My Favourite is Cowboy Bebop's intro.With the jazz and the little images that so remind me slightly of the late sixties Cheap Detective shows that my Mother used to watch as a kid.

I'm starting to hate Family Guy's Intro.It was cool for the first 3 shows but now I want to spit on it.

EDIT:Dammit!!,I just realised I have misspelled the Topic title.I'm such a Arse.

I don't like Sister Sister's intro.  It's always annoyed me.

Farscape, Season 3, had the best opening ever.

"If you can hear me (beware), if I make it through (are your ready), if I open the door, Earth is unprepared (helpless) against the nightmares that will follow. Or should I stay (protect my home)... but then you'll never know the wonders I've seen."

Worst, hmmm... I once caught the opening theme of "Baby Looney Tunes". *shudder* Chuck Jones is spinning in his grave.

"Baby Looney Tunes".

*Shudders*
I don't know what that is but it sounds horrible.
I also like the Intro to Outlaw Star.

The DS9 intro was great, so was Voyagers (about the only redeeming quality of that show).

I would have to say I love these anime intros, Evangelion, Excel Saga and Lain (which uses a song from a British group, Boa, that fits perfectly with the show)

Non anime- Simpsons, X-files, and MST3k just for the line
"If you wondering how they eat and breath and other science facts,
just repeat to yourself its just a show and you should really just relax"

I agree that the Family Guy intro isn't that good, although I like the show itself

I liked the British "Whose Line Is It Anyway?" with those people playing the instruments, and the worst TV intro has got be "Friends." I don't even watch the damn show, but when I've seen it, it's crap.

My favorite intro is for the show Outlaw Star. I really don't have one that I hate. I don't watch t.v. that much.

Popular Intro's:Bebop,Outlaw Star

Most Hated:Simpson's and Family guy.

Woah!!.I personally think that if a show has more that 4 season's/Series's should change there intro at No.5

Futurama's into sequence is cool, but since this is a Futurama board, i guess you all knew that.
TV-intro sequences eh? I hated Farscape's but i do like Have I Got News For You's intro, that's a good one.

Even though I disagree with the latter comment, I do concur that Goldsmith did smith some sort of precious metal when he wrote Voyager's theme song.  I also like Law and Order's opening, which, aside from the cast changes, has remained nearly unchanged for the past twelve years.  I really can't stand the openings of Crossing Jordan (I don't like either of them, actually), ER, and Third WatchBoomtown's intro is pretty strange, and I don't quite get the first part.  The effects are cool, but I'm not really sure what their relation is to the show.

Outlaw Star, and Trigun's intro are my favorites. I like how Vash manages to catch the sandwich on his mouth while dodging bullets.

Like The Voices, I'm really getting sick of The Simpsons intro. It goes for what, a minute and a half? I'm glad they shorten it most of the time.

They do shorten it.But only if it's been show for at least 60 times.

They don't shorten it anymore, usually when they did it meant that the writers had come up with something good and therefore by trimming the title sequence, they'd get everything in.

Doesn't happen anymore, funny that.

Favourite: Filthy, Rich and Catflap
Least Favourite: Charmed, Sabrina, and Friends (I'm a fan of Friends, but you do sense that some of the stuff they're doing in the show is just so it will end up in the titles.)

I love the intro to everybody loves Rayman! The one when Rayman's parent's is coming and Rayman has to lock the door. Love that one!

And like Melllvar. I don't like the Sabrina-one.

Raymond.

My mate came up with a create-your-own TV intros, just by tapping your mate on his shoulder.  When he turns around and smiles, that is his "Knots Landing" TV intro face.  Classic!

Good:
"Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale, a tale of a faithful trip . . ."
Hey, any theme song that you can sing hymns to has to be good.

"It's cold outside, a (something) kind of atmosphere . . ."
Man, I would love to have a recording of just the MIDI trumpet part of the Red Dwarf theme at the beginning.

At one point in my life, I had the Duck Tales, Tiny Toons, and Animaniacs themes memorized.

I have the Pinky and the Brain theme on my computer.

I think Star Trek: The Next Generation was the best ever, though.

Bad:
Teral, you may crucify me for this, but I found the DS9 intro boring, up until they added bass lines and other ships.

The Earthworm Jim theme I didn't like.  If you can't even compose your own music, what does that say about the show?

Ugly:
I hate, I HATE, the intro song to Enterprise.  That song is sappier than a pancake covered in syrup.  Why oh why couldn't they just have left the theme as an instrumental?

I also like the Intro to that old BBC History Progam that was made just a couple of years after the War.Whats it called again..?..War of the World..?.But the Intro Music is a geat theme,Haunting and the intro,The Name of the show popping up and then half-transparent Black and white pictures of kids and other people from the II World War.Really dramatic.

I remember thinking: "WTF is this? Christian rock?"
But the instrumental (at the end) is just as bad.

"World At War" - I absolutely agree, great themetune.

I do have to say that Red Dwarf is probably my most favourite  big grin
"It's cold outside, there's no kind of atmosphere, I'm all alone, more or less, let me fly, far away from here, fun, fun, fun, in the sun, sun, sun" Plus the first few notes from the Trumpet as Lister is painting the letters  love . Does anyone remember that the first two series had a different opening song? It was kinda like a slower version of the end/main theme, played by Trumpet with piano backing. Definitely the opposite of the lively jazzed up common one with electric guitar craziness  big grin  smile

That line made me fall in love with the show. Well I guess it was the whole opening, but that line at the end cemented it. I've never felt so much awe while watching anything. I hate to sound like such a nerd, but seeing it was really a life-changing experience for me.

A friend and I did something similar to that on "Hawaiian Day" in high school.  Instead of grass skirts or Hawaiian shirts we wore suits and claimed to be Steve McGarret and Danno.  Every time someone tried to get our attention, we'd hammer the drum intro to "Hawaii Five-O" on our desks and then snap to look at the person and start singing the rest of the song.  Most of the students thought we were boycotting Spirit Week as we usually did, but the teachers understood the joke (even though they got pretty annoyed with us after the first few times).

By the way, the "Hawaii Five-O" intro kicked ass.

I gotta agree with Fishy and Musca.The MST3K Theme tune has always been a classic in my heart.
