Good TV credits get you jazzed. The main thing is the show, of course, but you've waited a week (if you're not binge watching) and good credits set up a Pavlovian response.
I didn't love Westworld, but I watched it. And week after week I was surprised how weak the credits were. HBO retooled the show, and spent $100 million on it--they couldn't come up with a better opening sequence?
Okay, it's just my personal taste, but let me show you the credits of three other HBO favorites. If you're a fan, they'll get you going. We'll follow with Westworld. Wake me up when it's over.
