We were pretty annoyed about NBC’s decision to cancel Hannibal last year, but no more than the show’s star, Mads Mikkelsen, who said that he’s hopeful for the show’s return.
The Starz TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s award-winning fantasy novel American Gods just cast its lead, Shadow Moon: English actor Ricky Whittle, who’s probably best-known as Lincoln on The 100.
Anybody have any info on or opinion about this book? I just saw it on Amazon while I was loading my Wish List with Hannibal related goodies. Oh, and Happy Holidays y’all! I miss our talks.
Are you serious, Clark? One of the greatest Christmas movies of all time is getting a remastered 25th anniversary edition, complete with a digital copy. [Preorder National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation 25th Anniversary, $14]
Unfortunately for me (but not terribly surprising), tickets for the TIFF Sunday screening of Men & Chickens were off sale by the time single tickets went on sale (or shortly thereafter as I admittedly didn’t check first thing). On the plus side, it’s already found a distributor so it will show up sometime next year.…
Spotted at DragonCon. They really put some thought and work into this!
The dreaded moment has arrived: Hannibal as we know it is no more. At its heart, the show’s always been about the complex (to put it mildly) relationship between Will and Hannibal; necessarily, the finale digs deep into TV’s most fraught twosome ... along with serving up buckets of stomach-roiling gore.
until the Chilton Flambe. Then I laughed.

There’s a great interview with Bryan Fuller up on Vox this morning regarding this season of Hannibal. He bluntly states that his interpretation of the Thomas Harris novels is fan fiction. Spoilers for the entire series, ultimately.http://www.vox.com/2015/8/30/9224…
I don’t see any reason to start a new thread for tonight but I’m bumping Miss Crystal’s Thread from Thursday in case anyone is just joining us tonight. And to add this:
I’ve been indulging in articles and blogs reflecting on the greatness that was (is!) “Hannibal”. Not many have said anything I didn’t know or suspect, but this one has a unique perspective. Also, I do sincerely wish I had written this:
This would be cool, and he’d be a great addition to cast that already includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor.
THIS IS IT!!! Is this the end???!?! OMG!!!
We are totally not live streaming tonight because we can’t wait till Saturday.
Didn’t mean to steal your thunder, kristinbytes, just wanted to get this up so everybody could get access to the
livestream that you did not get from me.
So, I made a dinner for the finale. Posting it today since so many of you will be watching the Canadian feed tonight—-I’ll check in later to see if someone (MissCrystal???) provides the link.
In honor of Thursday’s/Saturday’s Hannibal season three finale (SEASON!), I thought I’d introduce you to Kholodets. Kholodets is basically a Ukrainian meat aspic. Hannibal’s Kholodets (S2 E12 Tome-wan) is clearly superior to all other aspics not only in presentation but because it contains a special ingredient.…
Finally got around to writing the next part. Multi-part series always seem to get harder the closer you get to the end.
