The ooomph of my title refers to this:
That hits right where it is supposed to hit. Great choice, Epix – you are making good use of your greatest asset.
Otherwise I found the trailer rather *yaaaawn*. We’ve had the whole “light/shadow” scenario on the various characters in a trailer before, so repeating that is boring. I am a bit surprised really – because the trailers were actually something the show used to do very well. This one doesn’t really give any hints at what the new season has in store for us, apart from showing a few new faces. Not sure whether the various black backgrounds with some streaks of light would entice me to watch this show if I was not yet familiar with it… But well, the intense look of Danny Boy in the last frame is definitely the highlight of the clip.
But hey, maybe that is *exactly* the strategy? Keep it mysterious, create some suspense, make the viewers ask for more. Or ask questions such as – with Daniel Miller being the last character to be shown, does that mean he is the last man standing/the key to everything/in the season from beginning to end? Let the speculation begin.
