hannibal season 2
MARGOT: They think I’m weird.
HANNIBAL: I’m much weirder than you will ever be. It’s fine to be weird.
I suppose no show can bat 1000 every episode for an entire season: I guess there’s kind of a need for “throwaway”, filler episodes that won’t totally throw the viewer off if they miss.
Thus we have “Su-Zakana”, courtesy of director Vincenzo Natali, best known for helming the teen werewolf flick Ginger Snaps. ‘”Su-zakana” isn’t bad, really–it’s just kinda unnecessary. (more…)
When last we left Hannibal ‘n Pals, poor Beverly Katz (Hetienne Park) was sliced up by the Ripper, opening the door for non-canon character death, and throwing a monkeywrench into the expectations of Thomas Harris fans like myself. And the good Doctor (Mads Mikkelsen) was nearly exsanguinated by an orderly from the Chesapeake Hospital for the Criminally Insane at the behest of Will Graham (Hugh Dancy).
Tim Hunter‘s “Futamono” finds Hannibal oddly contemplative and plagued by nightmares from his attack–nightmares he attempts to exorcise by composing a piece on his trusty harpsichord (above). AND by sharing his anxieties with Dr. Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas). Last week’s teaser gave us a look at just how far that “sharing” progressed–but one thing at a time.
I am, and shall forever be, a “fannibal”. This show grabbed me from the first 15 minutes and has refused to let go. It’s been a long time for myself and others that share this passion to wait until the coming of season 2. But, at long last, it is nearing that fateful date. And finally, the powers-that-be have released the first official trailer. Scroll down to check it out and tell me you didn’t just pee yourself a little with excitement. (more…)
