COOOOOL theme-song!
26 December 2003 | by Renaldo MatlinSee all my reviews

I watched this back on English cable (Sky Channel) here in Norway in the 1980's, and it was one of those shows that taught me English (together with classics like "The Lucy Show", "Three's Company", "Some Mothers Do 'Ave 'Em", "Hogan's Heroes" etc :)

Basically it was a soap-opera based in a US naval base with Dennis 'McCloud' Weaver heading a wonderful cast consisting of TV-stars like Andrew 'Hollywood Wives' Stevens, Susan 'LA Law' Dey, Maud 'Octopussy' Adams, Richard Dean 'McGyver' Anderson, Jill 'Diamonds Are Forever' St. John and even the classy Hollywood-veteran Robert Loggia!

The 1980's was *THE* decade for soap-operas, and titles like "Dynasty", "Dallas" and "Falcon Crest" had people around the world, from every thinkable culture, glued to their seats. "Emerald Point N.A.S." had a hard time trying to get a big break in a field with such steep competition and it was buried after barely one season. But it was a fun show, with that cast, that setting (a lot of uniformed officers and fighter jets!) and last but not least: one of the coolest theme-songs ever for a soap-opera! Almost two decades later I still remember the entire thing! Not surprisingly it was composed by Bill Conti who also did the themes for "Cagney and Lacey", "Falcon Crest" and "North and South", three of my all time favorite TV-themes.

Yes, I know I don't have a life. You don't have to rub it in.
