I love well produced indie films – especially when they are episodic, as it gives me more time to enjoy the work, and share it with the rest of the world.  This trailer combines the best of 50’s sci-fi with a noir feel, and best of all A BRAIN IN A JAR!

More info at The Mercury Men website, include a very awesome poster that reminds me a lot of Darwyn Cooke’s New Frontier (or Saul Bass posters from the 60’s).  Too bad we have to wait until the fall to see the whole thing.
