    Default Favorite television soundtrack?

    For me that would be The Wire with The Sopranos coming in close. But The Wire's music just describes Baltimore to a tee.

    I quite like the theme to Inspector Montalbano - a nice kooky little tango.
    '...a violator of his word, a libertine over head and ears in debt and disgrace, a despiser of domestic ties, the companion of gamblers and demireps, a man who has just closed half a century without a single claim on the gratitude of his country or the respect of posterity...' - Leigh Hunt on the Prince Regent (later George IV).

    I like the theme for the classic western, Have Gun Will Travel. It's sort of like Beethoven's 5th Symphony... duh duh duh DUH.

    You mean full soundtrack (i.e., all the music used) or just the theme song? The Sopranos had a great theme tune and generally good song choices throughout. While I dislike Journey, its final choice of song has become almost iconic.

    I did like the way The Wire used a different version of the same song (Way Down in the Hole) for every season.

    I meant the whole soundtrack for all seasons, not just theme song.

    Theme song: Star Trek: The Next Generation (originally from Star Trek The Motion Picture) by Jerry Goldsmith.
    A piece about hope, wonder and discovery and a bright future for mankind.

    The best version of this theme appears at the end of the movie First Contact:

    Yeah, The Wire used the same song just like Beethoven's Diabelli Variations... here you go:

    For me I have to say both Bones and True Blood. As for bones I can see a majority of people liking the episode The Plain in the Prodigy. Beautiful classical music.

    I've recenrly come to really enjoy the classic Doctor Who soundtracks, especially the remarkable works from the BBC Radiophonic Workshop from the 60s!

    I could argue that the soundtrack to all of the seasons of "The Sopranos" (of which I have seen only the first two seasons) has quite the variety of music ranging from 80's pop like the theme song by Alabama 3 all the way to some obscure rap instrumental by Xzibit to traditional Italian joints.

    It's definitely a wonderful variety to describe all the situations that Tony gets in.

    I have no favourite television soundtrack, but I do have a favourite theme that I would like to share.

    I hope I will be forgiven:
