I’ve recently realized that I really enjoy a couple TV intros. I like ones that don’t take a long time, or pull me out of the mood of watching the show… And more to the point, I love intros that really embody the show.
For example when I see these I just want to run out and buy all of the DVDs and watch them all in a row.
I can’t decide which I like more, so I’m going to pull a big time cop out and say each of these are my #1 favorite intro’s for a Drama and a Comedy.
And the winners are…
Best intro for a Comedy:
I just love how snappy and catchy the song is, and the images that coorespond… visually by the end of the intro I’m thinking… “sweet!… where’s the show??” If you haven’t seen this show and you like this intro strongly consider viewing some of the episodes. The intro says it all.
Best intro for a Drama:
This intro also just embodies the show. I never know what to expect when I begin watching a Mad Men episode, and when I see this at the beginning of the show I remember that all of the guessing and speculating I’ve done about what might be happening with the show’s rich and complex characters… I’m probably going to be wrong, so just sit back and take it all in. Stylistically creative and original as well.
What are your favorites? What do you like in a TV intro?
