Interview: Noted composer Bear McCreary joins us this week to talk about his experience composing and recording the amazing score for SciFi Channel’s “Battlestar Galactica”, and the upcoming second season of “Eureka”.
In its first season, SciFi’s hit series “Eureka” got a lot of milage out of the love triangle between Nathan Stark, Allison Blake and Jack Carter. As the first season ended, Allison had replaced Stark as the head of the secretive Global Dynamics and the potential romance between Allison and Carter was left to simmer during the hiatus.
“Eureka” returns for its second season on July 10.
