Best spy opening right now is FX's Archer.
I disagree with your theory that more shows have short openings. I am trying to think of the shows I watch and the only one that is as short as lost is Eureka. Granted I don't watch everything, but shows with standard opening credits, the NBC thursday comedies, House, Big Bang Theory, Psych. I could go on...

the only thing I like about any opening credits (including 'True Blood' & 'Burn Notice') is skipping past them! don't like 'em @ all

You guys are so cute! The selections were nice too. I really hate that Weeds intro song, FWIW. Was just catching up on Entourage and that's a pretty crap (and really LONG) intro too.
Huh, there isn't really much to say about it. You guys make me smile though. XX!

Disagree about the negative comments about Nurse Jackie credits.It is catchy, well done, and I always feel that it is very brave of Edie Falcoto be filmed so close up!A fantastic show.

Breaking Bad has a good opening, kind of reminds you that he is a nobel prize winning chemist before each show, since he more or less turns into a drug dealer.
Great show by the way.

I'm a huge fan of the Psych opening credits- even the longer ones. The clips are funny, the music is still good after 5 seasons...and they do alternative versions to go with episode themes!
I also really tend to love sci-fi credits sequences. From the powerful instrumental themes of Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis, to the eerie Farscape, to the always-wonderful Firefly theme...yeah. Good stuff.

I'm glad you did this segment! Opening credits are something I always either fall in love with or despise.
Agree with Mad Men and Dexter, I always want to keep watching. Archer is also good and Skins is a favourite!
True Blood however I can't stand! It’s so long, irrelevant and turns my stomach.
Oldies but goodies have to be Buffy, Charmed and Firefly. Great theme songs and clips that set the whole feel of the shows.

i dont know why you hype Covert Affairs that much i saw the first few episodes and got bored pretty soon. if it comes to spy series i stick to Burn Notice or Rubicon.

Hate True Blood's with a passion. Although the show seems stupid I don't dislike the credits. House is one of my favourites and it didn't make your list =( I also like Friday Night Lights' credits but maybe just for the song. Also Covert Affairs is awful, it looks like some high school kids made it.

My two favorite openings themes are, psych and lie to me.Psych, because its so funny. Lie to me, it says a lot about the show.
