I have a widescreen TV, so I use a widescreen theme.  Back when I has
a 4:3 TV, I liked Titivillus the best.

I currently use a modified version of Justin Hornsby's ProjectGrayhem
theme.  I like it because it make very efficient use of screen real
estate.  I did have to modify it's font colors for my personal taste.

I have looked at Jusin's blootube and may switch to it, but once again
I would have to modify the font colors.

Personally, I like Warning = Yellow.  Recording = Red, Good = Green.
For some reason, I just cannot get used to Good = Yellow.

I have also tried MePo-wide.  While it is a very attractive theme
(probably even more attractive than Justin's), it just wastes far too
much screen area to graphics, instead of information.
