This is one of my favorites.

Anyone else a fan of this show? I guess TV was caught up in some Indiana Jones worship in 1982.

My favorite was and always will be: Miami Vice
That was such a cool intro.

I've never heard of Tales of the Gold Monkey before. Isn't that reverend Camden flying that plane?

Always liked BRING EM' BACK ALIVE better than TALES..., both were really just Indy rip offs.

Loved the FALL GUY song...

One problem that I have with TV shows nowadays...is that there are hardly any intros anymore. They go straight into the action. Not that there's a problem with THAT, but the traditional opening sequence is pretty much a thing of the past.

I love so many intros but my favourite outro is the Incredible Hulk. That tune rules

I love this show, the intro and the music.
I actually can play this tune on guitar.

The reason they do that is because there are more commercials these days. For a 1-hour program, they have about 16 minutes for commercials. They don't want to "waste" air time with a long intro.

Sledge Hammer; you just have to love how ludicrously they move the camera around the gun like it's a beautiful woman we're supposed to admire, then Sledge blasting the hole in the screen (which I'm told did panic several ABC affiliates the first time it aired).

Close second: "Believe it or not, I'm walking on air, I never thought I could feel so free..." You know the rest.

Nothing in the '80s tops the Miami Vice intro. It might actually be the greatest TV intro of all-time. Right there with Hawaii Five-0 which it obviously took its cue from. I also like the Gary Shandling Show intro for pure self-referential hilarity and Tales from the Darkside for sheer creepiness.
