The theme song ‘It Won’t Be Easy’ by Justin Hayward.

This is not just the theme, it’s the entire first scene from the first show! The directing borders on the inept, but you can easily see the sheer brilliance of the script.
The theme alone has been up on YouTube at least once and was DMCA takedowned.
Go see this before it happens again!
In an interview, series creator Chris Boucher revealed that he absolutely hated the theme song the producer put on the series. I think he’s wrong to do so. It fits the series perfectly. It ties in with a critical plot point. It’s also very melancholic, which is a key point of the series lead character, Nathan Spring.
Brits have had this on DVD for several years. Dammit, I want it here in the U.S. too!
