You're welcome. :D
The first season of Damages was brillant. It's like a big puzzle and you get to see the whole picture at the end of each season. Season 2 was a bit of a let-down though, but if you know the end you see that overall it was really great.

This one. The song rocks and goes pretty well with the imagery collection. :thumbsup: When I re-watch the show with my best friend, she always wants to skip it and I want to leave it playing. I can't help but sing along every single time. :P

My favourite intros are pretty old:







Who would have thought Smokey was born during Bewitched times. :P



I love the song. :thumbsup:

"It's... Arrested development." :lol:

Yes! Aww, I really miss that show.

I usually prefer short opening sequences, but probably my favourite one is The Sopranos. It sets the mood for the show so perfectly.

Agree with Dexter (altho too long when watching eps in succession), Scrubs + Psych. Love the songs on those two.

True Blood is my favorite. The music is great along with awesome visuals. Same for Damages....awesome visuals, and awesome music.

The Twilight Zone's intro is awesome and unforgettable.

Dexter feels a lot longer than it actually is which is why I skipped over it for every episode but the first when I was catching up, but it's a nicely done intro.

I usually don't like the intros that show the name of the actor and then the character flipping their hair or something which is usually what they do with sitcoms (it's just too cheesy for my liking). Or intros that really show the actors much at all, with the exception being Chuck, which I like for some reason. I just like intros that sort of speak for themselves and have great visuals without

And I've always noticed that HBO/Showtime shows have the best openers.
