Default Favorite TV series music score?
Of all the TV shows you've watched over time what is your favorite score? It can be anything from the opening theme song, to the entire series all together.

I have to say my favorite score has to be the score done by Bear McCreary for the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica series. Every CD from season 1's music to Season 4 is filled with amazing music.

My favorite tracks from the series are:
  • Lords of Kobol
  • Storming New Caprica
  • Prelude to War
  • Black Market
If you have a NICE sub I suggest "Storming New Caprica" to give it a work out. All 4 seasons of the series are heavy on the drums, especially Japanese Taiko drums.

Hammer on the nail, friend! Probably a tie between Sean Callery's excellent 24 series soundtrack and Bear McCreary's Battlestar Galactica, which I listen to daily. Great driving music!

Also, love the opening theme for Game of Thrones, but haven't listened to it's soundtrack yet.

Dr. Who has quite an amazing soundtrack. Fun fact: performed by the National Orchestra of Wales.

LOST has the best score ever in a television series. Nothing else even comes close in my opinion.

I do, however, love the opening themes for these shows:

Six Feet Under
True Blood
Dexter

Three shows spring to mind,
Scrubs,
Californication,
and How I met your mother.
Each has certain scenes where the chosen music works just perfectly, not exactly "scores" but hey...

I'm not just throwing in a few favourite television shows here.

My submission would be The Sopranos.

The way the music is used throughout the series from episode to episode is incredible.

Sometimes a single song sums up the whole scene and at other time you're surprised at how well a song comes in at the exact appropriate time.

From the songs which Tony plays for himself to the pulsating and hard dance music that is always played at the bing.

Chalk full of awesome sauce.

I also loved Justice League Seasons 1-4, Season 5 was crap and full of gimmicks. Seasons 1-4 were filled with some surprisingly mature political episodes that probably went right over most kids heads.

Seasons 1,2 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-683_Z6xRYo

Seasons 3-5 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sa2jYn3LmlE

And its loosley related to the Batman Beyond animated show, they released a direct to TV movie and had Kenny Wayne Shepherd do an intro/ending for the movie. Simply awesome guitar piece. If you like KWS or Joe Satriani..etc you'll probably like it.

I can tell you're a man of good taste already when it comes to film/tv scores by your signature and avatar, the soundtrack for The Fountain is one of my all time favorites.

I very much agree, the music written for this show works perfectly with it and greatly amplifies the emotion of many scenes. I know many people get at it for being a flawed show and even though I like it a lot I partially agree, but the music plays a large part in making a lot of the episodes brilliant.

Other than that, the music in Breaking Bad is generally excellent. It does have its own original score, but the general use of non-score music tracks in the show is brilliant. Without any spoilers, if anyone saw the finalé of Season 4, this song perfectly fit the moment it was put to:
