TV show opening sequences that were way better than the TV show
A snappy, dazzling TV show opening sequence can outlast even a classic TV show in our hearts and minds. Several are iconic in their own right for how greatly they express the feel or tone of a show, from the chummy fountain frolics of Friends to the haunting and stylized prelude of Mad Men to the mechanical game that begins Game of Thrones. But all those examples come from shows so popular and critically acclaimed that they're more or less objectively good. Once in a while, a show has an opening title sequence that knocks it out of the park—to where it's the best part of the entire series.
