Best and Worst TV Intros
I tried getting into Weeds a few months ago on Netflix but couldn't get past the first season. It just didn't feel myself getting into it, and after doing a little bit more research I decided it probably wasn't for me. Well my girlfriend just finished watching The Office and has now apparently moved on to Weeds. Watching it this afternoon, I was reminded just how terrible the theme song is, and that the intro video that goes along with it is also pretty pretentious. I'm no music specialist, but those lyrics just make me cringe.
There's only one other intro/song I can think of that I really dislike:
I actually enjoy Entourage quite a bit, but the opening song and video are just terrible to me.
And just to get those two songs out of my head, here are two that I really enjoy and don't mind watching once in a while:
Mad Men isn't my absolute favorite show, but I'm trying to stay current with it. I really enjoy the art style used in the intro, and the foreboding music fits perfectly with the tone of the show. As for The Sopranos, I love that show and also love the opening credits. Kind of ironic considering how similar the opening is to the Entourage opening, but the song and imagery of a gritty New Jersey fit great with the show.
So, are there any specific theme songs or openings that you guys love or hate? I'm sure there's a lot more good ones I'm missing or just haven't seen...
