15 Cool TV Opening Credits

We wish more shows had opening credits!

  1. iZombie

The comics style is to die for.

  1. Pretty Little Liars

Did you know that it was Ashley Benson who suggested the song "Secret" by The Pierces for the creepy opening credits?

  1. Game of Thrones

It works because 1) it serves as a crash course on the geography of the Seven Kingdoms and 2) the special effects look as cool now as it did in season one. 

  1. The Walking Dead

The haunting song and suggestive images instantly put you in a post-apocalyptic mood.

  1. The O.C.

The OG forever summer.

  1. One Tree Hill

The masterpiece responsible for our collective LSS-ing on "I Don't Wanna Be."

  1. Dawson's Creek

One Tree Hill's earnestness meets The OC's summer vibe.

  1. Gilmore Girls

It's like we always find something new to love every time we watch the opening credits. For instance, did you ever notice that they spell it as "Gilmore girls" and not "Gilmore Girls"”? We were completely oblivious until a few months ago!  

  1.  F.R.I.E.N.D.S.

Its beauty is in the simplicity (and randomness of that orange suede couch by the fountain).

  1. The Hills

Feel the rain on your skin! We can't hear Natasha Bedingfield's "Unwritten" without thinking of Lauren, Heidi, Audrina, and Whitney.

  1. Laguna Beach

Let the rain fall down, I'm coming clean... The predecessor of The Hills went with Hilary Duff for their memorable opening credits.

  1. The X-Files

Watching it feels like being hypnotized to find the truth out there.

  1. The Simpsons

There's always something different every episode, like what Bart writes on the chalkboard and how the whole family ends up on the couch to watch TV. Genius!

  1. Sailor Moon

Confession: We've tried to learn how to play the opening song on the piano—"tried" being the operative word!

  1. Voltes V

The fact that the opening song is in Japanese never stopped us from learning how to sing it by heart!
