Richard Armitage in Berlin Station has definitely reignited my burner
I’ve watched this teaser trailer about two dozen times now. I’m really excited!
As you’ve been reading for a while I’ve been struggling with my fandom. I do think a factor in that was that 2015 was a year without projects to love. I respect the work that went into Hannibal (and I still think I will write more about it), but it wasn’t something I could look forward to. Instead, I was dreading it. Even Richard Armitage has not been able to sell me on another descent into David Copperfield, at least not so far. The intro to The Turn of the Screw was well done — but not really sustaining.
This, on the other hand — Berlin Station — looks fantastic and exciting. I’m sure it will revisit some of the terrain of Spooks but at least so far I don’t care. Something to get thrilled about for fall! A reason to look forward! I haven’t felt this way since 2014 (with BOTFA and The Crucible). I’m glad to feel this way again.
