“Hannibal”

The time has come to talk about my new favorite show.  This show is an absolute carnival for my mind, full of yelling and bright, beautiful pictures, and things that both excite and scare the fuck out of you.  Also, abnormal food.  I have some thoughts on this and they need to go somewhere.

 

Prequel: It’s really hard to stop saying “Hannibal” the way they do here:-http://www.themarysue.com/hannibal-korean-promo/

SPOILERS UP TO THE MENU ITEM:

1×1 “Aperitif”

1. Mads Mikkelson was born to play this role.  From the second I saw him cast as Hannibal I realized I was going to have to watch it because it was a match made in Heaven.

2. For going around imagining yourself as serial killers, dreaming of quietly levitating corpses and a stag is…really not that bad.

3. I believe Hobbs whispered “See?” to Will because in Hobbs’ mind, cannibalizing other girls because he was freaking out about his daughter going to college is the same as Will freaking out because he doesn’t want her to bleed out and die.  Hence: “See?  You don’t want to let her go, either.  You’ll kill to keep her with you.”

4. I love how the original serial killer is named after the philosopher who literally wrote the book (Leviathan) on how people are awful and selfish.

5. Clearly, Hannibal stuck by Abigail because, as a psychiatrist, staking his claim to the traumatized girl is his best ticket to staying in the FBI loop.

1×2 “Amuse-Bouche”

6. I believe the stag symbolizes Will’s greatest issue of “The inevitability of there being a man so bad that killing him felt good.”  Hence, it directly involves Lector, but does not actually symbolize him directly.

7. We now have the answer for those who feel cannibalistic but are vegetarians!

1×3 “Potage”

8. I love that the show actually does so much research: (Abigail Hobbs is historical) http://tattlecrimenews.tumblr.com/post/50767405400/tattlecrimecom-abigail-hobbs-was-already

1×6 “Entree”

9. Dessert for cannibals!: https://twitter.com/BryanFuller/status/330152849793241090/photo/1

10. That whole prompting of Jack to tell him about other ponies he’s lost back in “Amuse-Bouche” is a lot more terrible now, eh?

1×7 “Sorbet”

11. Hannibal is for nothing if not hunger relief!

12. Aunt Vivian from Pushing Daisies!  In my head, this actually happens in that universe also, when Vivian and Lily were the popular mermaids and went around in special socializing circles.  Finding out they’d been eating people is part of how they developed social phobias and became shut-ins.

13. Cheese Divination!=http://www.occultopedia.com/t/tyromancy.htm

1×8 “Fromage”

14. This and Sorbet are the best things ever.

1×11 “Roti”

15.  Always called that all Alana scenes were real.

16. Perhaps Bedelia is the one Hannibal was having a fling with when his students thought he was having an affair with Alana?
