I've always been a big fan of title sequences and have collected and studied them for many years (favorite of all time is the Steve McQueen Bullet title sequence by Pablo Ferro and music by Lalo Shifrin). And I'm so glad that graphic art has made a big comeback in title sequences both for television and feature films.
I've put together the top 5 title sequences for recent TV shows that stream primarily online. These titles are imaginative, fit perfectly with the theme of the show they represent and are quite simply very cool looking!
