AllMusic Review by

TV Hits of the '80s collects 15 of the decade's most memorable theme songs, including "Miami Vice," "The Greatest American Hero," "Magnum P.I.," and "L.A. Law." Unfortunately, these aren't the original versions of the songs -- they're renditions performed by the Electronic Symphony Orchestra. While the performances here are far from bad, they're also a far cry from the originals, which is bound to be disappointing to most people interested enough in '80s TV music to buy a collection like this. Fans of TV themes should avoid TV Hits of the '80s and make sure the collection they're thinking of getting features original recordings.
