My love of opening credit sequences, especially at HBO, is well-documented (by me), but last night I was reminded of the greatest opening sequence of all-time.
Seriously, I defy you to find one better. Even "Wonder Years" falls short. I mean, isn't this nostalgia at its finest? The imagery captures the show's essence so purely, recalling how each character has, in a sense, always existed. It's difficult to watch, and hear those doo-wops, without a big fat grin breaking out.
(Even without Shelly Long, I feel this rendition is the best, primarily because it includes Frasier, yet still closes with .)
I'm open to other suggestions, though. Paste Magazine has a few, and seems to agree with me.
