What T.V. show’s intro is impossible to skip?

  1. I skip the Sopranos now but only because I've watched the whole series like 10 times and started wondering how much of my life I've spent just watching the same clips of New Jersey set to the same song.

  2. Another Yoko Kanno banger opening is the first season of Ghost in the Shell: Standalone Complex (Inner Universe, rip Origa).

  3. I really hope they bring something similar for the new one. It doesn't need to be a shot for shot recreation, just a solid callback.

  4. Yes and I associate it with Tales from the Crypt from late night Fox in the 90s, which also had an amazing intro.

  5. I'll never understand why they don't make more shows like xfiles. It was such a massive hit but there have only been a handful of genuine attempts to mimic it.

  6. Must be specific, because there are different intros according to country and syndication. The best is the original US airing intro, which is the song "Teardrop" by Massive Attack. It's off their album Mezzanine, which is consistently one of the most replied answers when people ask what the best album with no skips is on Reddit.

  7. Have to turn off "auto next episode" as well so that the end credits/song don't get cut short! Every episode sits between book ends of great music.

  8. Skipping Futurama's intro is like intentionally stubbing your big toe on the coffee table. Why would you do that to yourself?

  9. All of Watanabe’s shows I’ve seen have had absolute bangers for theme songs, I feel like you got to include Cowboy Bebop as well.

  10. The backwards x-ray during the intro to Scrubs (and then having it corrected later) was such a cute running gag! I can’t listen to the intro music without smiling, either. One of my favorite shows ever.

  11. Tonight! James throws a bender at his tavern. Hammond shows how structurally unstable the bridge of London is by blowing it up with a single stick of dynamite, and I crash into the wall at the Abu Dhabi F1 Grand Prix.

  12. I told Pierce a thousand times, I never wanted to meet LeVar in person! I just wanted a picture. You can't disappoint a picture!

  13. I also thought of Buffy immediately!! I also loved the intro music for Angel, those strings in the beginning are haunting.

  14. I love everything about that show except that it ended. The books are great as well. Written by the apprentices of George RR Martin.

  15. The way the backgrounds progress is so simple yet sets the tone for the seasons so well. I get chills every single time I see the last season's :')

  16. If I remember correctly, the drummer for The Black Keys wrote the intro for Bojack, with his uncle's help. It really shows whenever I listen to the band's music, too

  17. Had to scroll wayyyy to far to find this. The theme song is so tranquil - a perfect calm before the storm. Unskipable.

  18. They reused couch gags a lot in earlier seasons. The chorus line one with the dancing elephants in the background was used in 8 different episodes.

  19. Prefect length, perfect tune, perfect visuals. Simple and effective. First show that came to my mind and I havent seen it in 10+ years!

  20. King of the Hill went from being just another show to one of my favorites. I feel like it’s a perfect example of a show that gets better the older you get, while also maintaining that childlike innocence. The theme song absolutely slaps, too!

  21. When my kids were younger, they loved to watch Pysch. They always showed the flashback, then switched to "present day." My youngest admitted years later that he could never figure out why everything always happened on the same day in the flashbacks--he thought it said "President's Day," and wondered why everything only happened then. Gave us a good laugh!

  22. ”Amazing thing about snakes is that they reproduce spontaneously. They have both male and female sex organs. That’s why somebody you don’t trust you call a snake. How can you trust a guy who can literally go fuck themselves? Hey, snakes were fucking themselves long before Adam and Eve showed up, T.”

  23. Yes! I wasn’t expecting Daredevil to be mentioned, but I’m glad it was. Not only is the score absolutely brilliant, the visuals are a thing a beauty (ironic considering it’s a show about a blind man)

  24. I love the episode in season 2 (maybe 3) after they introduce that theme where Sarah Silverman is complaining about the theme song of her favorite (fictional) tv shows being changed. She even make monk promise to never change the theme song should he be given a show. The whole episode is great, and her character is actually funny.

  25. Not only is the song great as the opening theme, but they do such a good job of using it throughout the show. Different tempos. Different instruments. Just amazing.

  26. I heard this play on TV in the background once but forgot to figure out what show it was. I'll need to give the series a try based on the intro alone.

  27. I would always try to remember the line that was quoted in the intro and find it in the episode for The Wire

  28. Every time I started a new episode I said I was going to skip it, and each time I would get enthralled by it and couldn't.

  29. The community theme song is so damn catchy, seriously it's the only show where I've never skipped the intro and never get tired of hearing. Who cares if it has a dark meaning, I already have suicidal tendencies so it balances it out right?

  30. The GOT intro always really helped me know what was going on actually. Put places and character movement into perspective!

  31. I was about to post that comment because I couldn’t find this show. Something about dark synth music gives me nostalgia. They did a wonderful job.

  32. In 1972 a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Los Angeles underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as soldiers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team.

  33. I watch a ton of shows, so I can name a few. But Mad Men is a no-brainer. I also really love Mrs. America's opening, if you haven't seen it or don't feel pumped about the subject, just go check it out on YouTube.
