While watching my new favorite show,Spartacus, i realized that it had a pretty lame opening. I don’t know if it’s because they didn’t think the show would be a success or simply because they were going for the comic book look…(but even then it doesn’t justify the quality). Lame! An opening has to be captivating, creative and enticing. I know you should not judge a book by its cover but that doesn’t mean hand out the manuscript.
So here’s my top ten opening credits (in no particular order):
This opening does a good job of following/setting the tone of the show. Staying in that Creepy/scary fringe zone.
One of the most notable morning routine in TV. Unique!
Stays in touch with the Main character’s background and where he’s going.
Plays off well of the mystery in every diagnostic.
