The Video Vault of Mora Tau! 6/16/11

Yes, let's dig into the VVoMT, and see what we might see...

Let's take a look at a couple of my current favorite TV openings:

Here's the opening for the sadly cancelled show The Good Guys (Fox):

This show was hilarious - it quickly jumped high on my list of faves - so of course the plug was pulled. *sigh*

Here's another set of opening credits I just adore - Psych (USA)- this is from a season or two back, but it's another set of funny show images set to a rockin' tune:

Psych is a truly fun and funny show - light hearted mysteries about a fake psychic with an incredible gift for observation and his lifelong best friend - with incredible byplay between series stars James Roday and Dule Hill. One of the best ways the show has demonstrated their sense of humor is the willingness to change the opening and opening theme for certain episodes. Here's one of those for a holiday edition:

And when they did a Bollywood episode:

And best of all - this past season Psych did a tribute to the show Twin Peaks with an episode entitled "Dual Spires" and they got several Twin Peaks cast members to appear in the episode, including Sheryl Lee, Ray Wise, Dana Ashbrook, Catherine Coulson, Robin Lively and Lenny von Dohlen. To top off this very funny hour, here's how the theme song went down that week:

And that's really Julee Cruise - the singer from the original Twin Peaks!

And how 'bout that? You can watch the openings to five episodes of television in just under three minutes!

And now you can watch me say til next post, you Can Poke Me With A Fork, Cause I Am Outta Here!
