Greatest TV Openings: Desperate NY Apartment Hunting Edition

Adam Scott has done the world a huge favor by re-making classic openings of TV shows.  This time, he chose one of my all-time favorite short-lived TV shows: Bosum Buddies.  Tom Hanks and Peter Scolari were so very good and had such great chemistry that it did not need the cross-dressing stuff (which they tended to dump later on).  The intro combines Billy Joel with a variety of short bits displaying the talents and timing these guys had.  Turns out that Adam Scott and Paul Ruud were up to the task:

My wife probably liked the show simply because it is one of the very few to capture semi-realistically the challenges of finding an affordable place in NY (unlike, say, Friends).
