Opening Credits

I watch quite a bit of tv and the one thing I have always enjoyed about shows are the opening credits. Over the years most shows have cut there credits down to just a title and I miss the days of full scores with photos of the cast members. Each new season waiting to see what they have updated. I like later in the season as well when I start to be able to place the clips in the opening credits. 

Here are my favorite opening credits for tv shows:

Firefly-I love the song as well as the photos and font. I always watch this one the entire way through.

Psych-This is one of my favorite theme songs, I watch this one the whole way through because they change it often and you don't know what you are going to see. 

The West Wing-I love the music to this and like all the photos. 

Gilmore Girls-Once again love the theme song. 

Monk-Genius opening theme song always makes me smile.

Old School ER-I grew up with ER and couldn't believe it when they changed the music. I loved the full version with Mark sliding in his chair and Bennet fist punching in the hallway. 

Kim Possible-Call me, beep me if you want to reach me...

Roswell-Perfect theme song, enjoyed the alien writing for the aliens names. 

Doctor Who-I had this turned into a ringtone, it makes me so happy. 

Smallville-Another theme song that fits the show. 

Grey's Anatomy-I like how this show took away the opening credits and just do the title with the sound. I feel that it fits so well.

Sabrina, the Teenage Witch-This show was always fun for the different outfits she would wear. Later after she went to college it wasn't as fun.

Clarissa Explains it All-A very early show that I enjoyed the credits of. I liked the way it melded into each other. 

NCIS, CSI, NCIS, LA, Bones-all the same type of show, all with music that makes you want to dance. 

The O.C.-I was really only a fan of the first season, but I love the opening credits. 

Degrassi-The early seasons after the old seasons, I love that they made references to the old series but keep it fresh. I like the theme song as well. 

I am sure there are many more but I can't think of them right now because it is late and I am getting sleepy. Do you have a favorite?

That's all for now...

NCIS and Tea

I am procrastinating right now. I should be going to bed or working on my craft swap but instead I am watching Season 5 (About Face) of NCIS and drinking yummy tea. Nathan is doing the hulu in the kitchen for his cat and making me laugh. 

My craft swap is going to be really cool-my partner is from Australia and we have almost no shows in common other than Doctor Who. She likes old Doctor and I am a 10th Doctor girl. (What are your thoughts on 11th Doctor.) However I am watching some of her other shows thanks to youtube and they are kinda fun. Here are the items I am planning for her:

a tv tray with three of her favorite shows
a clock with images from Doctor Who 
two boxes with various images on them

other items I would like to make are;
a bag

We shall see how much time I have due to the fact that I am a procrastinator. I am also working on a quilt for a friend of mine that has been in the making for 2 years. I am printing out squares with photos of all her favorite tv characters on them and then adding borders of blue and brown brocade around them. I have finally finished the layout of all the sheets (a total of 82) and have started printing them. I am really excited about this project but nervous about how it will all turn out. I will post photos as soon as I have it started. 

Now I should go and head for bed before it gets much later. 

Sweet Dreams
