Nothing was more iconic for my childhood... or early adult years. Or hell, whenever.

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.

Old, but still a personal favorite of mine... all the Babylon 5 intros... but especially S3. "The Babylon Project was our last, best hope for peace. It failed."

So blunt and stark, it really set the tone for that season's entire story arc.

Not quite modern anymore but I liked the original SG-1 opening credits. Mostly for the music but they did a good job showing scenes from the season and updating it as the show went along. Seeing the Stargate spin as they went between the characters was cool too. Then they ruined it by making a CGI version and using a dark blue version of the wormhole travel from Stargate Atlantis.

bill4935: MisatoNERV: 1) the first season of The Wire had an awesome theme song/title sequence.

2) the Barenaked Ladies suck and I hate when they're compared to They Might Be Giants.

Hey! Don't insult the most celebrated Canadian alt-rock band of the mid 90s, you selfish, jaded, ass!

/they've got 2 Billboard awards, how many do you have?

Oh, I don't know... maybe a little something called a Cable Ace Award!

List fails without American Horror Story. The opening credits are actually more unsettling than the show. More coherent too.

likefunbutnot: mcmnky: /would have put GoT #1, but I've never seen True Blood, so I won't argue

Mostly, True Blood's opening does a lot to establish that you will be watching a show that is set in Sisterfarkistan but with vampires and also copious amounts of titties. None of these are bad things but the show itself suffers for the fact that it manages to cram most of the most annoying (but naked) characters humanly possible into a single TV show.

True Blood started suffering when they realized they had fans of particular characters and devolved into a gigantic fanservice handjob. Now every single minor character has to have some idiotic subplot going on or be shoehorned into the main plot even though they don't really serve a purpose there. The storytelling has gotten so bad that, personally, this last season killed any desire whatsoever for me to watch the next season.

Barricaded Gunman: No love for "Frasier"? Some of us just like to get on with the show.

Yeah but the ending makes up for it - Tossed salad and scramled eggs!!!

No love for Psych? It's a fun opening that embraces the "theme song" concept. I particularly like that they record entirely new version of it for some of the theme episodes.
