Watching St. Elsewhere on Hulu or elsewhere? Feel free to comment on this episode below.


  1. This episode features a rerecorded version of the classic theme by Dave Grusin.

    1. Do you know why they did this? I just noticed the theme song is different on this episode.

    2. I don't know. My guess is there was a technical problem when these were created for syndication (which is probably what is available on Hulu) and they needed a theme quickly. It's strange.

    3. It wasn't a rush job. There are actual instruments mixed into this new theme, (French horns, drumset, strings and winds), and some "development, with a section added for Sagan Lewis' (Dr. Jacqueline Wade) face shot in the title sequence.

      Speaking as a music composer, it seems to me all of that would have taken significant time to compose, rehearse and record, as well as reshoot much of the title sequence.

      All for one episode.

      I wonder why, as well.

  2. Do you know why they did this? I noticed the theme song for this episode is different.
