What's The Very Best Cold Open Of A TV Show That You Can Think Of?

The first few minutes can say A LOT.

In case you're not familiar with the term, cold opens are the short opening at the beginning of sitcoms or dramas (a mini-act, if you will) that will sometimes roll before the opening credits. Shows like The Office or Brooklyn Nine-Nine do this brilliantly.

NBC

We want to know what YOU think the best cold open is! Maybe it was the introduction of Lost Season 2, Episode 1, "Man of Science, Man of Faith" when, at first, you have no idea what's happening — but it all comes together.

ABC / Hulu

Or maybe the best is Parks and Rec Season 3, Episode 9, where Ron fakes a tooth extraction.

NBC

Although rare, perhaps you thought one of the Game of Thrones cold opens was spectacularly epic, like in Season 4, Episode 1 when Lord Tywin melts down Ned Stark's sword.

HBO
