Default Current TV's Best Opening Credits?

TV shows have the standard opening credits with scenes and stuff, but there are some shows that have titles that are a work of art. What are the best of them? WHO is the best?

Please vote AFTER you see ALL the opening credits! And please do not vote for you favorite show just beacuse it is. If you see opening titles that you think are the best EVEN if you do not watch the show, vote for it.

Before voting consider the music, animation, stile, direction and scene selection of the titles.

In Alphabetical order:

It was incredibly hard choice but I voted for Mad Men. Beautiful visuals, great music and short.

The last one is the main reason I didn't vote for Game of Thrones. It is a beautiful opening but it is just to damn long. After few episodes I got tired of it. I don't have that problem with Mad Men's opening.

To note, that I consider Dexter and The Borgias as the closest runners ups.

I voted for Dexter, but came close to picking Archer or Bored to Death as "Other" votes.

I voted for other because I think House's intro is the best with Community's as a close second.

House, Hawaii Five-O, Mad Men are all good but currently its pretty tough to pic between GOT and Mad Men. A:EMH's should get a nod as well. Oh and Bones is pretty awesome. Damn now it's between Mad Men and Bones for me! Argh......

Game of Thrones, hands down. They change almost every week, and can't wait to see them in later seasons when they go to Braavos, Pentos and other places across the Narrow Sea.

Have to go with True Blood on this one. Those opening credits and song really just capture the entire premise of the whole show perfectly.

Awesome Re: Current TV's Best Opening Credits?

what, no love for the Hawaii Five-O opening, I get pumped whenever it starts and rocks the surround sound

but of the ones on that poll, I have to say Fringe but I always liked the 'alternate versions' like the 1985 one and the 'other universe' ones

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:

1985 version

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:

other universe version

Wouldn't only watching the opening credits be kind of insufficient? I mean one would have to watch all the shows to see how each opening credits represents each show respectively to judge fairly.

I guess we could just be voting on opening credits alone.

True Blood. There was just something trance inducing about it with its Louisiana visuals and that song.
