Shot-by-Shot Comparisons: Adam Scott Remakes Old TV Title Sequences
by Kyle Anderson on June 17, 2013
Adult Swim has become the best place on television with their strange and irreverent programming featuring some of the funniest people in Hollywood today. They’ve also done two of the weirdest things of all time, thanks to Adam Scott: The Greatest Event in Television History. It’s a mockumentary that follows the making said event, which in October of 2012 was a shot-for-shot remake of the opening title sequence of the 1980s private detective series Simon & Simon starring Scott and Jon Hamm. Then, earlier this month, they did it again with the making of a shot-for-shot remake of the opening title sequence of another detective series, Hart to Hart, this time with Scott, Amy Poehler and Horatio Sanz. Scott has promised that there will be more in the future. I’m holding out hope for Quantum Leap.
YouTube user eji313 has gone ahead and done a side-by-side comparison of both sequences. It’s pretty amazing to see just how accurate they are.
