The Good Fight’s opening title sequence is always an arresting watch, with exploding luxury items and office equipment boldly set to Renaissance music.
But why does it sometimes fall well into the episode? Sometimes it’s up front… other times it can be 17 minutes before the credits roll. I haven’t been able to track down any explanation for this, but I feel it’s not the only show to follow this idea.
Is it nervousness around viewers changing channels once the credit sequence rolls? Playing it late, the viewer is presumably already invested in the storyline.
Perhaps it is used as a circuit breaker from the drama, or maybe it’s just to stop the viewers Skipping Intro, which is heavily encouraged by streaming services.
What other shows hold off on their titles until the viewer is hooked?
