I have to say, those are both great intros. I've loved that Vikings intro for a long time.
The True Blood intro is cool too, very American south tune and imagery - I used to watch that show with my ex-gf.

The Inspector Morse Theme, thanks for sharing that. It has really good tension, dramatic build-up and release. Excellent.

Once you become a nihilist, music like that is no longer effective at moving you. Except when it's used in movies like braveheart. Basically in a universe in which everything is eventually lost to the nebulous void of eternal nothingness, not even the fall of an empire is interesting anymore.

The Witcher (Netflix) [2019]

Success of the popular and beloved rpg/fantasy/adventure video game series by Polish devs CD Projekt Red pushed The Witcher high enough into cultural consciousness to warrant its own Netflix series in 2019. More than just a critical and commercial success, The Witcher video game series (2007 - 2015) was an achievement of national pride in Poland - so much so that Polish Prime Minister Tusk gifted U.S. President Obama a collector's edition copy of The Witcher 2 during a meeting in Warsaw, 2011.

At the heart of the series is Geralt of Rivia, a storied but disdained witcher (i.e. mutant w/ magical abilities, product of ethically dubious alchemical experimentation), a gruff, cynical, but honorable mercenary for hire (coin), lawful neutral in alignment, with a streak of kind-heartedness. Chief among Geralt's friends and companions is the poet and bard, Dandelion, who recounts Geralt's adventures in ballad form and entreats listeners to employ his services, i.e. Toss a Coin to Your Witcher.

I have a strong affinity for tavern songs.

I'm also in a far away, fantasy/adventure kind of mood.
