Great Opening Title Sequence

Television shows are all over the map when it comes to the opening titles/musical themes. Some are classics, such as Monk (mostly Season 2+ but even Season 1). Some are incredibly lengthy, such as the initial opening sequences for Jag (do we really need background on Harm every time?) and Quantum Leap (I guess Bellasario liked to get ALL prior information out of the way upfront). And some, such as Castle, are bizarrely short.

Opening titles and musical themes from the 1980s and 1990s tend to be lengthy and often hokey. So I have to give extra kudos to Matlock (1986-1995). For the time-period, it truly is in a class of its own. (And only a minute!)

Personally, I like openings with bombastic jazz music
