Room 104’s trailer doesn’t really make me want to watch it

Room 104

On paper, Room 104 sounds like it might be quite good, even if it is set in just one hotel room. It’s by the Duplass Brothers (Togetherness) and it’s on HBO. It’s an anthology series set in a hotel room. It’s got the likes of James Van Der Beek, Amy Landecker and Orlando Jones in the cast.

Yet watching the trailer, I just thought, “Huh.” How about you guys? Does this rock your boat? (If it does, BTW, it starts July 28)
