And we’re back! Hannibal roars back onto our screens on a motorcycle in Paris, stalking his prey. This tremendous season opener written by Bryan Fuller & Steve Lightfoot, and directed by Cube director Vincenzo Natali wastes no time in proclaiming Season 3 to be an entirely different beast than seasons 1 and 2. The adventures of The Fells, Hannibal & Bedelia DuMaurier, in first Paris, then Florence, are stunning achievements of television, as well as looping back in time so we can spend a significant amount of time with our old friend Dr. Gideon. Can’t wait for episode 2!
A hell of an episode advances all the plotlines while taking a significant turn to the beautiful surreal of experimental films. We discuss the validity of the Hannibal/Alana storyline, the reality of the cages in the BSHCI, and the beauty of the food at Hannibal’s dinner party.
All on this episode of Eat The Rudecast, an unauthorized podcast about NBC’s Hannibal, and the works of Thomas Harris.

In a conceptually awesome episode, we meet Anthony Hopkins AS Hannibal Lecter simulacrum Dr Abel Gideon played by the awesome Eddie Izzard. I defend my love of Dr Frederic Chilton to Ophilia. We also get a Clarice Starling proxy. There’s a lot to like about this episode, unfortunately it’s marred by poor writing, poor CGI, and otherwise doesn’t feel of a kin with those that came before and episodes that will come after.
