Today I stumbled upon an old but interesting blog post about the Wire’s credit sequence. The post discuss how it differs from your average television show credits.
…The Wire’s four credits sequences don’t fit any of these descriptions; the images are taken out of context from the season’s 12 episodes and arranged in a pattern that only makes sense if you watch the show closely. Most significantly, the content changes significantly from season to season
A well written, long and recommended read.
