Normally we’d be cock-a-hoop with a brand new (as of yesterday) trailer for the new season of a hit TV show starring Damian Lewis. Actually, anything starring Damian Lewis would do. Normally, the very appearance of such a thing would create a frenzied stabbing of the play button on the video embed below, and a fierce twist of the volume knob / jamming in of earbuds.
