Who's the boss

Tricia13 said...

also Threes Company (naturally)!

Moose said...

@Tricia13 - Rockford was witty and well acted. Great television in an era when there were not that many great dramas on TV.

The guy who played Sergeant Becker, Joe Santos, was on a rerun of the old Match Game the other week. Really funny guy.

Moose said...

@fionafab...do you know Art of Noise version of the "Peter Gunn" theme? LOVE that. But then, I pretty much love everything Art of Noise did.

Robyn S said...

Hawaii 5-0 by far

Blaise said...

The ding dong from the Law and Order series, FTW.

Humor Me said...

I'm with fionafab:

Peter Gunn !!

Vita said...

James Garner was my first crush, lol! Rockford was a riot!

Peter Gunn & Mission Impossible are awesome songs!

SdAuntie- Monkees-- great one! Loved the bed rolling down the street!

Ugh, no offense to Larry Sanders, but actually thinking of cute little ditty to Garry Shandling Show!

Definitely GoT. And the theme to the Nanny, Friends, Fraser, MASH, and Veronica Mars.

Em and 'im said...

Cheers, Grange Hill and the theme to Wimbledon coverage.

Although I don’t remember the TV series, the theme from Take Three Girls which I think was called Take Flight by Pentangle. I’ve always loved that song and its sixties sound. The LP also had the original 1960s Avengers theme tune and lots of other greats.

Fuchsia said...

Mystery Science Theater 3000. ๐Ÿ’•

I also love the opening to Vikings (History Channel). Goosebumps every time.

Em and 'im said...

Vita, my mother used to practically swoon over James Garner. Now when I see his photo, I can see the attraction. The Rockford Files did have a great theme tune too.

Florin said...

I like a lot of the ones already put forth, but I need to add:

The A-Team

Em and 'im said...

Correction, the Pentangle song was Light Flight.
Thanks Spotify.

Moose said...

@fionafab - their take on "Peter Gunn" is exceptional, but if you want to hear something really special, look for a track called "Moments In Love".

Unknown said...

WKRP in Cincinnati

That base guitar intro to Barney Miller was great.

Sd Auntie said...

+10000 vita. Love that show and detective Wojo๐Ÿ’“

Half Domer Homer said...

Rockford files

Gator said...

Jeopardy, The Partridge Family, The Beverly Hillbillies, The Andy Griffith Show.

Gator said...

Snuggz Bear said...

I can't believe that none of you mentioned the best TV theme song of all time. It is for The Mary Tyler Moore Show. "Who can turn the world on with her smile? Who can take a nothing day, and suddenly make it all seem worthwhile?"

Unknown said...

The Magic Garden with Paula and Carol

momo said...

Green Acres and Petticoat Junction!
That's uncle joe he's a movin kinda slow at the junction...

gauloise said...

Theme from SWAT is seriously funky and stands on its own right.

For kitsch fun: Brady Bunch, Love Boat, Charlies Angels and Dynasty

gauloise said...

Jose Feliciano's Chico and the Man is actually pretty good too

Vita said...

Snuggz & Momo -- totally! Gosh, all of these are great and a fun mental recall exercise!

Little Miss Sunshine said...

Wonder Years is my top favourite. RIP Joe Cocker who sang it better than the Beatles themselves.
Stranger Things - gives me a real spooky feeling. Very similar to X-files.
Narcos - I never skip the into and I don't even understand Spanish.
Fresh Prince of Bel Air - The first hip-hop song I could understand. Pardon me, English is not my first language.

Little Miss Sunshine said...

Also, How to Save a Life of Grey's Anatomy. The most annoying theme song was F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

T. W. said...

First Place - KNIGHT RIDER

Second Place - UNSOLVED MYSTERIES

Third Place - Dr. Who (the song from the 1980's, not the recent ones).

Honorable Mention - Highlander: The Series

I mean, I love all the music. I'm sad that nobody's named The Greatest American Hero. :(

But if you've ever watched King of the Hill, well, that song is just about guaranteed to stick in your brain.
