    I thought the way they changed her title sequence was weird to say the least. In the first 5 episodes we see behind her the studio (her witch's studio, as somebody here called it) and it is filmed when dark, and it goes perfect with an air of mystery and danger the character brings. Then suddenly in episode 6 there is the pool of some resort with sun and palm trees, as if she is some airhead on a midlife crisis spring break.

    Though the art studio was dark and mysterious, it wasn't the best choice for a title card IMHO. The pool shot was presumably Acapulco where she'd been living for several years before returning to Denver.

    yeah, I assumed it was that, even though "hotels always bored her." Her title sequence changed again to the Rolls Royce before the middle of season 3, to match her newfound wealth. I guess I liked the studio background to showcase her base of operations, and I found it peculiar how for that character the presentation changed once while the season was underway in season 2 and then again in season 3.

    Doesn't her title card change again later on in the show, again mid-way through a season? I was sure it did?

    Isn't that La Mirage in the background?:censer:

    I also prefer the studio background but it could have been a little less dark. Or maybe just the bed.

    Let's compare what @Snarky's Ghost did on his own PC with what a whole creative team came up with for Joan Collins after the studio and then we know why Camelot was no more.
    I like the studio background for season 2--it obviously could not have worked after that season, but I would be happy with the du Cap for the next few seasons. She should have been on some Moldavian castle skinning puppies in season 6.

    If it happened during season 7, it was a struggle to pay attention to the show past Singapore, much less the credits.

    I never liked that studio title card and was glad when they changed it, but I think I would've liked an exterior shot of the studio, preferably one soaking in late afternoon / early evening sun.

    Maybe they should have used the gateway, like they did on Dallas, The Colbys and Falcon Crest.

    It also metaphorically shows Alexis "wanting to get back in"

    And a gateway is always a nice closing shot for the opening credits. You know...open, close.

    Maybe they should have used the rear gateway, metaphorically showing Alexis "likes anal".

    I wish Alexis had lived in a more characteristic flat, and then it could have been the background for the season 3 opening credit.
