    I'm sure there will be plenty of classics that show up here, like A-Team[/bb, Knight Rider, Miami Vice, etc, but I have to say, this is my favorite opening. Love the music, love the scenes. And it doesn't hurt that it's a great show:

    And, just for fun, the greatest opening that doesn't actually exist....

    Here's four versions of my favorite opening. Second one is my favorite. Less crap, more story.

    Fall Guy
    A-Team
    Night Rider
    Greatest American Hero

    When I was a kid the "like Tarzan from a vine..." line that was played while the Fall Guy truck was jumping, was about the most epic juxtaposition in the world. Man....that GMC was my dream as a kid.

    The Knight Rider intro was just soooo futuristic. (LOL...so corny now)

    Miami Vice had a cool song and opening.

    I also like the intro to Dexter, how a serial killer starts the day! :rofl:

    However, Sanford and Son has the best SONG ever...and the intro is pretty cool to go along with it.

    That is actually a pretty good answer. They have had some very impressive talent do that.
