* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The main theme not only sounds, well, ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Awesome]]'', but it also sums the show up about as perfectly as any lyricless tune possibly could. The subdued electronic intro is accompanied by scenes of someone fiddling with gizmos and sciency stuff, segueing in to a shot of a bomb timer counting down as the volume rises, before the show title literally explodes on to the screen and the main theme begins to accompany a montage of thrilling action shots. Wow! Makes [[JamesBond James Bond]] Walking along before turning to shoot someone seem pretty damn lame by comparison.
