights:
  • Around 0:10 in: the somber string piece.
  • About 0:35 in.
  • 19:10 in.
  • 25:07 in.
  • 29:08 in.
  • 35:01 in.
  • 40:05 in. There's a brief lull.
  • 46:37 in.

    A good episode.

    Al: "Ah, we've been having some difficulty with Ziggy; he's ah, going through mood swings. I think we need to get a girl computer -- put it right next to him. You know, one with a set of nice hard disks..."
    Sam: "You would."

    Doubling back since I found out NBC.com has episodes up for free. As opposed to Hulu, which has none up for free. Why even use Hulu then?

    Like ShareTV, the clock is counting down, so remember these time indexes are for the time counting down. I'll give estimations though based on hovering the mouse over the spots.



    "How the Tess Was Won"
    By: Mike Post
    https://www.nbc.com/classic-tv/quantum-leap/video/how-the-tess-was-won---september-28-1956/n3616

    Highlights:
  • 35:51 (maybe 12:00 in).
  • 34:42 (maybe 13:30 in). some more though not as driving, at 32:25.
  • 30:45 (maybe 17:00 in).
  • 29:54 (maybe 18:00 in). It's short, but nice.
  • 15:50 (maybe 32:00 in: a soft woodwind piece, followed by some '80's material.
  • About 13:00 (maybe 35:00 in): horse riding music with the series' theme.
  • 9:40 (maybe 38:30 in). Softer material. There's a brief lull.

    This episode score brings in some light western sounds and stylings. Nothing great, mind you.

    That's the second of third hand-held device design Al has carried. A number of little things changed during the first season. Obviously it wasn't all thought out too well.



    "The Color of Truth"
    By: Mike Post
    https://www.nbc.com/classic-tv/quantum-leap/video/the-color-of-truth---august-8-1955/n3618

    Highlights:
  • 40:46 (maybe 6:40 in): a nice laid back piece with some guitar.
  • 39:40 (maybe 7:50 in).
  • 17:10 (maybe 30:30 in).
  • 13:55 (maybe 33:30 in).
  • 9:50 (maybe 37:50 in).
  • 2:46 (maybe 44:50 in).

    A good episode.

    Just ordered a used copy of the GNP CD which I missed years ago. Looking forward to getting that one, really loved this show too.
