Now this is another Brit classic.  Recognise the first two cast members anyone?

I've always liked the opening for the show-within-a-show Eye on Springfield.

Which, of course, looks suspiciously like the Miami Vice opening.

I always hated Miami Vice, but it does have a classic opening.

I must give special mention to Mike Post and his vast canon of classic themes. Consider:

Quantum Leap
NYPD Blue
LA Law
Hill Street Blues
The A-Team
Muder One.

... and the legendary Rockford Files, the theme to which I do believe actually charted.

Am I the only one who always loathed that opening? That was the point at which that show disappeared up its own arse for me; I might still catch myself watching for a few minutes thanks to my ridiculous girlish crush on Diedrich Bader. tongue.gif But the previous opening set to The Vogues' Five O' Clock World was so much better.

And Jim Rockford has the same phone number as the Ghostbusters!


Now this is a strange Brit sequence...no cast or credits, just the title. Kind of

Personally, I always had a liking for Taxi - just how many times did that car cross that bridge? - and then of course there's Cheers.

Shows I remember from when I was a kid, that haven't already been mentioned (thanks Sostie, I was whistling Tales of the Golden Monkey all morning!), would have to include Blake's 7 and the original Battlestar Galactica, that I can't find a clip for!

One that sticks in my mind from when I was really young, because my older sister used to watch it avidly, is Black Beauty, and another animal from when I was older, The Littlest Hobo - God I hated that program!

Oh, and let's not forget the one and only: Danger Mouse!

Did The Incredible Hulk's famous sad-music-whilst-Banner-tries-to-get-a-ride sequence appear over the closing credits of that show?

If so, that's surely the saddest ever.

There was an article I read a while back about beginning sequences which said the same thing. I wish I could find it again since there were some real gems on there.

Of the recent title sequences I've seen I'm rather partial to The Wire and even though it changes for each season they all manage to encapsulate the essence of the show in their combination of images and music to great effect.

Deadwood also made an effort with their credits, as did Carnivale.

As a metaphor, one of the saddest things ever.

Yarp. Boobies and blood. Welcome to the 21st century of title sequences. laugh.gif




(I'm kidding, they are gorgeous titles and capture the spirit of the show wonderfully. But I am celebrating boobies and blood...)

There's no rule saying that boobies, blood and great aesthetic design can't be combined. Much of the Renaissance seemed to be based on the idea that some or all of these things were inseparable.
