SCC 100 Paper #1
The Lone Ranger’s episode, The Golden Link, was broadcasted on January 3, 1945. I was unable to find the broadcaster as the time for this particular episode. What I noticed at first is that all the episodes start with their theme song that includes trumpets playing as well as bullet sounds. The program reminded me of a parent reading a book to their child since it gives the audience a narrator that tells the listeners what’s going. The sound itself was not that great since it was a bit hard trying to hear what the people are trying to say, especially since the actor’s voices were deep. The music added at certain parts does give a sort of suspenseful effect. The plot started some interest to me since I’m not much of western person but the addition of talking about girls and then about her father, creates some mystery and interest. The sound effect of the background voices does give a good effect when they’re trying to ease drop of those people. Also, the gun shots with women’s voices screaming makes the program more believable. During the middle of the show, there were a lot of voices and sounds which made it a bit hard to understand and follow since the sound quality is poor. For the most part, the acting is believable, especially for a children’s show. I think the story without the images was not so bad. It would be sometime to listen to as a pastime rather than something I would be excited about. Overall, the show was okay but it’s not something that really sparks my interest since the western theme is not something I really like.
