Music is often an integral part of a TV show, especially the opening theme. Last week, I shared ten of my favorite, most memorable themes from sci-fi/fantasy and action/adventure series of the past few decades. As promised, this week we continue by easing our way into the 1980s and up to the present. I hope you enjoy them, especially if you’re old enough to remember watching some of these yourself.
Are we ready? Continuing in chronological order…
11) The Incredible Hulk (1978-1982)
The “Lonely Man” ending theme was particularly poignant and memorable, too.
12) Magnum, P.I. (1980-1988)
13) The Greatest American Hero (1981-1983)
14) Knight Rider (1982-1986)
15) The A-Team (1983-1987)
16) Miami Vice (1984-1990)
17) Star Trek: TNG (1987-1994)
18) Quantum Leap (1989-1993)
19) The X-Files (1993-)
20) Game of Thrones (2011-)
There you have ’em! Wow, that brought back a lot of good memories, going through all of those plus several I left out! And, since I couldn’t even bring myself to stop at twenty, here are five more honorable mentions: Return of the Saint (1978-1979), The Fall Guy (1981-1986), Airwolf (1984-1986), Babylon 5 (1994-1998), Alias (2001-2006)
Now, when am I gonna find the time to track down and binge-watch these shows again…?
