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 2002  Average listal rating (1244 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 4957  Average listal rating (3332 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) 7.6  IMDB Rating 8.2 
4. Treme (2010)


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

People who added this item 3027  Average listal rating (1858 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating
5. Dexter (2006)


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

People who added this item 1447  Average listal rating (920 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 289  Average listal rating (185 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 271  Average listal rating (139 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 794  Average listal rating (409 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 (164 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 1336  Average listal rating (833 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 1000  Average listal rating (545 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating 8.7 
13. Mad Men (2007)


Simple, yet meaningful.

People who added this item 876  Average listal rating (445 ratings) 8.7  IMDB Rating 9.4 
14. The Wire (2002)


I love the way it changes every season.

People who added this item 1576  Average listal rating (971 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 776  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 455  Average listal rating (336 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating 7.7 
17. Little Britain (2003)


Different hilarious text every episode.

People who added this item 1134  Average listal rating (626 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
18. Rome (2005)


Original idea, great music.

People who added this item 1354  Average listal rating (917 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 7.8 
19. Nip/Tuck (2003)


So artificial and septic. Nice song.

People who added this item 199  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 130  Average listal rating (72 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating 8.1 
21. The Big C (2010)


So nice. It fits the show perfectly.

People who added this item 629  Average listal rating (325 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 2314  Average listal rating (1648 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 7.5 
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.
