Just For Openers...

The thing that clinches any TV show for me is the opening credits, particularly the music. When I was just a little boy, I used to stand in front of a three way mirror so I could pretend I was a member of the cast of my all time favorite show.

I don't particularly care for the openers of any of the shows that are on today. I want something rousing and epic-like.

I should also note that I am envious of anyone who can keep up with the good stuff that's on today, especially on premium cable, which I no longer have. I miss Entourage. Thatnk God Huff was cancelled, or I'd be missing that too. I still catch the watered down Sopranos on USA or TNT or whatever it is. I also force myself to be very selective with what I keep watching because if I didn't I'd never leave the boob tube except to blog.

I'm totally a sucker for a good opening title credits song. "Boston Legal" has a good one, and they sometimes play with it by having a character say "cue the music." Last season, a character went on about how he had this little tune in his head, and then he started humming--well, making guitar sounds with his mouth in some fashion--to the tune of the opening credits, which kicked in a little bit later. And they kept cutting back to the dude belting out the tune with just his mouth during the credits. Classic.

Dallas definitely comes to mind.
Also, the Dukes of Hazzard, the Brady Bunch, the Love Boat and the
Facts of Life. Call me stuck in the 80's.
