In the opening credits, a snake (a Mexican black kingsnake) slithers across a marble table (in a homage/parody to I, Claudius (1976), a historical/political drama series which starred Patsy Byrne). However, the snake doesn't go the way it should, and at the end is removed and replaced with an object (the object varies depending on the episode).
