15 Cool TV Opening Credits
The comics style is to die for.
- Pretty Little Liars
Did you know that it was Ashley Benson who suggested the song "Secret" by The Pierces for the creepy opening credits?
- 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.
- The Walking Dead
The haunting song and suggestive images instantly put you in a post-apocalyptic mood.
- The O.C.
The OG forever summer.
- One Tree Hill
The masterpiece responsible for our collective LSS-ing on "I Don't Wanna Be."
- Dawson's Creek
One Tree Hill's earnestness meets The OC's summer vibe.
- 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!
Its beauty is in the simplicity (and randomness of that orange suede couch by the fountain).
- The Hills
Feel the rain on your skin! We can't hear Natasha Bedingfield's "Unwritten" without thinking of Lauren, Heidi, Audrina, and Whitney.
- 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.
- The X-Files
Watching it feels like being hypnotized to find the truth out there.
- 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!
- Sailor Moon
Confession: We've tried to learn how to play the opening song on the piano—"tried" being the operative word!
- Voltes V
The fact that the opening song is in Japanese never stopped us from learning how to sing it by heart!
