What show has the best opening sequence?

I think the opening sequence in the first season of True Detective would be my pick.

I occasionally just go and watch the opening on YouTube because it's so great.

Malcolm in the Middle. From where I am, everybody knows the intro.

Bojack Horseman - Absolutely masterful (as is the closing music)

Dexter... It was just so methodical and consistent. Clinical even. It isn't the best the first, second or even third time you watch it, but the fortieth? It grows on you.

The Wire.

They use the same song but each season uses a different artist's version. It also suits the series beautifully.

BoJack Horseman, without a doubt.

The only Intro I don’t skip

u/BMoney8600 Male Oct 07 '22

I’ve watched through the whole show many times. I’m in the middle of rewatching it again.

u/MH3ndr1ks Oct 07 '22

I'm going with Rubicon. The music is my alarm sound ever since it aired and the visuals match the show perfect and instantly show you the vibe of the show.

2

u/SawinBunda Oct 07 '22

No joke, I was about to write exactly the same comment. About the visuals and how it sets the vibe perfectly.

Still heartbroken about the early axing of that show.

u/MH3ndr1ks Oct 07 '22

Same, I have it on my hard drives somewhere for a rewatch.

That opening is #2 on my list. It's what got me into miniature painting at 24.

And #1?

GARGOYLES!!!!!

The epic level of awesome of the main track. The way it lines up with Goliath slamming his claws into the concrete wall while climbing it giving you a sense of just how powerful that dude is.

I'm pretty sure my balls dropped when I was 5 years old because that whole sequence just unlocked the testosterone production in my 5 year old body...

My two favorites are probably Cowboy Bebop and Super Crooks, but I must admit that's as much about the music as anything.

This podcast about composing the Game of Thrones theme tune is pretty interesting.

It took a while to grow on me because it was a shocking departure from previous series, but I'd have to nominate Star Trek: Enterprise.
