'Miami Vice'? Really? And not 'The Sopranos'?

Posted on

It’s a losing proposition, I tell ya, writing these lists for EW (print and online). Sure, there are those one or two kind souls who might praise you for your keen judgment and finely-honed critical sensibility. But most take an alarming, even predatory, delight in telling you what TV show/movie/album/song/book you forgot to include. And so I expect it to go with this list of 15 great TV-show opening credits. For the record, I did consider The Brady Bunch and The Wire. The Patty Duke Show and The Garry Shandling Show. Freaks and Geeks and Laverne & Shirley. And, yes, The Sopranos (below). Okay (… deep breath…) I’m ready: go ahead and tell me what intros I should’ve added.  And, if you’re up to it, your reasons why.
