Let me guess, you’re not watching Manhattan and you haven’t a clue as what it is. Well, I’m about drop some knowledge on you. So listen up. Manhattan is a TV series, set in the 1940s, chronicling one of the most important scientific races of the time – the race to build the world’s first atomic bomb. And it’s awesome.
A little while ago, when this blog was just starting out, I listed out some of my favourite TV opening title sequences. A few years later and the opening title sequence is still an endangered species. While some TV shows are still creating fantastic openers, others are opting out, like The Knick and Fargo. I guess, maybe it’s something to do with time. Or something more complicated I don’t know about.
Who knows, I still enjoy a good opener and since I last listed my favourites, I have a few new ones. So thought it was about time for my to update the list.
