REPLACEMENT MUSIC ON CBS' OFFICIAL ½ SEASON DVD RELEASES OF "THE FUGITIVE"

A goal of this page will be to compare the existing CBS DVD releases with its BOX SET to be released 11/1/11 to see what if anything has been restored.

We wish also, after that set is released, to identify what are not the original night-of-broadcast cues and learn why they were replaced.

 

SEASON 1 - VOLUME 1    released 8/14/07

(DISCS 1, 2, 3, 4)

Not yet detailed but the first 15 episodes were rolled out, for all intents and purposes, intact, save a changeout of an occasional source music cue.

 

SEASON 1 - VOLUME 2    released 2/26/08

(DISCS 1, 2, 3, 4)

Not yet detailed - followed the same playbook as the previous release.

 

SEASON 2 - VOLUME 1 (DISCS 1, 2, 3, 4)    released 6/10/08  -- replacement disc program announced 2/17/09

This was the release which enraged the show's fans and caused CBS much embarrassment. There was an unforewarned changeout of ALL the music save Pete Rugolo's main and end title. This was accomplished via a newly-commissioned synthesized score. Premeditated murder. To add insult to injury, the on-screen end title card was modified giving the hired replacement music team a more favorable credit than Rugolo. The backlash cause CBS to react with a DVD replacement program which perpetuated the aggravation. That resulting release was a hybrid -- original music juxtaposed with the new synthesized music.

Not yet detailed.

 

SEASON 2 - VOLUME 2    released 3/31/09

More misery for FUGITIVE fans--the hybrid approach continues indicating that CBS in still in internal turmoil over music rights and clearances. At least the "credits" of Mark Heyes and his collaborators have disappeared. Something changes during the preparation process for this set as the last 2 shows (and most likely the last 2 re-mixed by CBS) are released intact....

DISC 1

46. "Brass Ring"       NOT YET DETAILED
47. "The End is But the Beginning"       NOT YET DETAILED
48. "Nicest Fella You'd Ever Want to Meet"       NOT YET DETAILED
49. "Fun and Games and party Favors"       NOT YET DETAILED

 

DISC 2

50. "Scapegoat"       NOT YET DETAILED
51. "Corner of Hell"       NOT YET DETAILED
52. "Moon Child"       NOT YET DETAILED
53. "The Survivors"       NOT YET DETAILED

 

DISC 3

54. "Everybody Gets Hit in the Mouth.."       NOT YET DETAILED
55. "May God have Mercy"       NOT YET DETAILED
56. "Masquerade"       NOT YET DETAILED
57. "Runner in the Dark"       NOT YET DETAILED

 

DISC 4

58. "A.P.B"   10:23 - 11:38 underscoring  
      14:41 - 15:57 underscoring  
      19:42 - 20:07 underscoring

60. "Last Second of a Big Dream"       APPEARS TO BE ALL ORIGINAL MUSIC

 

 

SEASON 3 - VOLUME 1    released 10/27/09

Some relief on the music issues. Except for a very few episodes, much original music has been preserved for this release and what is changed is often the incidental music as heard on jukeboxes, radios, etc. These are often the stubborn cues from a clearance standpoint and though not ideal represents a step in the right direction.

SEASON 3 - VOLUME 2    released 12/8/09

A big step backwards. Nearly every episode has substantial underscoring changeouts. This just adds to the confusion. Does CBS really understand the music contained within this show? The whole approach from release to release seems so erratic.
