Your favorite credit sequence?

For an upcoming feature... nominate your favorite TV show credit sequence and theme. One for overall impact that you love. This doesn't include B5. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

This is for nominations only... so if one has been nominated, don't repeat it. Not after a consesus, just nominations. Okay? [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I throw one into the pile...

Farscape season 3+.

Re: Your favorite credit sequence?

ooo good topic! I've got a couple right now:

Boomtown
Enterprise (heh, although I really dont like the show)

I'm sure there were some in previous shows I have watch, but I cant think of any right now. If they come to me, Ill toss them onto the pile.

Doctor Who seasons 18-22 (all basically the same)-
The star scape and the neon logo.

24's intros are also pretty cool - no theme song and it changes from week to week. Short and to the point and keeps the viewer up to date. The use of it for the NFC Championship game was really good, too.

Re: Your favorite credit sequence?

I kinda like CSI's opening. But then I've always liked The Who.

Along those same lines, the original Happy Days opening, when they were still using "Rock Around the Clock", was also good.


And, of course, when I was 4 years old hearing the theme to Mr. Ed was enough send me sprinting through the house to get to the TV. "A horse is a horse, of course, of course ......"

Nothing beats Cowboy Bebop's opening sequence. And its ending for that matter.

"Tank!" just plan rocks.

Re: Your favorite credit sequence?

You are not allowing movie credit sequences, too bad. (I'd mention the Monty Python "moose" sequence if you were. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] )

I think The Original Series of Star Trek has to be mentioned. How many people have heard and perhaps even been moved by "where no man has gone before...". [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Yea, yea, yea, I know it's not politically correct anymore. But we KNOW what was meant. And it's truly a classic opening sequence.

*soprano voice* aaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaa aaaa
aaaa aaaa aaaa

(hmm, I guess the song just doesn't translate well. [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img])
