AllMusic Review by

Following in footsteps of TVT's TeeVee Tunes compilations, Sci-Fi has compiled four albums of themes and suites from a broad assortment of TV shows and movies, going to the original sources for the tracks. This makes the quality fairly variable, though some good work has been done with noise reduction on the more questionable entries. Also variable is the actual length of individual tracks -- many feature just the main title, but several (such as the "RoboCop" and "The Road Warrior" entries) go on into lengthy chunks of the underscore as well. Overall, this is a cute collection, with some great moments: It's nice to have a good copy of the animated "X-Men" theme, and a hoot to have "The Six Million Dollar Man" complete main title, with voiceover and effects. A lot of these themes have been collected elsewhere in re-recorded form; these are, warts and all, the originals.
