    Default Best TV show intro?

    What TV show do you think has the best intro? I'm watching Good Omens right now and I absolutely love the intro, but I'm also partial to the Breaking Bad intro. Share your favorite intros here. Or else.

    One thing is for certain: the more profoundly baffled you have been in your life, the more open your mind becomes to new ideas.
    -Neil deGrasse Tyson

    Let's think the unthinkable, let's do the undoable. Let us prepare to grapple with the ineffable itself, and see if we may not eff it after all.

    The opening music is just so good. If I get a feeling to repeat the intro a few times, it must count something.

    Why does it have to be a TV show?

    Ahh yes, Bojack is amazing I had totally forgotten about that one. I love the song in the intro, but the entire series had awesome music.

    Best part about the Futurama intro is the text at the bottom that changes between episodes, always a good joke there.

    My daughter has me wasting time with Person of Interest. I rather like how the Intro keeps changing over the episodes notably as it changes from a one and done update of the old Equalizer (or sometimes A team) to a sci fi show. Its clever that a show gets me to actually not skip the intro all the time.

    I think that's the sign of having a great intro, when the audience doesn't feel the "oh god, here comes the intro better skip it" urge whenever it comes on.

    I don't think it even needs to be great really. I kinda rethought my almost drone like habit of skipping since I watch online nowadays. The same people who put effort into the show put effort into the intro and it can be clever the odd bits thay toss in particularly if a show has an arc or changes.

    I think there's a difference though between a show like West Wing where the intro only changes like twice throughout the entire 8 or so seasons of the show and something like Big Mouth or American Dad which regularly add visual gags to their opening intro scene.

    I forgot how good the Westworld and Hannibal intros are. If only the rest of Westworld was as good as the intro was .
