The Doc Speaks: My Top 10 Favorite Sci-Fi/Horror series intros

Admittedly, this came up after watching a recent editorial done by Nostalgia Critic on what he thought were the 11 best television intro sequences.  To some extent, I was in agreement with quite a few of them, since you’d think opinions are likely to overlap or connect in one way or another.  Back on topic, that list embodied what he felt best prepared the audience for the show ahead or helped to establish the general mood.  Or at the very least, got them excited for the rest of the 22/46 or so minute time slot.  Genre fiction works in particular inject that sense of ambiance and expectation within the intro, so that way viewers can get immersed into the world as soon as the show truly begins.  So with that, here are 10 of my personal favorite openings to sci-fi and horror themed TV shows!
