Thursday Movie Picks - TV Edition: Opening Title Sequences
This week's TV theme from Wandering Through The Shelves is something I love talking about. TV opening title sequences. It's a weird thing to be obsessed about but I love it. I normally just stick with 3 picks every week but for once I'm going to bump it to 6 because I just can't narrow it down. Instead of the normal gifs I use, I'll link youtube videos to each title sequence.
1) Game of Thrones - This is the undisputed winner of opening title sequences. The wonderful music, the ever changing map, this is my all time favorite opening title sequence. I still listen to the music from this show often, it's just so perfect. Watch
2) Mad Men - This is another one where the music really elevates it. While it's just a drawing of a man falling from a building past so many advertisements, the music accompanying it makes it perfect. Watch
3) Daredevil - The blood red covering New York, his saints, everything. Of all the Marvel shows, this one definitely had the best opening title. Watch
4) The Night Of - This was a limited series and the opening titles showed bits of New York and various crimes the series would talk about. It's very underrated and HBO always has amazing opening title sequences. Watch.
5) His Dark Materials - A newer show, but I'm obsessed with the theme song and the imagery is beautiful. Watch
6) True Blood - These credits show no one that is actually in the show but they are so very Southern and it just fits the tone of the show perfectly. Watch
