Excellent period series let down by inappropriate score
20 October 2017 | by stk74See all my reviews

'Harlots' is well written, well acted and well researched. It would have the perfect 18th century feel if it wasn't for the score, which has a punk feel to it. It seems that the producers chose to do a Sophia Coppola. Her 'Marie Antoinette' could have had its charms...but the score made it unbearable. In 'Harlots', the score doesn't feature so imposingly so the show still keeps a period feel when the music doesn't play. Whenever it features, the mood is broken. It's a real shame as the show is otherwise excellent. Don't tell me that I do not get the 'making a connection to our times' thing. This connection is inevitable, seeing as the show is a product of our times. It is however set in 18th century and music does set the mood. Intentionally selecting an inappropriate score strikes me as a form of snob-ism.
