Jump to content

Because TV ratings are down or something. My #1 pick might not be a real TV show, but it blows all the rest of them away.

5. Cheers

4. Greatest American Hero

3. Dukes of Hazzard

2. Psych (I know You Know)

1. Too Many cooks

My Mind is Clean

As a child of the '60s it was:

(I would've nominated Mannix but I'm not positive there WAS a theme song)

Meh. nevermind.

I can't even recall the numbers of times I've posted that on this board: "Don't do the crime if you can't do the time."
"Don't go to bed with no price on your head,
Don't do it.
Don't do the crime if you can't do the time.
Don't do it.
Don't roll the dice if you can't pay the price,
Don't do it.
Don't run your feet down a dead-end street.
Don't do it."

That's GOTTA be the best TV theme ever.
I'm a sucker for 80's sitcom themes, and Cheers is the best by far.

MASH's is also one I have good memories of.
Peter Gunn

Man From U.N.C.L.E.

The Andy Griffith Show


The Beverly Hillbillies
Oh yeah, and Perry Mason
You've gotta add Hawaii 5-0. It was a top hit!
Green Acres



The Adams Family

I can't believe it took so many posts to get to Miami Vice, Magnum P.I., and Barney Miller.

What's wrong with you people?!? :lol:

I'll also add the theme to Sledge Hammer!

From my time in Japan, I recommend the theme to Boss, performed by Superfly:

Although that wasn't written for the show, and was a hit for Superfly, so maybe it doesn't count. With that in mind, here is the OST (original soundtrack) for Ando Lloyd (say it with a Japanese accent, and you'll get it):


And also the OST for Galileo, which was written and performed by the actor (Fukuyama Masaharu) who portrayed the main character in the series.

Kolchak the Night Stalker

Sunday Night Mystery: Columbo/Quincey/McCloud/McMillan and Wife
Greatest AMERICAN tv theme. I can think of many classic British tv themes that knock all that top 5 bar Hill Street into a cocked hat.
Sorry, nothing in Britain touches Dukes of Hazzard, or Greatest American Hero. I would add to that also, M*A*S*H.

Go to my UK theme thread. And admit your mistake.

World's Shortest Movie Reviews
American Sniper: Bradly Cooper=Best Actor
The Arroyo: Had a Pureflix feel to the acting, but well shot. Great conservative movie.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies: As usual, the third installment is the best--having an ending really helped.
The Maze Runner: The perfect metaphor for moving to Detroit.
Dumb and Dumber To: More jokes. Cruder jokes. Someone gets hooked on crack.
Snowpiercer: Joe Biden's idea of heaven. Everyone on the Earth living on a train. Captain America admits he was going to eat Billy Elliot.
Hunger Games: Catching Fire: This is what the world would look like without college football.
Interstellar 2001:A Space Odyssey with a soul. You will get very thirsty, so hydrate before viewing.
When the Game Stands Tall Proves my theory that it's worse when you win.
Guardians of the Galaxy Make a fun adventure movie about space and make a ton of money. Who knew? I mean, besides that Lucas guy.
Blended I don't get the "Billy Madison is genius, Blended is crap" review. It's as good as any other Sandler movie.
Mom's Night Out Hilarious. You will laugh unless you drive a black BMW and watch sunsets at the golf course.
The Amazing Spiderman 2 This series is still better than the Toby McGuire one. I actually cared if Gwen Stacy died.
Odd Thomas I understand the critics who didn't like the uneven tone. Way uneven. Still worth watching on Netflix.
Star Trek Into DarknessGood movie. Please, for the love of tribbles, let old Spock die.
Grown Ups 2 Critics, attack. Whatever you want to say about this one, I'm okay with it.
Thor: The Dark World Still very, very good. But I'd like an entire Thor movie set just in Asgard.
