I love the ballad of Firefly. It sets the tone of the show, blends sci-fi and western, and is catchy as hell.
Agreed, but I find the visuals annoying as heck - way too much cutesy super-shiny names! animation and garish colors. I grayscaled the sequence just for kicks once, and found the resulting subtler visuals a big improvement.

Since nobody's mentioned it yet:

Rome had a spectacular opening. Ancient graffiti come to garish life. Set the tone for the series rather well.
A great concept, yes, but every time I see it I can't help but be irked at how darn dramped the visuals are. I assume that's intentional; to box you in for two minutes at the start so that the actual outside scenes are all the more impressive.
