Improving One Of TV's Worst Opening Credits Sequences

Illustration for article titled Improving One Of TVs Worst Opening Credits Sequences

I love Boardwalk Empire. Can't get enough of it. But I, like most others, cannot stand the show's opening credits, which are neat the first 2-3 times you see them, but which have become unbearable now we're years into the show's run.


Here, then, are two ways to fix this. The first is by re-creating the show's intro with Grand Theft Auto V. And some mines.

(If you want to see how closely this matches up with the original, here's a comparison video with the two playing side-by-side).


The second is to watch the actual credits, only hit the little "gear" icon in YouTube and change the speed of the video to 1.5x (or even 2x). Your toes, they will tap.

Is this show worth sticking through to the end? I tried watching the first season, but the lack of sympathetic protagonists really bothered me, and I never found myself particularly hooked. From what I hear - from someone I know who kept watching for a few seasons - the only halfway likable characters tend to get killed not long after they're introduced.
