Ahhh, the 80s. What a time to grow up! What tremendous pop culture to immerse ourselves in. If you are an Outposter of a certain age, back then network television was simply an absolute treasure trove of childhood excellence. From Knight Rider to The A-Team, Airwolf to Street Hawk, Automan to Manimal. BJ And The Bear, Magnum, CHiPs. We didn’t care if it was canceled after half a season, we would still be there for the re-runs.
One staple of the era was an intro that gave you all the background you needed even if you were jumping in for the first time, mid-season. It also enabled the cold open. It is something that feels lost in the mists of television time.
Fear not… as the comic geniuses and all-around good eggs that are the Auralnauts have resurrected this art and applied it to some of today’s biggest streaming shows. What would Ahsoka look like with an 80s-style intro….? (cue wibbly-wobbly imagination effects)
