1. Six Feet Under (2001)


I love the music, the cinematography and the whole concept of showing the way from death to a cementary.

People who added this item 1985  Average listal rating (1235 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating 8.1 
2. True Blood (2008)


An exciting mix of death, sex and religion. Great editing and perfect song.

People who added this item 4942  Average listal rating (3319 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating
3. The Simpsons (1989)


Different every episode. So many different gags in every opening (the blackboard, the couch, now the billboard and more). A true classic.

People who added this item 115  Average listal rating (46 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating 8.1 
4. Treme (2010)


Wonderful song and pictures. Very "artsy". Changes slightly every season.

People who added this item 3016  Average listal rating (1852 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating
5. Dexter (2006)


Morning routine - ordinary, but disturbingly violent and aggresive. Like Dexter himself.

People who added this item 1425  Average listal rating (900 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating
6. Twin Peaks (1990)


A beautiful classic. Amazing music theme and cinematography. So original and different.

People who added this item 283  Average listal rating (183 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 7.9 
7. United States of Tara (2009)


Can you believe it's really all cut out of paper? I like the whole idea and the song.

People who added this item 264  Average listal rating (132 ratings) 7.7  IMDB Rating
8. The Borgias (2011)


Pure art (literally!). I love to spot the works of art in it. All dangerous, violent and sexy. Plus a great music theme.

People who added this item 782  Average listal rating (399 ratings) 8.3  IMDB Rating 8.7 
9. Boardwalk Empire (2010)


Very elegant and classy - like the show itself.

People who added this item 236  Average listal rating (165 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating 8.2 
10. Northern Exposure (1990)


Don't you just love the moose? And the music!

People who added this item 1331  Average listal rating (830 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 8.1 
11. Weeds (2005)


Different every season - I like them all, also the short ones (very imaginative).

People who added this item 151  Average listal rating (97 ratings) 6.5  IMDB Rating 7.2 
12. Hung (2009)


Sexy and masculine. Not only the man, but also the city.

People who added this item 991  Average listal rating (540 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating 8.7 
13. Mad Men (2007)


Simple, yet meaningful.

People who added this item 861  Average listal rating (435 ratings) 8.7  IMDB Rating 9.4 
14. The Wire (2002)


I love the way it changes every season.

People who added this item 1566  Average listal rating (968 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating 9.3 
15. The Sopranos (1999)


Also very simple, but original. And the song wakes me up every morning. ;)

People who added this item 772  Average listal rating (463 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating 8.9 
16. Oz (1997)


Changes a bit every season, but always very disturbing. Probably the only opening sequence for adults only!

People who added this item 451  Average listal rating (334 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating 7.7 
17. Little Britain (2003)


Different hilarious text every episode.

People who added this item 1128  Average listal rating (626 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
18. Rome (2005)


Original idea, great music.

People who added this item 1350  Average listal rating (914 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 7.8 
19. Nip/Tuck (2003)


So artificial and septic. Nice song.

People who added this item 196  Average listal rating (122 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating 7.6 
20. Nurse Jackie (2009)


Reminds me a bit of "Nip/Tuck".

People who added this item 124  Average listal rating (71 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating
21. The Big C (2010)


So nice. It fits the show perfectly.

People who added this item 627  Average listal rating (324 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating 8.6 
22. Carnivàle (2003)


Mysterious and even a bit scary. Reminds me the opening credits of Rome and Deadwood.

People who added this item 2308  Average listal rating (1646 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 7.4 
23. Desperate Housewives (2004)


A little postmodern history of art (see also "The Borgias").


 

Tough choice!

Some nice choices on here, and some I'm not as familiar with. Definitely agree with your number one choice though.
