Best Soap Opera Opening

Recommended Posts

I don’t think many agree, but I quite liked the opening for Generations.

 

 

This, of course:

 

 

Majestic and beautiful yet simple and British.

 

 

If we’re also talking primetime, the Season One intro to Central Park West was so sexy.

 

 

There’s this Spanish soap Grand Hotel, which is sort of Downton Abbey on steroids, and it’s intro is sort of a marvel.

The above opening does not look like the original order, pretty sure it started with Asa, Viki; Clint, Delilah, Bo, etc..

 

My fave 1983 Pam Long GL opening

Days of Our Lives 1993-present is clearly the most iconic. When is the last time you can remember a soap opening lasting 25 years? It's so soapy and dramatic. Yeah, they shortened it in recent years, but at least they kept "Like sands through the hourglass..."

My FAVORITE ATWT opening I know isn't a fan favorite for everyone, but I'll share it anyways and that is the 1993-1999 opening:

I also enjoyed Hollyoaks opening. 

 

The opening is the only good thing about Hollyoaks. They put more thought and creativity into it than they do into the actual show.

gosh that ATWT opening reminds me of the bad times on the show and I stopped watching.  It was such a contrast from the opening before.  But I see we have 2 in common at least!

I enjoy Hollyoaks.  I am enjoying it more because Nancy/Darren are not on.  I do hate Maxine though.  She is FF material for me.  I cannot wait for Grace to get her groove back and Bitch I'm Mercedes McQueen back!

Oy. The “flushing toilet” opening. Whenever they’d have a new cast member, they’d stitch in their shot in most budget-looking way possible.

BEST: All of the openings for Edge except the last one before cancellation. Horrible

 

Second Best: All the Guiding Light openings in early 1990s

 

Best update: AW under Goutman

 

Worst update:  GH current opening is absolutely horrible.  Fake outer space skyline.  Dumb orchestral accompaniment.  Inexplicable really...I've generally been a fan of Valentini's visuals on GH but not the opening.
