Thursday Movie Picks - TMP Television Edition: Opening Title Sequence

Wandering Through the Shelves hosts Thursday Movie Picks. It's a weekly series where bloggers post and share various movie picks every Thursday. 

The rules are simple: based on the theme of the week pick three to five movies and tell us why you picked them. For further details and the schedule visit the series main page here.

This week is Thursday Movie Picks - TV EDITION - Opening Title Sequence.

Mad Men

I don't know why, but this theme song is constantly playing in my head. The opening title sequence is a  perfect illustration of Don's literal downfall with the rise of commercial advertising over the course of the series. 

3rd Rock From The Sun

A zany show calls for an equally quirky opening sequence and fun graphics of planets playing hopscotch and basketball in-between plots. I don't know why but this also reminds me of The Big Bang Theory theme for some reason.

Defending Jacob

This show earned a lot of criticism that it should've just been a two hour movie instead of a tv series, but I liked waiting for the next episode every week. Despite the plot inconsistencies, I did not guess that  the opening sequence tied into the story until the end - which I thought was a subtle way to get people to rewatch the series and see how all of the dots connect together.
