Re: Worst tv show theme songs

seaQuest 2032's theme song was pretty terrible, especially in comparison in to the seaQuest DSV theme.

Enterprise is so far the only TV theme I have muted.

Law and Order.

because the uk channel it was on changed the theme to a really awesome one and i had no idea the original was such a dreary piece of music until recently.

also, Firefly.

Re: Worst tv show theme songs

I agree with those who'd mentioned ENT's season 3-4 variant (the original version of "Faith of the Heart" was actually pretty tolerable IMO) and SeaQuest 2032 (the original SeaQuest DSV theme was actually really good!).

Many of the TV themes of the 80s and 90s, which may have sounded good at the time (?), have not aged well - The Facts of Life is the first that comes to mind.

Lost and Threshold had those horrible sound effects instead of theme songs.
What they did for Lost was appropriate. It went well with the show's eerie ominous tone. If they did do a full theme & credits sequence, something like what they're doing with The Walking Dead might have worked.

I liked that they did something different. To me, it was preferable to yet another orchestral piece.

Re: Worst tv show theme songs

I'm going with any/all versions of the "Enterprise" theme.

And 99 % of all 80s-90s ABC "Family Sitcoms" with their generic pop rock ballads about togetherness or whatever. Not only did they all suck, but I swear: you could have randomly suffled the "Full House," "Family Matters," "Step by Step," "Just the Ten of Us," "Who's the Boss," "Perfect Strangers," etc. theme songs among the different shows each week and no one would have noticed the difference, they were that generic.

the A team, Knight Rider awful!
I LOVED the A-Team theme; I thought it was perfect; it set the mood for the show really well. The theme songs I really hated were all the sappy little tunes, like G-man said, that could easily belong to any other show: Family Ties, Perfect Strangers, Full House, etc. Blah.

Re: Worst tv show theme songs

I actually liked the theme for SeaQuest 2032. Sometimes I watch the beginning of an episode on Netflix just to hear the theme. I liked the music on the other seasons but not as much.

One theme I really can't stand is Three's Company.

Family Ties
I was not a fan of that one, personally, but the fact it was sung by Johnny Mathis gave it some quality that most of the later ABC ripoffs lacked.

"Three's Company," like "Charles in Charge," was actually so bad it was kind of good IMO.

I disagree, the original theme music to L&O as on the DVD's and FX is the better theme, rather than peice of junk that five (is it) uses. But then again how much of that is down to getting used to one before hearing the other.

Enterprise S3-4 as well.

Nothing, NOTHING compares to the awfulness that was the theme for Dogtanian and the Three Muskehounds.
