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.
The key question, is it better to know more or less about our villains is a key discussion tonight as we revel in our favorite episode of the series thus far. Chock full of guest stars, humor, brilliant dialog, and shocking food preparation, we dig in deep to this wonderful episode.
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.
