Further to the "Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D." season premiere episode "Orientation", fans are praising the impressive music soundtrack by Emmy winning composer Bear McCreary, also noted for his original music on STARZ' "Outlander" and AMC's "The Walking Dead":
McCreary, originally a classically trained pianist, studied under film score composer Elmer Bernstein, reconstructing and reorchestrating Bernstein's 1963 score for "Kings of the Sun".
From 2003 to 2009 composed the music for the reimagined "Battlestar Galactica".
He then composed for the "BSG" prequel series "Caprica".
McCreary provided the score for the TV series "Human Target", based on the DC Comic's characters, receiving his first Emmy nomination...
...with other notable TV work including "Da Vinci's Demons" and currently "The Walking Dead"...

Sneak Peek 'bad guy' kills from the classic 1950's CBS TV western series "The Rifleman", originally created by writer/director Sam Peckinpah, gaining a new generation of fans for 6' 6" actor Chuck Connors as widower, cattle rancher 'Lucas McCain' and Johnny Crawford as his son 'Mark', airing every Saturday morning on AMC. But one big question always remains: just how many bad guys did good guy McCain kill in total throughout the series entire 5 year run ?
Peckinpah, developed, wrote and directed many of the best episodes from the first season, basing characters and situations on real-life scenarios from his childhood growing up on a ranch.
His insistence on violent realism and complex characterizations, as well as his refusal to sugarcoat the lessons he felt the Rifleman's son needed to learn about life, soon put him at odds with producers at Four Star and he left the show...
...to create another TV series "The Westerner", followed by directing the western features "Major Dundee" and "The Wild Bunch".
The trick feature of The Rifleman's 'rifle' was a screw pin attached to the large loop lever which was positioned so as to trip the trigger when the ring was slammed home, thus allowing Lucas to rapid-fire the rifle, similarly to a semi-automatic rifle.
McCain fires shots from this rifle during the opening credits, swings the rifle to cock it, then reaches for another round from his shirt pocket.
