    Greatest American Hero *
    Life & Time Of Grizzly Adams *
    Happy Days

    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.

    Two intros that are classic marriages of music and visuals:

    Hawaii Five-O

    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.
