The Twilight Zone
The Outer Limits
I had to vote unsolved mysteries.
I can sleep in till noon anytime I want
Though there's not many days that I do
Gotta get up and take on that world
When your an adult it's no cliche it's the truth
You forgot tales from the dark side.
2 oz blended whiskey
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 tsp powdered sugar
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.
I figured xfiles cause I remember it the best. I remember unsolved mysteries scared the shit out of me when I was like 6
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.
Scary Door beats all:

The Outer Limits opening always made me shit my pants. It didn't help that it only came on at midnight where I live.

The best opening sequences surfaced prior to the 1980's.
Here are my favorites:
2) Danger Island
3) Barnaby Jones
7) Mission Impossible
The orchestrated music, modern design and aesthetics all trump the crap from the 80's and beyond.
I am actually in the process of re-watching all of the X-Files seasons. My wife has never seen them altogether.
The music is cool during the opening sequence but the visuals get old, chapter advance fixes that
