Watchmen is pretty good, but they need to turn down the music.

I have gotten back around to HBO’s Watchmen series after having forgotten about it for a few months. I watched the third episode last night. Overall, I like the show, but one consistent gripe I have is the music.

While I am a pretty big Trent Reznor fan, I find myself getting annoyed every time his soundtrack kicks in during a scene. The midi is too distinctive and prominent in the mix, and it distracts from whatever happens to be going on in the story. It’s like someone suddenly walks through the scene shouting “HERE IS SOME TRENT REZNOR MUSIC!”
