Iron Men with Wooden Teeth: 'Turn' Trailer
In light of yesterday’s less than positive news regarding NBC and their nefarious plans for the sweetest of comic books, it only makes sense that the universe give you something to be happy about today. Not because the universe likes you, or has any sense of fairness, but because it knows that making you a little bit happy now and then gives you hope, and it’s so much more delicious to squeeze the hope out of someone than to just stomp one more time on someone who has completely given up. Go ahead and relay that to your therapist, I’m sure that’s sufficiently nihilistic to get you the happy pills for another month.
We showed the first teaser for AMC’s new series Turn back in December, and it was wonderful if far too brief.
But now we are properly in the year the show will debut, and therefore we deserve a full trailer:
Here’s the obligatory plot summary once again:
“Turn” is a spy thriller set during the American Revolutionary War. Based on remarkable new research featured in the book “Washington’s Spies,” by Alexander Rose, it tells the untold story of America’s first spies. “Turn” follows Abe Woodhull (Jamie Bell), a farmer living behind enemy lines in British-occupied Long Island, who bands together with a group of childhood friends to form The Culper Ring, an unlikely team of secret agents who would help turn the tide of the war in favor of the Rebels. Their daring efforts also revolutionized the art of espionage, giving birth to modern tradecraft as we know it today, along with all of the moral complexity that entails.
Need a poem to get excited? We’ve got that too.
Take your Draper, jonesing for a new young sheathe.
And I’ll grant you Walt, baking that blue rock of Lethe.
And sure, Saul’s coming too, plotting from beneath.
But me? I’m waiting for the iron men with wooden teeth.

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
