Best TV Show Opening Credits
TV Shows needs a great intro. An opening credit that puts us in the mood for what we're going to see next. This list lists the very best of them. It doesn't matter if you're watching ten episodes in a row, these are the intros that you'll never fast-forward through.
Game of Thrones (2011)
The opening to Game of Thrones is a masterpiece in itself. A wonderfully animated and crafted sequence, who is different from each episode, that gets your blood pumped and adrenaline sky high for the next hour of dragons, murder, betrayal, intrigues and sex. The music is probably the best piece of music to ever hit the TV screen, and if this intro doesn't get you excited for Game of Thrones, there's something fundamentally wrong with you.
True Detective (2014)
Set to the brilliant song by The Handsome Family, the opening credits of True Detective are beautiful to witness. With dreamlike perfection the opening shows us the bleak and hazy landscapes of Louisiana sprawled within the characters of the show. Setting us in the mood for its world of sin, insanity, death and sex.
The opening of Dexter takes something that's very ordinary and routine like for so many people, and twists into something extremely macabre and grotesque. In order for this to work, the sound design and imagery needs to be fantastic, which it is beyond a doubt. Nothing sums up the nature of our favourite serial killer as much as this opening.
True Blood (2008)
Without showing any scene or character from the show, the intro to True Blood perfectly manages to capture its grizzly take on vampires, religion, death and sex by showing what seems to be randomly collected images. Set to Bad Things by Jace Everett, this opening is as catchy as it is fascinating in its grotesqueness.
What we've got here is an opening that is quite simply extremely visually appealing. With it's terrific musical score, the aesthetics and its sense of blind justice, the slow paint/blood dipping to reveal certain landmarks and figures is quite simply stunning. This is quite literally a painting. A beautiful one.
The very best of opening credits that TV Shows have granted us.
