Anime always has awesome openings that you never want to skip past. Some of my faves being Monster, Nana, Death Note and Lucky Star.

Also, Twin Peaks! The music still gives me the creeps.

I totally agree with Dexter - I think that is one of the best title sequences of recent television drama, and you can tell because when I watch Dexter, I don't fast forward through it. However, you've missed Thunderbirds - the greatest opening sequence ever made. I challenge anyone to watch those titles and not get excited, and feel about 9 again!

The ones on the list are superb... But no opening in the history of television beats Cowboy Bebop's.

How can you not include the Doctor Who title sequence in this? It has one of the most well known and recognisable themes to be heard on TV and looks so epic with the lightening and the vortex. Doctor Who's title sequences have always been good.

It seems like a bit like a list of US cable shows at times- is that just an indication of more money and time spent on titles or just an indication of the normal UK slight over-reverence for US (cable) shows? It's difficult because you'd have to sit down and work out your own list - were I to do so, though, Dexter would certainly be there (the title sequence is a thing of brilliance). I completely agree on Game of Thrones being stunning (another take on the play on maps that's such a successful part of Aardman's Pirates). Rome's graffiti fest would also have a good shot, I'm very fond of Weeds sarcastic swipe at the suburbs, love Carnivale and empathise with the difficulty of choosing only one Wire (Blind Boys is on my Ipod playlist but show-wise I'd probably go for the kids in S4 as being the most apt).

Best title song ever for me (as opposed to titles I guess) - still Red Dwarf.

Is this list supposed to be in reverse order? If so, I agree with Dexter being the #1. True Blood should be much higher.

After reading the other comments: I'm an avid Doctor Who fan, but I agree that it isn't in the list, the title sequence isn't inspired enough. But Thunderbirds should be in the list, no questions asked!

I really like the opening titles for Misfits. They sort of lost their relevance after the first two seasons when they all got new powers but before hand they were great with a hint as to each character's power; eg Curtis's shadow moving backwards.

I liked the opening sequence for Last Chance to See - the kind of steam punk globe with the animals (not a million miles from Game of Thrones).

Those credits are as batshit insane as True Bloods.

The title sequence changes to co-ordinate with the universe or timeline that they're in and IT'S AWESOME.

Baby Boomers like me would add The Avengers (Steed&Peel), and The Wild, Wild West, which also incorporated the witty animated title sequence into the original commercial breaks.

have a very very similar feature up today too. Notable omissions from here (in my opinion):
Deadwood
Rectify
Justified
Community
Parks And Recreation

Even without the "Celtic" remake the Sons Of Anarchy theme song has quite possibly the cheesiest lyrics ever written.

The Americans opening titles are noticeable by their absence here.

Those are the wrong credits, those look like fan-made ones.
