Below is the trailer for Season 3 of “Bored to Death,” HBO’s flawed but charming noir-detective comedy. I’ve listed my complaints about Jason Schwartzman and the angle the show takes for his writer-turned-amateur-private-dick before, but that can’t stop Zach Galifianakis and Ted Danson from making the show enjoyable, especially for an unabashed Brooklyn-phile such as myself.
The trailer has little (perhaps nothing) to offer of the coming season, but it does have Schwartzman & Danson & Galifianakis screwing around on Coney Island set to a Beastie Boys soundtrack. That’s about as good of a plug for a Brooklyn-based show that you’re going to get. The highlights of me going to Coney Island aren’t nearly as exciting — it would be an hour of me sitting on the Q train, and then a time-lapse of me getting fatter as I went to Nathan’s three times in four hours. Whatever, those cheese fries are worth it.
