Hannibal Racked Up 39 Complaints With the FCC
"OBSCENE, VERY OBSCENE" Hannibal FCC Complaints

Last Sunday, NBC's acclaimed psychological thriller *Hannibal* wrapped up its third and final…

The best part of so many of these complaints is they aren’t for the show itself, they are for the ads for the show. And you can read all 39 on the link above for a good laugh. Angel Maker from Season 1 Episode 5 “Coquilles” seemed to be a...

"Silence!" The Musical Parody You Didn't Know You Needed In Your Life.

"Silence!" The Musical Parody You Didn't Know You Needed In Your Life.

Touted as The Unofficial Parody of “The Silence of the Lambs,” (I’m guessing for legal purposes) “Silence! The Musical” started out as internet project by brothers Jon and Al Kaplan. In 2002 they wrote, performed and recorded a nine song musical based on the 1991 movie and put it online for their friends to download so they wouldn’t have to burn CD-Rs. Turns out it caught the attention of the...

Devil: Clarice & Hannibal's Relationship Part 4: Connections

Hopefully by now I have satisfactory established that Clarice and Hannibal are clearly interested in each other in one way or another. At this point both are looking for some sort of physical connection to each other:

Freeze, Thaw, Repeat: Abigail Hobbs and the Tragedy of Tropes

Freeze, Thaw, Repeat: Abigail Hobbs and the Tragedy of Tropes

On last week’s episode of Hannibal, Season Three Episode 9 “...And the Woman Clothed with the Sun” we saw the return of Abigail Hobbs in the return of flashbacks. The flashbacks showed us how Hannibal, with her help, faked her death and which set Will Graham up for her murder. This happened sometime between Episodes 12 and 13 of Season One. The second flashback involved some very unorthodox...

Death Angel & Her
Devil: Clarice & Hannibal's Relationship Part 2: Object of His Affection

*Please note I am citing book chapters instead of page numbers. This is paining the Literature major in me, but I know this is probably better in this medium since everyone has different editions of the book. You’ll just have to dig around in yours till you find the quote.*

NBC's Hannibal Breathes Different Life Into Thomas Harris' Words.

NBC's Hannibal Breathes Different Life Into Thomas Harris' Words.

Possible spoilers about the Hannibal Lecter novels, if it’s possible to spoil books that are 16+ years old.

I just finished binge watching season two of “Hannibal” in prep and excitement for the start of season three June 4th. However, this is the first time I have watched the show since I have read three of Thomas Harris’ Hannibal Lecter novels: Red Dragon, The Silence of the Lambs and...

Season 3 Is So Close We Can Taste It.

Don’t worry, Clarice it’s all we’re thinking about too as we anxiously await Thursday night. Or at least I hope I’m not only speaking for Clarice and myself. Right guys? Right?

Thomas Harris' Hannibal Lecter Books: Let's Discuss!

Thomas Harris' Hannibal Lecter Books: Let's Discuss!

I finished reading “Hannibal” last night, thus missing my goal of reading the first 3 Hannibal Lecter books before the start of season three of the show by 4 weeks but such is life. I find when I really enjoy a book I slow down so I can make it last longer.

“Hannibal” has given me serious book hangover. Like I don’t think I’ll be able to start a new book for a week. I can’t even get excited...

Death Angel & Her
Devil: Clarice & Hannibal's Relationship Part 1: The Gothic Romance

This Part One in a series I’m writing on Clarice Starling and Hannibal Lecter’s relationship and the end of the novel “Hannibal” that I’ll be posting on here and on my tumblr. Obvious spoilers for the “Hannibal” book. Some have been seen in the movie and the TV show though.

Death Angel & Her Devil: Clarice & Hannibal's Relationship Part 5: The Byronic Hero & Subversion

Death Angel & Her
Devil: Clarice & Hannibal's Relationship Part 5: The Byronic Hero & Subversion

So brooding, so mysterious, so seductive: Mads Mikkelsen’s Hannibal totally upped the ante on Byronic.

In the earlier parts of my series I have discussed how Harris sat up an amazing Gothic Romance with Hannibal. However as the novel draws closer to the end, he subverts that. However in order to understand that subversion we must first understand Hannibal Lecter as Byronic Hero.

Where Can We See The Cast of Hannibal Next On TV?

I know it’s sad to think we only have a couple more episodes left of “Hannibal” to watch. However if you love the actors of the show like I do and are wanting some new or different TV shows to check out, here’s what a few of the actors will be up to this fall and into 2016:

-Raul Esparza will still be on NBC in his original snazzy dresser, sass master role: ADA Rafael Barba on “Law & Order:...

Death Angel & Her Devil: Clarice & Hannibal’s Relationship Part 6: Inside The Chrysalis

Finally got around to writing the next part. Multi-part series always seem to get harder the closer you get to the end.

He could feed the caterpillar, he could whisper through the chrysalis; what hatched out followed its own nature and was beyond him. – “Hannibal,” Chapter 99

I have now reached the most controversial chapters of “Hannibal,” the chapters that are most misunderstood. The...

The limousine’s table was folded down and covered with a linen cloth. […] She tried to picture Lecter, or someone, sitting here with her present companion (a mannequin) and having a drink and trying to show him the Valentines. And what else? Working carefully, disturbing the figure as little as possible, she frisked it for identification. There was none. […] Starling poked the lump in the...
