    I don't know how Perry Mason or Hawaii 5-0 or The Outer Limits or the George Reeves Superman or Fringe have been overlooked.

    PS Or Lost in Space.

    Best Music - Millennuim
    Best Visual - Game of Thrones
    Best Music + Visual - The Prisoner

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

    I think that's one reason I didn't get into the Muppet Show that much. I'd see the ITC logo and get excited that Space: 1999 was coming on, then I'd get disappointed that it was only the Muppet Show.

    ^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.

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

    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

    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.

    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.

    It's a goddamn disgrace that the most awesome theme of all hasn't even been mentioned:

    I'm a pretty big fan of "The Newsroom"'s opening.
