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 1947  Average listal rating (1217 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 4887  Average listal rating (3284 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 112  Average listal rating (47 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 2971  Average listal rating (1828 ratings) 8.2  IMDB Rating
5. Dexter (2006)


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

People who added this item 1391  Average listal rating (876 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 278  Average listal rating (178 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 258  Average listal rating (130 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 760  Average listal rating (390 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 (166 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 1316  Average listal rating (822 ratings) 7.5  IMDB Rating 8.2 
11. Weeds (2005)


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

People who added this item 150  Average listal rating (96 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 968  Average listal rating (526 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating 8.7 
13. Mad Men (2007)


Simple, yet meaningful.

People who added this item 827  Average listal rating (417 ratings) 8.6  IMDB Rating 9.4 
14. The Wire (2002)


I love the way it changes every season.

People who added this item 1541  Average listal rating (957 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 761  Average listal rating (459 ratings) 7.9  IMDB Rating
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 446  Average listal rating (330 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating 7.7 
17. Little Britain (2003)


Different hilarious text every episode.

People who added this item 1108  Average listal rating (616 ratings) 7.8  IMDB Rating
18. Rome (2005)


Original idea, great music.

People who added this item 1338  Average listal rating (908 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 7.8 
19. Nip/Tuck (2003)


So artificial and septic. Nice song.

People who added this item 191  Average listal rating (121 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating 7.6 
20. Nurse Jackie (2009)


Reminds me a bit of "Nip/Tuck".

People who added this item 122  Average listal rating (72 ratings) 7.1  IMDB Rating
21. The Big C (2010)


So nice. It fits the show perfectly.

People who added this item 614  Average listal rating (323 ratings) 7.6  IMDB Rating 8.7 
22. Carnivàle (2003)


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

People who added this item 2291  Average listal rating (1638 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.
