Every time I see this opening sequence I think how brilliant it is. It is a programme about men, actors, who moved from Queen's in New York to Hollywood, generally having the time of their lives. The opening sequence shows this... The typography of the actors names replacing them on billboards, shops and cinemas shows their names in lights, like the Hollywood dream. Even little touches like the emphasis on the 'Queen's' number plate at the beginning, giving the viewer an idea of the story before it has even begun. It epitomises the entire ethos of the series in 30 seconds. Graphic design is about visual communication. This is a perfect example.
