If you had Ent because of theme you are dumb

Admit it, Walking Dead has a pretty crappy opening credit sequence, the sopranos was just Tony driving home from work, Cosby Show had a new awful dance number every season, and thesea are all wondeful shows.

If you hate Enterprise because of the theme song, you are just a hypster douche who hates for the sake of hating.

I actually liked the theme. Wish the rest of the first two seasons had been done as well as it was.

I didn't care about the theme one way or the other. If it was the worst piece of music ever written and performed, I would gladly have turned down the TV during the opening and then turned it back up to watch the show. Unfortunately, I found that the show was not worth watching.

Re: If you had Ent because of theme you are dumb

My biggest problem with the song is it's recycled from a major motion picture, as if they were too cheap to commission a new theme. And then they were too cheap to use the Rod Stewart version. And I've never liked vocals for a dramatic show's theme, but consider them fine for comedies. I admit to being an old fogey, but I've never been a hipster. The jury's still out on whether I'm a douche.

If the theme had been just that, the theme, it would have been fine. It was those stupid lyrics that ruined it.

I didn't hate the show - just the theme. Thank God I'm not a hypster douche who hates for the sake of hating. I feel good about myself now.

I liked the theme fine. The song they used in the commercials would have been better, though.

My wife and I love that song, but I still feel the one they used has some very appropriate lyrics. I don't really listen to that type of music but it doesn't seem out of place to me.

All I'll say after 20 seconds of that is, for the first time I'm glad I've been deaf in one ear for the last two weeks.

Could have been worse. Could have been James Darren.

"...hypster douche"?



We have other, more polite theme-music hate threads. Thanks for playing anyway.
