Buzz In: What Are Your Favorite TV Opening Sequences?


If you're anything like me, the opening theme music and credit sequences to your favorite TV shows will sometimes cause me to have goosebumps. It sounds silly, but think about it. At this point, my nostalgic longing for My So-Called Life nearly brings me to tears when I hear those first notes of music as well as the hushed "Go, now! Go!" And there was a time when the opening credits sequence for ER functioned as a kind of call to action for my emotions — before anything actually happened on the show itself!

I have friends who swoon at the opening sequence for Gilmore Girls ("If you're out on the road/ Feeling lonely, and so cold. . ."), and of course the jazzy opening music for Sex and the City is like a good feelings trigger for many women (I once heard that theme music as someone's ring tone on a bus, and all the women on the bus started laughing — happily). I'll also always have a soft spot for the Ally McBeal opening sequence ("I've been searchin' my soul tonight!") as well as the one from The West Wing.

Now it's your turn. Which TV openings make you happy/wistful/tingly?
