Can you think of any others?
The Babylon 5 opening credits for season 5. All of their openings are good, but each one builds upon the one that went before. The last season obviously is the most complete.
And of course Game of Thrones. (I won’t link here because someone else probably will. They’ll have their preference on which one too.)
The majestic intro music for “The West Wing”.
(My previous post deleted) I decided to post the closing as well as the opening (and a better quality video):
The best Batman movie of all time was the intro to the 90s animated series.
I know this isn’t a tv series intro but i have to post after you brought up batman!
Both the 89 movie and the animated series were scored by Danny Elfman, and the animated series intro music is based on this one.
“Space. The final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its 5 year mission: To explore strange new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no man has gone before!”
Number Six: Where am I?
Number Two: In the Village.
Number Six: What do you want?
Number Two: Information.
Number Six: Whose side are you on?
Number Two: That would be telling. We want information… information… information.
Number Six: You won’t get it.
Number Two: By hook or by crook, we will.
Number Six: Who are you?
Number Two: The new Number Two.
Number Six: Who is Number One?
Number Two: You are Number Six.
Number Six: I am not a number! I am a free man!
Number Two: [laughs]
I always like the opening and closing credits of Bob’s Burgers
So many classics of the '60’s had impressive opening credits – Green Acres, Petticoat Junction, The Addams Family, The Munsters… But one of my favorite stories of the era is Gilligan’s Island, which had great credits, but did not give billing to Russell Johnson nor Dawn Wells in the first season ("…And the rest!") – The story goes that the producers did not acquiesce to include them until Bob Denver countered “Well, if you’re not going to credit them, take my name out too.” Suddenly they found room for The Professor and Mary Ann.
How about The Flintstones? Both the opening and closing credits. When I was a young child, I often worried about Fred getting locked out of the house – every time!
I don’t know how popular this show was to american viewers, but this is a memorable intro for me.
