Have you ever had your urge to watch a show snuffed out by a preview?

Sorry if this is a redo of a previous post. But has anyone experienced the situation of where a show looked super interesting from the write up and the initial released art but when you finally got to see either a working preview or a teaser clip you suddenly lost any interest in seeing the show even on a one episode test basis.

For me the show would be Kill la Kill where I was getting a little geeked to see what it would be about and how that world would work but upon seeing the 3min preview it just became a no go and left me feeling disappointed.

I would assume this happens more often than not but share your experiences of similar situations. Keep in mind this is not a drop the show at ep1 situation this is drop a show before ep1 based on either bad marketing or realizing the show was not what you were hoping it would be.

That's why I don't watch previews. They often don't reflect what you'll see when you watch the show.

nope, I don't pay attention to previews or hype build-up pre-release information. the only thing I do is read the season listings and descriptions. if something sounds interesting, I watch it. if not, I don't.

No, dropping a show due to a three minute PV doesn't make much sense, imo.

I was thinking this too as a recent example. The preview seemed kinda funny and I did like the first episode. Nowadays, I barely look forward to new episodes at all each week.

At least we're almost at the end?

Blood Lad for me...saw the cover of it and immediately got interested plus the preview was pretty cool. Then checked out a few chapters of the manga and it became my most looked forward to show of the summer. About 5 episodes in, it just became too silly and the humor wasn't the greatest except for a few times.

Eh, next week's the finale so the series is ending in less than 48 hours.

I knew it would be terrible after the PV, but was hoping I'd be surprised by the first episode, but I was barely able to get through that.
