Rubicon Trailer: Crossword Puzzles of Death!

They've squeezed acclaim, awards, and not-bad ratings from premises involving meth-baking school teachers and affair-having advertising directors, but can the nice people at AMC do the same for a show about a crossword-solving, conspiracy-busting think tank employee? If the first trailer for Rubicon — which premieres this Sunday, after the Breaking Bad finale — is anything to go by, yes, probably. We like James Badge Dale (24, The Pacific) and everything else here looks good enough to make this ad's hilarious excitement-ratcheting soundtrack seem totally unnecessary (the brass makes it sound like Batman might jump out or something). Consider us excited.
