Alexisfan is going to love this thread.

 

My least favourite is any version of this one. It makes me feel like I'm going to have a seizure

^I kinda like that one. The Sirens opening. Cause, it's trippy in the dark when I'm on Ambien. Plus, it was the opening when I found GH.

 

My least favorite.

Yeah, that one could make anyone reach for the Dramamine.  The best part, though, was TG getting up from his chair and walking away at the end.  It's like even he doesn't want to be bothered with this [!@#$%^&*].  LOL.

"Horrid" doesn't begin to describe it.  For one, is there even a theme song anymore?  What I hear, IMO, doesn't qualify even as an abbreviated version of one.  Frankly, they were better off with just a simple "GH -- GENERAL HOSPITAL" title card.

They need FOTH back for the 50th.

 

If they cannot do the full thing for time restraints. They should split it up into two FOTH openings. With rotating cast members every day.

It's become of my all-time favorite punch lines on this board.  :)

That wasn't ATWT's worst.

 

This was. Even though I loved the clips. The background noise sounded like a john flushing.

It's not a good sign when the theme song doesn't kick in, for lack of a better word, until just before the halfway mark.

 

Also, a windmill?  WTF?

How appropriate, given the state of the show.

 

I, for one, hated all the ATWT openings that included actors' faces.  It seems like the more variations they attempted with it, the further away from the "world" motif it got.

Felt like I was out in the farm somewhere waiting for Hee Haw to come on.

It's not possible for me to love you more than I do in this moment :wub:

I like the varied shot compositions though, especially the three person shot in the capture and some of the close ups

NEVER liked it, NEVER thought it fit the show. It made it look like a damned cheap stereotype of soap opera when the show was otherwise at its best.

 

I also never liked this:

 

 

Made me cringe as a kid and still does. Also that Johnny Mathis Loving opening always bothered me too.

My mom adored that ATWT opening. It was always her favorite.

 

That OLTL opening is basically soft core porn. And, it looks like Jessica Tuck's in there.
