But therein lies a problem... when it's an established series, new music can grow on you (B5's music consistently changed but because in the first series it was dynamic, it hit the ground running). Crusade had no such advantage, it was something new and unusual from scratch and didn't really have a chance to grow on you in a single run.
It grew on me upon repeated watchings of the existing 13 Crusade episodes.

Horrified by it? In my experience, the people who've had the most negative and absolutely unshakeable opinion of somebody else's music, are musicians. It's also possible that people heard that the music was horrible, and adopted that opinion, to fit in, and join in on the bashing rather than stand up to it and maybe get bashed themselves. <shrug>

That one I can't stand. I just and suffer through it.

That one I really liked.

Me, I don't like feckless characters, especially if they're supposed to be leaders. Never liked the actor (Robin Atkin Downes), either. On B5 he played Byron (feckless & passive), and Morann (a weasel, unlikeable Minbari).
