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. 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. The West Wing
    No, I'm not crying. I'm leaking pure love of America.
  4. Taxi
    Haunting music. Doesn't at all feel like a comedy. Perfectly captures the bittersweet tone of the show.
  5. The Office
    Sucking up or again an intense and deft capturing of a great show's bittersweet tone? You decide.
  6. The Wire
    Season 4 only.
  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.
