The New Alan Thicke

Every time I watch Parenthood, I am delighted by the just-perfect use of a Bob Dylan song (“Forever Young”) as the theme music. And every time I feel that delight, I ponder the notion that all TV shows would be well-served to use Dylan as their theme music. To wit:

·         How I Met Your Mother – “Mama, You’ve Been on My Mind”

·         The Good Wife – “She’s Your Lover Now”

·         Treme – “The Levee’s Gonna’ Break”

·         Boardwalk Empire – “When the Deal Goes Down”

·         Hung – “Lay, Lady Lay”

·         The West Wing – “Political World”

·         The Wire – “Everything Is Broken”

·         Animal Practice – “God Gave Names to All the Animals”

·         Game of Thrones – “Masters of War”

·         Sons of Anarchy – “Highway 61”

·         Justified – “Thunder on the Mountain”

·         That 70’s Show – “Rainy Day Woman  #12 & 35”

Got more?

Until Whenever

But the best part of the Parenthood opening are those childhood pics they got of the cast.
