Default TV-Show Sound uh...Show

You guys all know your Adventure Games very well but let's see how well you know your tv-series. Below are the themes from 12 different tv-series from 4 different countries. Ranging from trashy sci fi to quality drama and from extremely well known to incredibly obscure. And to make it somewhat harder I've sometimes chosen a different theme than the main theme or cut it short.

A max of 2 guesses per round

Have fun!

Time to pick some low-hanging fruit:

#4.
Spoiler:
The X-Files main theme


#7.
Spoiler:
From one of my all-time favourite series: Firefly's main theme (without the singing)!

Now let's all sing along:

Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me.

Take me out to the black
Tell 'em I ain't comin' back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me.

There's no place I can be
Since I've found Serenity

And you can't take the sky from me.

Wow this is going a lot faster than I expected! Guess I'll come up with a much longer medley next time.

So far all guesses are correct!

@SweetDalilah: GoT is my favorite show too. I even joined the WiC.net forums

@Timovieman: It's the end credits theme. Doesn't get much more dificult in terms of what theme I used. It is after all the very first medley. Though in terms of obscurity I think you're gonna have a tough time cracking a few themes.

Time for round two! Again you can all have two guesses

(00.00) 01. True Blood(SweetDalilah)
(00.38) 02.
(01.02) 03.
(01.37) 04. The X Files(TimovieMan)
(02.20) 05.
(03.02) 06.
(03.31) 07. Firefly(TimovieMan)
(04.09) 08.
(05.07) 09. Game of Thrones(SweetDalilah)
(05.43) 10. Farscape(Lucien21)
(06.30) 11.
(06.59) 12.

Just listened. The only one I'd have gotten was the Firefly one.

I swear I've heard the last one somewhere before, though.

Oh golly let's hope this thread doesn;t run cold all to sudden. I thought people'd at least be able to guess #2 since that ones fairley well known.

@Fantasysci5: C'mon Fantasy as this forums #1 Anglophile you should be able to guess at least one of the british series included here.

@SweetDalilah: Fringe is correct(as you've allready proven yourself)

#6 is from a long running British hit tv-series.

My favorite GoT character is Tyrion(not very original I know) though I also really like Varys, Jaime's nice too
Spoiler:
(despite the whole throwing kids from towers thing)
oh and Tywin. Tywin's awesome! Though part of that is also because he's played by Charles Dance aka the coolest guy alive. I also started to really like Catelyn as the season progressed and Robb turned out pretty cool as well.

@Hammerite: It's possible you've heard #12 before though rather unlikely since it's one of the most obscure themes. It's from a British tv-series that only ran for one season a considerable while back.

Right, we went through all the American shows. We have one Canadian series left, four British series and one foreign language series.

(00.00) 01. True Blood(SweetDalilah)

I don't really watch series from before the 90s. Well except for I Claudius and Roots. Also the idea is that whoever gets most answers correct compiles the next medley. At this point that seems to be SweetDalilah though the tides may still turn.

We can cross of our Canadian show leaving us with all the Brits and one not in the English language. Boy this is gonna be interesting. Be sure to expect many hints when you need them

Here's a few hints

03. Action/Adventure series. Very badly received and cancelled after one season
05. Foreign Language crime drama series
06. Long running, extremely succesfull award winning espionage series(this should get some bells tinkling)
08. Spinn off/sequal to Britain's most legendary crime drama series
12. Victorian crime drama series, though very succesfull cancelled after one season due to high production costs

No, Tyrion is so awesome . And Jaime is not so bad as one would think actually. Robb is awesome, of course So are you house Lannister or Stark then?

I don't like Varys nor Baelish. They both have their own agendas and interests, and both of them are quite sneaky and great plotters.

I don't quite like Catelyn either, while she tries to protect her own family she makes bad decisions because of her stubbornness.
Spoiler:
Taking Tyrion to the trial to her sister

No 8.

Spoiler:
is the achingly beautiful theme tune to Lewis by Mr Barrington Pheloung.

Mr Pheloung also wrote the beautiful soundtrack to the Broken Sword games.

But sure I'm tied with with SweetDalilah now, since I was the only one who got an obscure one without any hints. Right? Do we all agree on that? Cool!

Sorry for being gone for so long. Had to work, stupid I know

@SweetDalilah: Swedish Wallander is correct! And that actually was one of the more obscure themes. Well done!

As for GoT I'm definitely house Lannister. I like Robb and Catelyn but you can't beat Tyrion and Tywin. And yes Jaime's not that bad, just badass.

Varys is definitely a schemer yes. but I like characters with their own agendas who never step out of the shadows and are secretly plotting everyone's downfall.

Catelyn was rather unlikeable at first, I agree but when she joined Robb I really started to like her. That scene where she comforts him after
Spoiler:
Ned's death
that was amazing imo

Do you also read the books? I'm in A Feast for Crows currently. And I can tell you season 2 is gonna introduce some pretty awesome new characters.

@Intense Degree: Lewis is absolutely right! A spin off/sequel to the England's most famous and possibly best crime drama series: Inspector Morse. Btw: Barrington Pheloung only composed the music for BS1 & 2 right?

@TiAgUh: Sanctuary isn't that obscure (though more obscure than I thought) But I'm willing to give you two point for it which stiil puts you far behind SweetDalilah.

Only two more to go. Both are incredibly obscure though

3. It had a high Indinana Jones level
12. The main characters from the series did actually live at some point. In fact one of them is world famous.
