Video: The Wire absolutely belongs on the Mount Rushmore of television shows. Its intro sequence was always one of the most memorable both because of the music and how it utilised up close looks at scenes of the season while painting a broader picture of the entire world of The Wire itself. Elliot Lim re-does the intro sequence in animation, which wouldn't seem like it would work for a TV show as gritty as The Wire but totally does because it captures so much of the shows essence. The transitions are beautiful and effortless and does such a good job in drawing the lines between the characters (and also connecting them).
