^Me too. Rewatched it on DVD recently and it still mostly holds up. Except for the awful 90s power-ballads at the end of some eps.

Best Music + Visual - The Prisoner

Pitch perfect combination of rattling music, striking imagery and bizzare shit. Just like the show.

Oh YES! The Prisoner has one of the most memorable beginnings ever! It's perfect for the series.

I really love the opening for Dexter. It's a great demonstration of how twisted ordinary things can look if you simply choose to see them that way, and how someone like Dexter sees the world all the time.
Dexter would be my choice too. That opening might be the most perfect blend of elements to capture the show of anything I've ever seen. Comedic, disjointed, obscure, symbolic, quirky foreboding & perverse

Re: Great opening sequence

Just had a flash about the 90s sitcom Wings. I remember the opening sequence being a classical piece along with a the plane flying through the clouds. It's been a long time, not sure if there was anything other than that, but I remember it being very zen-like.

Re: Great opening sequence

When I was a little kid, the first few seconds of the Ironside opening gave me the creeps. Seemed pretty heavy compared to other opening credits in the early '70s. Great Quincy Jones theme, too.
