After seeing Ally's post about the opening of Entourage I did a search of the best title sequences that have been used on television. In a list titled "26 Awe-Inspiring Television Show Opens and Title Sequences" one of the opening credits that caught my eye was that of the HBO miniseries 'The Pacific.' I only watched a few episodes but I remember really loving the opening and the way it combines charcoal drawn images with moving images.

The company behind this Emmy nominated title sequence was Imaginary Forces. In order to create this opener the company utilized the history of battlefield sketchers as inspiration, and hand drew the likeness of the actors in the film. This company also designed and animated the maps seen within the miniseries. This company is also behind the title sequences for Mad Men and Chuck.
