the music element of the 30 Rock title sequence is pretty delightful.

JeffMD: This makes me sad... you guys have no idea how deprived you are.

Resident anime nut here, it pains me when people talk about how so many american shows are so great.. sorry.. american TV sucks balls. Reuse the same intros for the entire damn series, and use sound tracks which are a mix of licensed tracks and really poor custom compositions by a third rate music producer. So...BAD.

Anyways.. as far as top tv intros I have seen.. the ghost in the shell series def has top marks but #1 would probably goto Last Exile. Gonzo's production values on this series is just phenomenal.

Not modern but still has one of the best openings ever.

I also agree with Doctor Who. Why is that not on the list.

Also not modern and take it how you choose your favorite of these, but the Star Trek series tend to have really well done openings.

The best thing about Star Trek: Voyager was the title sequence.

Kangaroo_Ralph: Alien Nation


A title sequence that just shows clips from random episodes? How does that qualify as great?

Doctor Who, The Prisoner and many others that have been complained about are on their All Time TV intros list from 2007 3 Pages for 10 shows.

This is only for shows since that list was published.

I see Doctor Who on there. But still missing Star Trek and Twilight zone on that list. But then again, I love those series since I was a kid (Grew up watching reruns of the original series (Star Trek and Twilight Zone) and new episodes of Next Generations and so on).

List fails without Doctor Who.


The list doesn't fail without Doctor Who.

As much of a Whovian as I am, the title sequence isn't all that. It's an iconic theme song for sure, but the title sequence is really bland and basic, no matter which era it's from.

Yeah, I'm going to have to insult you on this one. The notion that "Americans are missing out" and that we have "really bad TV" compared to - wait for it - JAPAN is laughable at best. The BBC and Australian TV have better lead-ins than 90% of the formulaic anime opens that clutter the genre.

There are entire web forums dedicated to calling out and mocking people like yourself for comments like this. There's a reason. I could barely sit through whatever it was that you linked. I tried, I really tried, but it followed the exact same formula that every other anime opener followed. And it was trite.

GitS:SAC and Cowboy Bebop are about as close as I'll get to listing any anime opening sequences with the likes of openers like the ones listed here.

Here's what you're looking for: Every anime opening ever made

I love anime, but I'll admit that most openings are pretty redundant.
