Personally I love the Dexter intro. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QhGMGjs3DSs

It somehow manages to take something as simple as a typical morning routine and make it sinister. It's a perfect foil for the show, as Dexter is a serial killer disguised as a normal guy. Also, I really like the music.

This does it for me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzlG28B-R8Y But if it's allowed to be a cartoon of some sorts, I'll have to rethink that

That's actually one of my favourite shows of all time. It really worries me that I can kind of relate with Dexter, not that I am a serial killer or anything.

Ok, just joking! But I did love it when I was a kid.

Most spooky intro:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gwg7ZVOu5e0

I was haunted by this as a kid, still am, nothing since has had quite the same impact on me.

Never seen that, but yes, very creepy! Somehow that happy sounding music against the weird video makes it even spookier.

Ok, in all fairness to OP, here's my favorite current intro - Breaking Bad:

Exactly, it's the schizo juxtaposition that makes it so effective. I haven't seen this carried out so well in any other intro. In fact the closest I have seen is American Psycho axing someone's head while raving on about Huey Lewis and the News. Very disturbing!

That was Adventure Time. Let's see if this one works... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHjg6cTxmrQ

Have to agree, Game of Thrones has an awesome opening.

Some other favorites of mine:

Fringe: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-q_gmpvLmc
(Also got a kick out of their retro opening: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXirR1jFgck)

M*A*S*H (Absolute classic): http://vimeo.com/57248653

It's one of my favorite shows as well. This year is going to be rough on me. I have to watch my 2 favorite shows end forever, the shows being Dexter and Breaking Bad.

I'd have to agree with tony, game of thrones is just so impressive, and the sheer gravity behind the music and the mechanical aspects of an old-style world is so cool. Also, I'd like to add, cersei's annoying and Charles dance as tywin is the best actor ever (other than Bryan cranston)
