Day 18 - Favorite title sequence

I'm going to go with my gut instinct on this one:



Alas, that video doesn't show you the actual opening because I can't find it on YouTube. It does let you listen to the song, which is ridiculously catchy and is something I often burst out with randomly. I love how absurd and irrelevant the opening of Aqua Teen Hunger Force is... which, as Quixote says, is perfectly definitive of the show.

Good times. If you're unfamiliar with the show, you can watch episodes (including the title sequence!) online at Adult Swim.

Although the opening of ATHF is one of Quixote's runners-up, his leading favorite is The Outer Limits:

Except I am unable to embed it, so you must click here.

Quixote considered the title sequences for both Star Trek and The Prisoner, but eventually concluded: "Even though both Star Trek and The Prisoner have their own appeal and are incredibly strong (and Star Trek is completely iconic), neither was as creative as The Outer Limits. It's the earliest title sequence I remember that integrates the viewer into the show right away, and it was creepy as hell (especially before they shortened it)."

Day 05 - A show you hate

I don't pay much attention to shows I don't like, so it's hard to qualify something that I feel enough distaste for to say "I hate that show." (At least without spending a lot of time dwelling on this subject, which I'd rather not do.)

I don't like The Family Guy or Squidbillies; they annoy me and I'm forever turning them off whenever they turn up on Adult Swim. That's really all I've got.

Quixote comes up with Dollhouse and Heroes, with Heroes as a show he cares much more strongly about. We loved the first season, but then were truly horrified by how it devolved. He was especially intensely disappointed and ended up turned off enough to turn off the show (and never check into future developments, as I would periodically do).

Short answers today! As I said, though, I don't spend much time on what I dislike completely. And I have to run off to work soon.

P.S. LOL, Quixote wandered back in here to give a mini-rant about how much he hated Star Trek: Enterprise, and that he'd like to add that to his answer. He was infuriated by how Berman and Braga used Enterprise to try and rewrite Star Trek to suit themselves and was incredibly displeased with how the show failed to live up to its potential.
