    Charmed (because it's from my childhood)

    Hustle (the first version). The opening music and credits are really nice

    There are loads and now I'm thinking about it a lot of them are 80's cartoons but this is probably my favourite.

    Game of Thrones because it is gorgeous, Friends because of nostalgia and wonderfulness, Downton Abbey because it is so pretty, New Girl because it is so quirky and Shameless (US) because it tells you everything you need to know about the show in one minute, you can decide pretty quickly if you're going to continue watching after you see it.

    I'd have to say Doctor Who. It's just so simple and singable, and yeah no.
    I really do like the Dr. Who theme song, and Sherlock. Other than that, I don't watch much TV.

    big bang theory - we once made the theme song out of jenga bricks (walls, pyramids etc.) And firefly has a pretty awesome one.

    My absolute favorite theme songs are Psych and Monk. They're just so good! I also really like the ones from Doctor Who, Sherlock and Merlin.
  • Pokemon (First one only), Psych(duh!), Big Bang Theory, and Once Upon A Time.

    i dont watch a whole lot of shows, but Big Bang Theory and True Blood are the ones with my favourite theme songs

    My favorite is Survivor, since in is simple, beautiful, and truly reflective of the series's nature and origin. Weird how no one has mentioned it yet.

  • I like songs I can sing along to or that stick in my head. So tBBT, Pokemon... Digimon lately but that's more of a hate to love/love to hate situation omg sailor moon. 
    Why does anime have such great opening music??

    I get so worked up when watching theme songs and can't help but belt it out along with it.  This makes it difficult to narrow it down to a few....

    Does Arrested Development count?  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zYqPs0LInls

    Sanford and Son's theme by Quincy Jones is a jam!
    And the theme to The Mary Tyler Moore Show is really well-crafted.

    And True Blood

    Gotta be How I Met Your Mother. Since it's my "watch when you feel crappy" show, the theme song is always a good pick me up.

    Other than that, The Office theme is always pretty fun.
  • goldeneaglegoldeneagle Posts: 350 ✭✭
    Doctor Who, Sherlock, Star Trek: TOS, ST: TNG, and . . . well, the other theme songs coming to mind are for movies. Except for The Simpsons' theme.

    I know it's already been said but hands down, Psych wins. 
    Plus, one time Boyz II Men did a version of the theme for an episode and it's freaking killer.

    EDIT: Also, the themes for Cowboy Bebop are pretty catchy, too.

    ...at least from I saw, haha, correct me if I'm wrong.  

    Also, Scrubs is of course a favorite. ♡

    I think Misfits definitely has to be up there by virtue of The Rapture just being awesome. :I

    Definitely agreeing with The Big Bang Theory and Game of Thrones here... but even thought it's not TECHNICALLY a theme song, why has no-one mentioned Carry On Wayward Son for Supernatural?

    Probably Game of Thrones, Psych and Fringe.
  • EddiPooEddiPoo UtahPosts: 8
    I like to marathon my shows so I usually get really sick of hearing a theme song like ten times in one day, but I have to say that Game of Thrones and Psych are the only ones I don't get sick of.  I do agree with leFailFish on Cary on Wayward Son though. Just hearing that song gets me so worked up, even though it's only on one episode per season.
