    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    Outer Limits's opener kicked ass, X Files had the best theme tune, but Twilight Zone was definitely the most awesome show.

    I voted the Outer Limits (the original, not the newer version).

    There is nothing wrong with your television set.
    Do not attempt to adjust the picture.
    We are controlling transmission.
    We will control the horizontal.
    We will control the vertical.
    We can change the focus to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity.
    For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear.
    You are about to participate in a great adventure.
    You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to... The Outer Limits.

    Ahh, and the truth has been spoken. I agree completely. Well, as long as your talking original Twilight Zone and not that new shit that popped up for a while.

    And opening sequences to actual shows, not just opening titles, Lost Season 2 Episode 1 was great.

    The best opening sequences surfaced prior to the 1980's.

    Here are my favorites:
    1) Hawaii-Five-O
    2) Danger Island
    3) Barnaby Jones
    4) Emergency
    5) Daktari
    7) Mission Impossible

    The orchestrated music, modern design and aesthetics all trump the crap from the 80's and beyond.
