Live Poll: Don't Skip the Intro

Netflix has a button with which you can skip the intros of the series, however these shows would not be the same without their emblematic opening scenes. This button has raised criticism since it belittles the work of those behind this creative process. Which of these TV series has the intro that you would not skip?

If you have any suggestions, as long as it is a memorable intro you will be welcome.

Good one!

FYC:

Definitely 'Orange is the New Black'

The next two are really short so I don't know that they should be included in the list but they're very good, I think, and they fit the series well:

Breaking Bad
Ozark

Thanks Rub, Orange is the New Black added, however, Ozark and Breaking Bad have very short intros and I am focusing on intro of real images, I think the only one in the list of this style is Stranger Things and it is because it really deserves it, even while doing this list I had a dilemma whether or not to choose Breaking Bad.

Umm... Stranger Things of course!  

I understand the option because sometimes, as much as you might like an intro, you just want to get to it.  Sometimes intros are long, too.  But Stranger Things is just short enough and good enough that it's just silly to skip.  ;)

Oh yes, if someone skips any of these intros, he doesn't know what he's missing.

A recent title sequence that I have seen discussed a lot is HBO's Succession.

You actually like the introductions? You're a masochist. I suppose you enjoy the 6 or 7 different production company titles we have to endure before the start of every recent movie too? Just start the show already.

As a big title design and company logo buff I can assure you that there are more than enough of us fans out there. Of course, it is up to director of the movie or showrunners of the series to choose what to do with openings or company logos, but there are quite a few ways to make them a part of the movie and not just a tedious supplement. And it's not that tedious for me, to be honest: I always view them as a part of the experience. Movie begins with the first stuido logo and ends with the last one/copyright notice, whatever there is at the end.
