I do like them both. The saxophone part of the classic theme is the best. Though, I enjoy listening to the more upbeat fifth season theme more. I feel it is more dramatic, and maybe, it was time to shake up the main theme for the show by then. Season five was already a real distinct change in creative direction with Sam affecting the live of real historical figures, and the entire 'evil leaper' arc. They were also doing more back at PQL & The Waiting Room with Al. Seemed they broadened the shows spectrum of storytelling, and so, the new theme seemed appropriate with this new evolution. Felt like time to step up the game, and really go for broke. Also, I don't get the same feeling watching those episodes as the syndicated versions with the season four theme & opening titles. Most season five episodes felt different than episodes from any previous season. So, a new theme felt right.
