I really love it. They have put so much care into it. Nowadays a lot of shows do not even get much of a title sequence or they cut it to save time for commercials.

It really is amazing! The transitions, the symbolism and everything.

For some reason it reminds me more of a Fantasy than a Sci Fi. But yeah, its good.

I love it. There's something about the whole style of it that really appeals to me, plus (of course) Bear's music.

I also love that it's character driven--no actor's names overlaid. Speaks very highly of the dedication of the series IMO. Presuming, of course, that it stays that way.

Don't know if I like it yet or not. Just seemed really different and like a stage theatre play. Though I was surprised there was an opening considering how short everyone has been going lately with just showing a title and a bit of music.

I love how different it is, for some reason it kinda reminds of something Tim Burton would do. I'm so gald this show has an opening sequence.....I love title sequence's in shows. And i'm upset SGU doesn't have one. I did think BSG's was a little too long though. :P

the open sets a tone for the show, adn lays out the players, and I enjoy it. it says to me 'these actors are players on a stage' and suggests that they hired a good actor for a role, not 'let's see what name pulls us the most ratings'

Not made my mind up yet. Bit tacky, but also quite different to other genre stuff. Gonna sit on the fence :P

It's unusual, very stylised and visually appealing.

It's better than just a montage and the theme is understated enough that it isn't going to get annoying.

Over zealous much? ;)

But seriously, does anyone get that fantasy feel from it?

I wouldn't say 'fantasy', but it has a feel to it that I'd liken to Sanctuary or Warehouse 13's intro.

Very much so! At times though It feels like something from a Tim Burton film.

I think its a good thing though, that way there's no "It's a soap not a Sci Fi!" thing. The feelings by the intro are set in a way that when Watching it feels like the right genre....I wonder if this was intentional?

the only bit i dont like is the infinty symbol hand over bit apart from that its good to see a title sequence rather than a title card like most new sci fi nowadays
