    *yawn* Favorite Opening Credits in TV.

    Ah the opening, the jingle, the credits, thing that gives the viewer a taste of what is to come for the rest of the episode. What are some of your favorite television openings?

    *deep breath* I like Game of Thrones, Mad Men, Buffy, Fringe, American Horror Story, The Americans, Bojack Horseman, Jessica Jones, True Detective season 1, Dexter, The Simpsons, Cowboy Bebop, and probably many others. I'll just stop.

    The Stranger Things intro was great. The music especially.

    I could list off thousands, so I'll limit myself to two live-action and two anime for now. It's tough to find a better opening sequence than Westworld (NSFW warning: brief shadowy robot sex):

    The Expanse has a really on-point intro as well, when they actually bother to play it in full:

    As for anime, Danganronpa 3's Despair Side OP is perfection (though it contains massive spoilers for the first two Danganronpa games):

    And ERASED, regardless of its many flaws, has a pretty kickass opening:

    The Firefly song was also amazing.

    Twin Peaks, the opening score by Angelo Badalamenti really sets the tone for the entire show... Stranger Things is a soundtrack i wish i could find a physical copy of...

    Any thread on favourite openings that doesn't include Battlestar Galactica is incomplete.

    True detective was smurfing great. I really enjoyed Westworlds too. I think Game of thrones is Iconic. Black Sails is growing on me, Bear McCreary's Hurdy Gurdy is amusing. I like the BSG SONG but not the scenes of the intro, but again, thanks Bear McCreary.

    I second the Mario Bros. Super Show lol!

    I also really like Wolf's Rain's, Virtua Fighter (anime) and the Batman cartoon from the early 90s.

    Can't go wrong with most of Wolf's choices.

    GoT is really the best. Epic theme song, cool animated map, and the credits constantly change with the locations and cast featured in the episode.

    Yes. No. Maybe. I don't know. Could you repeat the question? You're not the boss of me now. You're not the boss of me now. You're not the boss of me now, and you're not so big. Life is unfair...


    Also, I really like the opening for The Office.

    I'll have to think for cartoons and anime as those are kind of separate in my head and it's hard for me to narrow those down.
