Hannibal Recap Hiatus

Hey, everybody, let’s huddle in and take a knee for a second.

When Laura first started this website, her goal was the systematic and devastating mind-control takeover of the human race to provide a place for people to write and talk about their favorite shows and movies, and for people who enjoyed things to come and enjoy them freely, without having to worry about writers who hated what they were writing about, or fighting with other fans. Positivity was the main goal, here, and I think she’s succeeded. This is a great place full of great, thoughtful people who really love the things they love.

This is, unfortunately, why I have to take a bit of a break from recapping Hannibal. Continue reading

Hannibal 2.3: Hassun

title

Hannibal airs Fridays at 10pm on NBC

PREVIOUSLY:

HUMAN LURES! KADE PRURNELL (WHOSE NAME IS JUST RIDICULOUS IN EVERY DIRECTION) THREATENED WILL WITH EXECUTION! WILL GOT A PLASTIC TUBE JAMMED DOWN HIS INNER FLESH TUBE! HANNIBAL GOT INVESTIGATED! JACK AND KATZ ARE KINDA TEAM WILL WHETHER THEY KNOW IT OR NOT!

Okay, I’ll be honest with you–this episode bored the bejesus out of me. Like the actual bejesus. I can’t feel the lord’s love shining down on me anymore. Courtroom dramas are my least favorite dramas of every existing drama, and on episodes that are dialogue-heavy (like this one) writing about it without devolving into just retyping the script is a huge challenge. Factor these two aspects in together, and episodes like Hassun are basically a nightmare for me to recap like I usually do (i.e. very detailed).

So in the interest of me not having to put out something mediocre and forced and unfunny and you not having to read all 4500 words of that mediocre and forced and unfunny nonsense, this one episode will be done more like a review than a full recap, and just kind of touch on the parts that I was all zzzzzzz through.

Regular longwinded overemotional essay-length recaps will continue with the next episode!

PREVIOUSLY: WILL AND HANNIBAL’S FRIENDSHIP IS OUTTA THIS WORLD! BEDELIA IS TOTALLY UNDER HANNIBAL’S THUMB AND WILLING TO LIE TO PROTECT HIM! A SERIAL KILLING TAXIDERMIST IS PUTTING PEOPLE IN CIRCLES INSIDE A GRAIN SILO.

(This PREVIOUSLY is brought to you by Lectervision. Everything Is Fine And You Are In Control, Hannibal!)

Hannibal 2.1: Kaiseki

title

Hannibal airs Fridays at 10pm on NBC

HEY Y’ALL! It’s been a while! I hope you’ve been well. Me and my flower crown and my kitchen knife have been doing pretty good. Waiting patiently and DEFINITELY not eating any human fleshes. None whatsoever. Not even during ritual sacrifices to somehow speed up time to bring season 2 to us faster.

PREVIOUSLY: SEASON ONE!

The proper French pronunciation of savoureux is actually save yourself.

PREVIOUSLY: will graham happened so much.

Hannibal 1.11: Rôti

title

Hannibal airs Thursdays at 10pm on NBC

The name of this episode is really appropriate because my heart is actually roasting, just like Will’s horrible feverish traitor of a body, and Hannibal’s liar liar fucking pants that are on fire. ONLY TWO MORE EPISODES LEFT.

PREVIOUSLY: Dr. Chilton oozed everywhere; Eddie Izzard was emphatically NOT the Chesapeake Ripper; our (and Jack’s) sweet baby agent Miriam Lass got murdered/dismembered; Will and Alana got to first base the dugout; Will is just ALL fucked up with the brain inflamins; and Hannibal’s hiding it from him.

Hannibal 1.10: Buffet Froid

title

Hannibal airs Thursdays at 10pm on NBC

YAY WE GOT A RENEWAL!

Hannibal is my favorite show currently on television, and is probably in my top five favorite shows ever at this point. I’m glad NBC realized they had something really special here, and decided not to dick it over. Good job, NBC.

PREVIOUSLY: BIG OL’ TOWER OF PEOPLE; Will knows Abigail killed Nick Boyle; Will agrees to keep tending this secret garden; Hannibal is “worried” about Will and how Will is losing his mind.

Hannibal 1.09: Trou Normand

title

Hannibal airs Thursdays at 10pm on NBC

PREVIOUSLY: Will’s looking at dead people and is spiralling further into a destructive ibuprofen addiction; Will and Alana kissed but SOMEBODY had to go be mature and responsible about the whole thing (not naming any names, Dr. Alana Bloom of Quantico); Abigail shanked the brother of Hannibal’s first I LOVE U WILL GRAHAM macaroni art victim and Hannibal helped her hide the body; and Jack was suspicious of Abigail and whether she helped Garrett Jacob Hobbs commit his murders.

Hannibal 1.08: Fromage

title

Hannibal airs Thursdays at 10pm on NBC

PREVIOUSLY: HAHA I think Hugh Dancy did the PREVIOUSLY ON HANNIBAL voiceover this time but I literally said “who the fuck was that.” to my computer so IDK. Hannibal tried his damnedest to put Will out to sea with nothing but Hannibal himself as a paddle; Alana had morals as well as a sense of professional ethics; Will was super duper attracted to that, and also her pretty hair and steely yet comforting gaze; Franklin introduced Hannibal to his cute boyfriend Tobias (Demore Barnes); Franklin also is in love with Hannibal pretty hard.
