Xena: Warrior Princess had a great opening. And so does Dexter.

Probably ER, The X Files, Six Feet Under, The Simpsons and Star Trek: Voyager.

Loved their openings.

In no particular order:

Hill Street Blues
Six Feet Under
Blakes 7
Babylon 5, seasons 2-5 especially
Farscape, all seasons
Doctor Who, classic era up to and including T Baker's era (while I like Davison's Doctor I never much cared for the reworked opening theme)
TNG
Voyager
Maude
The Golden Girls
ER
LA Law
Yes, Minister / Yes, Prime Minister
The Rockford Files

There are undoubtedly others but these are the ones I can immediately recall.

Netflix's House of Cards has a great intro but I can't find the theme and visuals in the same yt video for some reason.
