Some of my favorites: The X-Files, The Equalizer (original), The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. (used on the Olympics for a while), Mission: Impossible, Wild Wild West, and Twin Peaks. And of course anything by Mike Post, the king of TV themes.

Don't make me pick one. I made two CDs of my favorites.
