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 2047  Average listal rating (1254 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating
2. True Blood (2008)


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

People who added this item 5028  Average listal rating (3359 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating 8.9 
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 117  Average listal rating (49 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating 8.2 
4. Treme (2010)


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

People who added this item 3086  Average listal rating (1876 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating 8.9 
5. Dexter (2006)


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

People who added this item 1494  Average listal rating (935 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 292  Average listal rating (184 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 288  Average listal rating (142 ratings) 7.6  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 829  Average listal rating (422 ratings) 8.3  IMDB Rating 8.7 
9. Boardwalk Empire (2010)


Very elegant and classy - like the show itself.

People who added this item 240  Average listal rating (165 ratings) 7.2  IMDB Rating 8.3 
10. Northern Exposure (1990)


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

People who added this item 1350  Average listal rating (842 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 155  Average listal rating (99 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 7.2 
12. Hung (2009)


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

People who added this item 1021  Average listal rating (549 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating 8.7 
13. Mad Men (2007)


Simple, yet meaningful.

People who added this item 898  Average listal rating (452 ratings) 8.7  IMDB Rating 9.4

I love the way it changes every season.

People who added this item 1609  Average listal rating (986 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 800  Average listal rating (470 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 460  Average listal rating (336 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating
17. Little Britain


Different hilarious text every episode.

People who added this item 1152  Average listal rating (634 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating 8.9 
18. Rome (2005)


Original idea, great music.

People who added this item 1359  Average listal rating (918 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 7.7 
19. Nip/Tuck (2003)


So artificial and septic. Nice song.

People who added this item 202  Average listal rating (124 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating 7.6 
20. Nurse Jackie (2009)


Reminds me a bit of "Nip/Tuck".

People who added this item 132  Average listal rating (73 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating 8.1 
21. The Big C (2010)


So nice. It fits the show perfectly.

People who added this item 643  Average listal rating (329 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 2333  Average listal rating (1650 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating
23. Desperate Housewives


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.
