Southland opening credits image sequence is a simple slideshow of ten sepia photos of real life criminal-related events (Richard Ramirez aka "The Night Stalker" and one of his crime scenes, a night photo of one of "The Black Dahlia" crime scenes,...) that happened in the city of Los Angeles. In its simplicity, it manages to convey the reality in all its rawness as featured in this show.
Southland opening credits roll through the screen to the rhythm of the instrumental version of this beautiful theme from the Portuguese musician, songwriter and singer Dulce Ponte.
