    It seems these day ever show just give you the title and then jumps in and while from a pacing point of view I can understand this am I th only one who misses opening credits on Tv shows? I liked being given time to read the names while a catchy theme tune played. I miss the days of every show having a theme tune and the best were really good like Star Trek,Rockford,and The A Team. I don't know maybe I am just an old stick in the mud but I really miss theme tunes.

    I love the themes tunes of classic shows like Miami Vice, Knight Rider, The A Team, Magnum P.I and such, but I don't have a lot of time so I appreciate it when shows get straight to the point these days.

    I miss closing credits! Sometimes I want to see who played a minor character, and those credits used now--a black strip with white letters of names zooming by at 1/2 second per name--are impossible to read.
