    Yeah, if this were 1982, it would be on AM radio between Greatest American Hero and Welcome Back Kotter. Bland, but catchy.

    Bosom Buddies actually used Billy Joels' "Its my life" as its theme but I don't think they used the original version (different singer I think)

    Yup...and supposedly, Tom Hanks is one of the singers.



    That's another thing shows don't do anymore...explain the premise at the begining of each episode.

    As far as current shows go, The Big Bang Theory has a quirky quirky and not completely terrible theme song. I was horrified to learn it's performed by the fucking Barenaked Ladies.

    I'll throw in The Cosby Show for classic themes, though I confess to having a personal connection to it.

    I am intrigued and wish to know more about United States of Tara. Which counts as a win for an opening sequence, as far as I'm concerned.

    My wife listens to the cheesy dance channel on XM all the time...someone's already done it.

    EDIT...so I'm sure Daft Punk will copy it in a couple years.

    Come on people. This is how they should be made. Simple, explain the entire premise of the show in the opening credits, no questions need to be asked about wtf is going on in the show:









    Keeping it simple all ten seasons. I watch them before every episode. No skipping.

    I'm not sure It's a good show, yet, but I really love Toni Collette and have been enjoying some of her 'alters' (other personalities), Buck in particular.

    I like how it used to say "The worst ever made" instead of "The worst we can find." I'm sure that was changed for rhyming reasons, but it's also a truth in advertising thing. There's no way they could ever get the rights to The Phantom Menace or any Michael Bay movies.

    I'm don't care for the structure. I've only seen the first couple of shows, but I don't like how there always has to be a conflict or some other kind of stress to set her off. I'm sure real life schizos are like that, but it wastes too much time.

    Also, the half hour format is a bit short to deal with a serious issue. They are trying to make it look all important, but really it's just a sitcom where you laugh at the weirdo...it's just that they used a mentally ill person rather than Urkel or the guy with the tool show.

    It's entertaining, but nothing more
