HANNIBAL on NBC seems amazing and therefore deserves it's own thread!

Wonderfalls is great, and Dhavernas is very different on it.

The murders on this show were so insanely over the top. The totem pole of corpses, the angel wings, the mushroom people!

I really liked the first couple of seasons of Vikings so the blood eagle (angel wings) was very familiar.

the imagery in the grain silo episodes was amazing

I've been enjoying this twitter account lately: https://twitter.com/madsdoingthings

Mads is a ridiculous person.

Roz, Tuesday, 12 March 2019 15:38 (four months ago) link

I have a friend who admitted she was more interested in Hugh Dancy and his portrayal of Will over Mads

she is dead to me now

mh, Tuesday, 12 March 2019 15:40 (four months ago) link

I am going to waste so much time today on that twitter.

Hugh Dancy is fine. Ugh imagine if it was him and David Tennant. Much too similar.

Yerac, Tuesday, 12 March 2019 15:44 (four months ago) link

^^oh god no. Yeah that just wouldn't work at all.

this was great fun btw, i'm kicking myself for not posting about it afterward so i can look back on specifics. Hannibal fans are nerdy and awesome.

Excuse me, I think you mean Fannibals.

There was an early ep of someone encased in a beehive and/or treetrunk iirc? The practical makeup effects for that was breathtaking

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Tuesday, 12 March 2019 17:50 (four months ago) link

That was the episode with Amanda Plummer doing lobotomies.

Yerac, Tuesday, 12 March 2019 17:52 (four months ago) link

xxp i stan corrected

All done. It was great. I might rewatch it all again at the end of the year.

Also, ^^^ I would totally watch them in a show called "Murder Husbands: no subtext"

how’d you like the scene where Gillian’s character finds out (or the audience is clued into) who was traditionally fed the diet she’s been on?

mh, Sunday, 17 March 2019 04:38 (four months ago) link

I loved almost all of the trippy first half of S3. I did like Alanna more too. During the kaleidoscope Alanna/Margot scene I said "Oh, they got some payoff for casting two actresses who look a lot alike."

Gah, all of it was so cinematic and darkly funny, I adored it. ( I did start to get a little annoyed at the very metered dialogue though, especially in the Gillian Anderson scenes, but it let me look at her hair more).

Yerac, Sunday, 17 March 2019 14:25 (four months ago) link

I am sad it's over.
I did say in the first half of season one that they were so in love with each other. Killing Eve really does a good job of playing with that too.

Yerac, Sunday, 17 March 2019 14:29 (four months ago) link

hadn't occurred to me but killing eve kinda is hannibal lite

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Sunday, 17 March 2019 18:54 (four months ago) link

did you just smell me?

totally read this in Sandra Oh's voice lol

four weeks pass...

just finished season two in my rewatch!!!!! that last episode is still life-ruining

american bradass (BradNelson), Monday, 15 April 2019 02:40 (three months ago) link

it really is

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Monday, 15 April 2019 03:00 (three months ago) link

i'm watching it with my roommate and after we finished the penultimate episode i said "this show has everything! michael pitt eating his own face... everything."

american bradass (BradNelson), Monday, 15 April 2019 03:07 (three months ago) link

Real want to rewatch this again right away, but am trying to let more time pass. Now that I know the shape of the characters, it will be different enough viewing.

And xpost above, I liked Alana a lot more in the 3rd season.

Yerac, Monday, 15 April 2019 13:15 (three months ago) link

rewatch revealed to me that i like alana throughout, although i think it's unfortunate they pair her with hannibal for little reason other than how gross and horrible it is (the dual sex scene however makes it worth it??? i think)

american bradass (BradNelson), Monday, 15 April 2019 13:17 (three months ago) link

there are a lot of things about season two i'd consider individually weak (some of the serial killers of the week especially sociopathic social worker vs. stable guy sewing dead people into horses; how it takes two full episodes to introduce mason (???)) but the writing and the long game the show is playing make them work

american bradass (BradNelson), Monday, 15 April 2019 13:20 (three months ago) link

i enjoyed thinking of hannibal as the showrunner of season two, throwing people who had absolutely nothing to do with each other (will/margot/mason) into a weird dramatic plot device about pregnancy. hannibal also casts himself in will graham's role at the very start of the season, so he's basically the writer/director/star of this particular vortex of killings anyway

american bradass (BradNelson), Monday, 15 April 2019 13:23 (three months ago) link

There should be absolutely no ??? about whether the dual sex scene was worth it.

Yerac, Monday, 15 April 2019 13:50 (three months ago) link

sociopathic social worker vs. stable guy

I enjoyed that episode but I'm also a fan of Jeremy Davies doing Jeremy Davies types of characters

mh, Monday, 15 April 2019 13:57 (three months ago) link

There should be absolutely no ??? about whether the dual sex scene was worth it.

it's one of the finest scenes in the show

american bradass (BradNelson), Monday, 15 April 2019 15:23 (three months ago) link

No one ever made out in a pool of blood did they?

Yerac, Monday, 15 April 2019 15:30 (three months ago) link

Hannibal’s response to the human muralist killer in the grain silo never fails to make me laugh

Killer: There is no god
Hannibal: Certainly not with that attitude

hee

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Tuesday, 16 April 2019 05:12 (three months ago) link

We should do an ilx group rewatch of this over some holiday.

Yerac, Tuesday, 16 April 2019 12:45 (three months ago) link

easter

j., Tuesday, 16 April 2019 13:41 (three months ago) link

he is risen and would like some sherry

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Tuesday, 16 April 2019 15:15 (three months ago) link

I was thinking the month of December for the holidays, but I guess that is far off. I think my spouse would get mildly worried if I rewatched it right after we finished.

Yerac, Tuesday, 16 April 2019 15:49 (three months ago) link

I kind of can't believe but am thankful that EW listed every outfit Hannibal wore.

Yerac, Tuesday, 16 April 2019 15:51 (three months ago) link

the first half of season three is exactly as wonderful as i remembered. i know this show is stylistic overflow all the time but the dialogue is straight up beautiful writing at this point

also the abigail fake-out got me all over again

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 26 April 2019 01:34 (two months ago) link

definitely my favorite television show of all time

american bradass (BradNelson), Friday, 26 April 2019 01:36 (two months ago) link

yeah that section is my fave stretch of the whole show probably

Simon H., Friday, 26 April 2019 01:52 (two months ago) link

mark s, Monday, 15 July 2019 19:49 (three days ago) link

I might be misremembering, but I think that one episode where Norm came to town ended with Frasier coercing him into fileting his own face?

Logy Psycho (Old Lunch), Monday, 15 July 2019 19:49 (three days ago) link

lol @ bedelia as lilith

lol this thread just took a right turn straight into the bin

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Tuesday, 16 July 2019 04:49 (two days ago) link

I need someone to mark this thread as safe once this incident is over.
