I found the following quote on the "This Is Who We Are" Millennium message board:
| Hi, all. This is my first post. Anyway, I had a question: |
Maybe I'm wrong about this, but isn't there supposed to be opera music playing while the Old Man is stabbed to death? On my DVD copy, there's no music at all. Just wondering . . .
| Looks like you're onto something. I never saw any of the "Millennium" episodes when they aired (I was introduced to them on DVD) so I never noticed this, but I did find the following quote on the internet: |
| the episode "Roosters" brought us the violent death of the Old Man to the tune of Wagner's prelude to "Parsifal" in a truly stunning sequence. |
I went back and checked my DVD and sure enough, there is a decidedly noticeable lack of music when the Old Man is murdered, there isn't any Mark Snow score or the Wagner music that should be there. Music removal or replacement is not uncommon when TV shows are released on DVD but it's usually for legal reasons. Wagner's music is not only in the public domain (meaning it's free for anyone to use) it's also featured earlier in the episode on that very DVD. This looks like a mistake Fox made. Hopefully they'll offer replacements when this is brought to their attention. I'm gonna post this on some DVD forums and I'll report back here if I find an e-mail address or phone number we can call in hopes of getting Fox to issue a corrected version.
So, does anyone know how to get the ball rolling on trying to get Fox to correct this mistake? As I said above, this can't be a rights issue because the music is public domain and appears elsewhere in the episode.

Do you have any idea what it's like? Everywhere I go: "Hey Cartman you must like 'Family Guy,' right?" "Hey, your sense of humor reminds me of...
