15 Must-Know Egyptian TV Show Intros
In an age that has become attached to the little box called “Skip Intro”, the artistic elements and effort put into TV show intros are underappreciated. Streaming services have succumbed to hectic lifestyles, and the little box at the corner of screens presents itself as a tempting proposition to shave a few minutes out of the day.
Netflix began offering this feature for TV episodes in 2017 and reported in 2022 that on a typical day, the Skip Intro button is pressed 136 million times, “saving members 195 years of cumulative time”.
While the option is a feature loved by many and has been adopted by many streaming services over the years, some iconic title sequences are considered an art form themselves.
For many Egyptians, TV intros seep into human emotions and create relationships of love and admiration between the viewer and the show. Some TV intros, like Khali Balak Men Zizi’s intro by the Egyptian band Sharmoofers, become beloved songs listened to regularly by Egyptians. From the internationally acclaimed Egyptian composer Hisham Nazih to the iconic Omar Khairat and singer Aly El Haggar – Egyptian television overtures, no matter how long, are often too good to ignore.
