New Show Recap: Hannibal, 02×13, “Mizumono”

As we say goodbye to the normal television calendar as summer season starts, Hannibal provided what I needed for a season finale. The finale delivered 43 minutes of complete and utter batshit chaos wrapped in a cool calm exterior.  Read More New Show Recap: Hannibal, 02×13, “Mizumono”

New Show Recap: Hannibal 2×11, “Ko No Mono”

I finally had the chance to read a few of the walkthroughs by Bryan Fuller on The A.V. Club. His outline of the show each week definitely gives an insight into what is going on in the minds of everyone involved. Though I still am angry about what happened to Beverly, at least Margot and Alana appear here to stay for now. This week’s episode was kind of a resting breath after the holy shit moments of the last few.  Read More New Show Recap: Hannibal 2×11, “Ko No Mono”

New Show Recap: Hannibal 2.09 and 2.10, “Shiizakana” and “Naka-Choko”

Hannibal has a vision, but I don’t know if any of the viewers really grasp what that vision is. Is it to shock Friday night audiences? Is it to make us empathize with killers? Is it trying to make us vegetarians? The last two episodes have picked up the rolling snowball, hurtling it even faster down the mountain.  Read More New Show Recap: Hannibal 2.09 and 2.10, “Shiizakana” and “Naka-Choko”

New Show Recap: Hannibal 2.08, “Su-Zakana”

After the last few upsetting episodes, this episode settles into a more laid back cat-and-mouse game. It breaks it up a bit nicely that way. By making the characters feel safe, the viewers feel like we are safe. This is a marvelous horror trope: get the crowd relaxed for a good scare when the real shit goes down.  Read More New Show Recap: Hannibal 2.08, “Su-Zakana”

New Show Recap: Hannibal, 2×04, “Takiawase”

I cannot put this show down. Every week, I go into it knowing I am about to have too many emotions, knowing that beauty is going to be mixed with ugly and I will love it. “Takiawase” continues the grimdark beauty trend of this season.  Read More New Show Recap: Hannibal, 2×04, “Takiawase”

New Show Recap: Hannibal 2.01, “Kaiseki”

Hannibal is not a show for everybody; it takes a particularly morbid person to love this show. I love this show. Bryan Fuller makes such beautiful shows. Hannibal is beautiful, but the darkest beauty one has ever known. I am over the moon that it is back on after teetering on the edge of one and done great shows like Firefly.  Read More New Show Recap: Hannibal 2.01, “Kaiseki”

Lunch Time Poll: Favorite Horror Protagonist and Antagonist

This one is a simple and easy poll! October is one of my favorite months, given it’s my birthday month, (the 21st, don’t forget that) and that Halloween is the holiday of the month. I love Halloween. I have always loved it. There is something to be said about being someone else. I guess it’s because I got to pretend to be a girl a few times (Pretend is not really the right word!)
