9 thoughts on “Which TV Character Had the All-Time Best Introductory Scene?

  1. I was trying to find Joel Fleischman’s or Chris’ first scenes on Northern Exposure because I feel like those might have been great (I can’t remember 30 years ago TV exactly) and couldn’t find them. I did find this great breaking the fourth wall scene on YouTube though! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AoZHUDZN-pI

  2. Nice one Chuck.

    Brian I was actually wondering about Newhart the other day – how it was a a dream. Has that ever been done in any other series finales?

  3. st Elaewhere implied the entire show was a Fantasy by Westphal’s autistic son.

  4. I’d vote for Woody from Cheers. From the very first scene, Woody slid into the cast of a established show as if he belonged the whole time.

  5. President Bartlett’s entrance 45 minutes into the first episode of The West Wing, quoting the First Commandment “I am the Lord….” — which is either pious, sacrilegious, or both, considering the circumstances, and solving the conflict as a Deus ex machina.

  6. Another vote for Bartlet on The West Wing.

    His voice booming “I am the Lord, your God and you shall have no other God before me” answering the question someone asked and introducing us to the leader of the free world.
