Here’s the trailer for season 7 of HBO’s “Entourage,” wherein the trailer editors try to make a show about absolutely nothing look dramatic. Even condensing it down to a minute doesn’t manage to hype the drama much. However, in the final scene of the trailer — where Vince jumps a car over a small body of water — they should probably put a shark in it and move that scene back about four seasons. (But yes: I’ll still watch it. I can’t help myself.)
Here’s a very lackluster trailer for the second season of HBO’s “Bored to Death.” I watched the first season out of something akin to inertia. I didn’t really like it that much, but it kept showing up on my DVR and I kept pressing play. The only thing good about the show — which stars Jason Scwartzman and Zach Galifianakis — is Ted Danson, who is fantastic as the pot-smoking rich old white dude.
Finally, if you’re contemplating killing your HBO subscription after “True Blood” ends its run this summer because the above two shows don’t give you much to hope for, don’t forget that Game of Thrones debuts in 2011 and, in the interim, you will have Kenny Powers to keep you company. Here’s the second season teaser trailer for “Eastbound & Down,” an otherwise average show punctuated with enough moments of divine hilariousness to make the effort well worth it.
