Tv Show Title Sequences That Make Me Emotional, Ranked

  1. 1.
    Cheers
    Maybe the greatest title sequence in the history of television. GOAT theme song matched with perfectly curated images. Feels like it's supporting you when you're sad, binge-watching the show at 2am.
  2. 2.
    Transparent
    Those home movies + That beautiful, simple piano = A painful nostalgia for an upper class Jewish childhood that is very confusing for a Catholic.
  3. 3.
    The West Wing
    No, I'm not crying. I'm leaking pure love of America.
  4. 4.
    Taxi
    Haunting music. Doesn't at all feel like a comedy. Perfectly captures the bittersweet tone of the show.
  5. 5.
    The Office
    Sucking up or again an intense and deft capturing of a great show's bittersweet tone? You decide.
  6. 6.
    The Wire
    Season 4 only.
  7. 7.
    Honorable Mention: The Man In The High Castle
    I don't know how I feel about Amazon's new pilot. It's based on a great Philip K. Dick novel, has an insane, fantastic premise and is beautifully shot. But the dialogue is often ham-fisted and inelegant. That said the title sequence is perfect and features a version of "Edelweiss" that is equal parts haunting and beautiful.
