Is there a breakdown of who composed what? I believe they did roughly half the season each?

What? Giving people proper credit? That's crazy talk.


If I remember correctly, it breaks down like this: Elfman’s only solo credit is episode 1, the next few are Elfman/Bacon, then the last four are Bacon alone (though every episode’s score leans HEAVILY on Elfman’s theme).

Show is AWFUL. Just pluck a character out of pop culture and throw them into a Harry Potter mystery. Bullshit. Score was a fun listen on its own, thanks to the use of actual melody (usually Elfman’s theme on various instruments).

The trailers were pretty dire, despite some awesome casting.

Remember when composers wrote iconic and memorable themes? I think that ended in the 90's. So what's this show about? A little girl who murders other kids or was that teaser a dream sequence?

Had my doubts, but I'm really enjoying it! Creepy fun, not trying to be anything that it isn't. I really like how the music works in it. It's pretty obvious Elfman didn't score it, with the exception of perhaps one or two key scenes. His themes from the main titles were deconstructed and used throughout. Bacon spotted it really effectively.

It’s The Addams Family trying to be Harry Potter/Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina! The whole show is trying to be something it isn’t.

Still, at least the music is good.

This show and music is fabulous. The paint it black on cello...wow!

Yes, being harsh, its premise is goth girl with attitude goes to a sort of hogwarts comprehensive, but. But...but...the lines from Wednesday Addams are delicious!! Brilliant cast.
Guzman and zeta jones are superb and the headmistress, who i knew but couldnt place, was bloody Brienne of Tarth from Game of thrones.

Best of all?? "Thing" steals the whole show. Its fucking genius.

At one point Gomez ends up behind bars, Wednesday goes to visit him and sits across the booth ...Thing climbs up the glass partition and does 'boat drinks' with Gomez!! Made me laugh.

A lot of it has. And im hard to please
