Ooh, I've just remembered one from my childhood:

Jamie And The Magic Torch



Great music and psychedelic illustrations. Top stuff.

Top Gear's great, but the theme isn't the best. Get's old after a while, and I hate the "TONIGHT...the FASTEST CAR...................................................................IN THE WORLD intro every time :)

I like the credits for "The United States Of Tara" alot too.
(For people unfamiliar with it, it's a show about a Mom with D.I.D., or Multiple personalities.)

You owe the companies nothing. Less than nothing, you especially don't
owe them any courtesy. They owe you. They have re-arranged the world to
put themselves in front of you. They never asked for your permission,

I agree with Isabelle about True Blood credits being brilliant but I hate the maggotty fox. :thumbsdown:

My favourite of all time though is OZ (I know, you are taken aback with surprise):

I'm not allowed to embed it because it's too good violent and nudey
And I'm not ashamed to say i've learnt the handshake at 0:51. Actually I am a bit ashamed of that. :|

There's some pretty cool fake lost credits on youtube as well. :thumbup:

My favorites are True Blood and Weeds (S1-3). There are plenty of other great opening themes, but these two are my favorite. For example, the True Blood theme song is my ringtone. I love it! :thumbup:

The "Treme" opening is brilliant. Puts you right in the mood and the world of the show.

The first ones that come to my mind are Dexter's and The Simpsons. I also like Weeds "little boxes" that presented different covers each episode.

The Simpsons


Weeds

You guys most have posted every single theme, except one of my personal favourites :

Band of Brothers, sure it's a mini series, but still, love the music! :D



But I prefer not to have a theme at all, like LOST or 24, just put me right into the action. :w00t:
