Well, more than the music, I'd say the directing, acting, and cinematography made it great. Was very 'atmospheric,' which I guess I can see putting down to the music (though I'd disagree).

After last night's ep, I thought, did the show even have ONE plot twist? Maybe not!

@davidwatts: I liked that it didn't have a twist. We've had so many "it's the last person you'd ever suspect!" (Top of Lake, Broadchurch) that it's almost become cliche.

I mean, I enjoy watching bad 90s crime thrillers, so.

No

Citizen Kane was just some flick about a sled.

@freetzy 99% of Mona Lisa's effectiveness is da Vinci's paint work. The woman in the picture is blah.

It's a well-demonstrated fact that excellent music/scoring/SFX significantly alters our perception of visual media, in a more-engaging and enjoyable dimension. It's why music/scoring/SFX get awards in visual media industries.

Am I going to be bitter that something entertained me MORE than a similar work that cheaped out on the audio elements?

Suck it, haters

@brianvan Hell, I've added entire stars to my IMDB movie ratings just for great closing credits music. In general, it's easy to manipulate me into liking art just because it's beautiful, even though it doesn't "add value".

Absolutely true. Or put another way: The writing wasn't that good. The camerawork, acting, and music all were.

@deepomega Overrated or the most overrated?
I mean, it was fine. But EVERY WHITE DUDE LOVED IT MORE THAN LIFE ITSELF.

@IBentMyWookie The really weird thing is how much I'm enjoying Helix, which is far worse written.

@deepomega Sundance Channel's Rectify does mystery, existential angst, Southern Gothic, et al. 1000,000X better

Yeah, but I'm so there for 90s crime thrillers, 1995 Rusty's sinewy body and angel hair, and 2012 Marty alone in the dark with his TV dinner and online dating profiles.
