Can you guess the TV show based on the opening scene?

Life is a highway, and so is the opening shot from lots of TV shows.

The opening scenes of some of TV's most memorable shows can be deceptively hard to remember amid some of the more standout moments that occur throughout any series run. That's why we wanted to double back and remember how some of our favorite shows first started, frame by frame. 

So what was the preferred opening scene more often than not? The overview shot. A lot of shows from the '60s, '70s and '80s started with either bird's-eye views of cities or highways. 

These more generic scenes can make it a challenge to discern the legacy show these opening scenes belong to forever.  Think you're up to the challenge? Take the quiz and find out how many opening scenes you have cycling on replay in your memory. Good luck!

#7 is wrong. That shot is from "Head of the Family" not "The Dick Van Dyke Show."

You got 12 out of 14
Nice work! Not very many opening scenes managed to escape your attention.

Clarify 14 for me. If these are the first scenes from the first episode or credit roll, I don’t think one would find 1970’s model cars on Ironside which made its debut in 1967.
