Batton Down the Hatches. I’ll veer into television for this retrospective. Seaquest DSV debuted in 1993.
This was a fun Scifi drama. The first season, in particular, was known for its somewhat more realistic scientific bent.
One of the main actors, Jonathan Brandis, played a genius child prodigy. Unfortunately, this promising young actor would tragically die very young in 2003.
I don’t remember a whole lot about this show. It has not been on in syndication lately. That is too bad, because it was good.
In one episode in particular, I remember the prodigy programmed history’s greatest composers into the computer and had it create brand new musical compositions in the style of past musical geniuses like Mach and Mozart.
