With the summer winding down, a new batch of TV shows are reaching their finales, giving us plenty to discuss on the podcast. First we take a look at the week in comedy, including the series finale of Wilfred. Next up is reality, with some Top Chef Duels talk as well as our regular Sytycd breakdown. After that, we talk genre, including a preview of BBC America’s upcoming Intruders, and then we break down a very full and very emotional week in drama, including intense episodes of Rectify and Masters of Sex, as well as the pilot for Legends. Afterward, instead of the DVD Shelf, it’s one more week of Comic Con coverage.
In our final week of Sdcc audio, Kate, along with other Comic-Con press including Jason Griffin »

Here at Dread Central we love "Hannibal." Honestly, I still think we don't deserve a show as good as it is! If you haven't watched it, please rectify that situation Immediately, if not sooner. With Season 2 about to come home, you have no excuse. Speaking of which...
From the Press Release
Hannibal: Season Two, the next chapter of the smash hit series, will keep viewers on the edge of their seats when it arrives on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD), DVD (plus Digital), and Digital HD September 16th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment.
Based on the characters and elements appearing in the novel Red Dragon by Thomas Harris, Hannibal, from Gaumont International Television in association with Sony Pictures Television Networks, stars Mads Mikkelsen (The Hunt) as the iconic Hannibal Lecter, »

The TV show Hannibal, now entering season 3, is disturbing and fascinating and disgusting and beautiful and horrifying (depending on the scene), which is probably why I can’t stop watching it! And it’s certainly full of surprises as well. Based on the Thomas Harris novels, Bryan Fuller has called his team’s take on the character and stories a “mash-up,” which I like because it means they can revisit old material but still give it new twists.
At San Diego Comic-Con this year, I got to learn about some of the upcoming twists and turns at the aptly named “Hannibal Pannibal,” and at the cast and crew interviews afterwards. And now, I get to share all of that with you!

Daily Dead recently had the opportunity to meet with some of the cast and crew of NBC’s Hannibal during Comic-Con. With the showdown at the end of Season 2 leaving viewers anxious for more episodes, Hannibal’s producers shed some light on their plans for Season 3, including the return of a familiar face that we had previously assumed to be dead.
Warning: These interviews contain major spoilers if you have not already seen the Season 2 Finale.
Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy were unfortunately unable to attend Comic-Con this year. Nonetheless, many individuals involved with the show made an appearance, including director David Slade, executive producer Martha DeLaurentiis, writer Steve Lightfoot, show creator and writer Bryan Fuller, Caroline Dhavernas (Dr. Alana Bloom), Aaron Abrams (Brian Zeller), Scott Thompson (Jimmy Price), and surprise panel guest Raúl Esparza (Dr. Chilton).
On directing the Season 2 finale:

Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) and Will Graham’s (Hugh Dancy) relationship features significant homoerotic subtext on NBC’s Hannibal. While some involved in the project shrug off the gay undertones, others acknowledge that something does seem to be going on between the two characters.
Is Hannibal Lecter Gay?
Actor Scott Thompson, who plays Jimmy Price on Hannibal, thinks it’s perfectly possibly that things could turn overtly sexual between Lecter and Graham. Putting himself in their shoes, Thompson, who is openly gay, can empathize with the idea of someone consenting to sex with a person not of their preferred gender.
“Most people just need a little nudge into [a] sexuality that’s not in their world. And I think everybody probably have someone that’s the wrong gender that they could have sex with,” Thompson told uInterview, explaining, “You know, if Michelle Rodriguez came at me with a strap on I might go, »
On NBC's cult drama Hannibal, the bond between title character Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) and Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) begins as nothing more than a meeting facilitated by agent Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne). Throughout the first season, we watch as Lecter begins to take a keen interest in Graham—going so far as to take a whiff of his aftershave. As the show progresses, so does Will's dependency, and Hannibal’s interest becomes increasingly intense.
It’s no wonder fans begin to speculate about the gay undertones of their relationship. At Comic-Con 2014, uInterview asked series regular Scott Thompson, creator Bryan Fuller, producer Michael Rymer (producer) and regular Caroline Dhavernan if they think Hannibal is, in fact, gay. While most of them suggested it is nothing more than a passionate “bromance,” Thompson offers a more expansive explanation. “Most people just need a little nudge into sexuality that’s not in their world, »
What are some films that you would consider to be the worst of all time? Tommy Wiseau’s The Room? John Travolta’s Battlefield Earth? Mariah Carey’s Glitter? Well, according to film review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, there are films that are much worse out there. While the movies just mentioned are bad, they still have their fair share of positive reviews on the popular website.
Today we are going to be looking at ten films that have the dishonorable distinction of having a zero percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. These are films that apparently no reviewer can find any merit in whatsoever. We’d like to argue that these next films don’t necessarily deserve that distinction. Now, these movies are far from masterpieces (heck, they’re not even all that good) but they deserve at least a 1% rating for goodness sake!

"Hannibal" stars Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen couldn't make it to Comic-Con this year, but the bulk of the show's supporting cast — including Caroline Dhavernas, Scott Thompson, Aaron Abrams, and surprise returnee Raul Esparza — were able to be in San Diego, and I got a chance to sit down with the four of them the morning after their lively Comic-Con panel. We talked about the unexpected reprieve for Esparza's Dr. Chilton, the "Hannibal" supporting player trap of being more in danger the more you're given to do, how the show will look with Price and Zeller as the only completely healthy good guy characters left, and a lot more. »

Fans of NBC’s Hannibal--or fannibals, as they call themselves--came out in force at Comic-Con to support the dark, artsy drama, wearing flower crowns, black stag costumes and masks of the characters’ faces. Creator Bryan Fuller rewarded them with some juicy morsels about what (or who) his team of writers are cooking up for Season 3, including some new characters directly from the Thomas Harris novels on which the series is based. Moderated by British TV host Jonathan Ross, the panel kicked off with a montage of footage from the past season, including scenes the gut-wrenching finale, which left the fates of many of the characters up in the air. Cast members Aaron Abrams (Brian Zeller), Scott Thompson (Jimmy Price) and Caroline Dhavernas (Alana Bloom) joined Fuller, director David Slade and executive producers Steven Lightfoot and Martha De Laurentiis on stage. We’ll serve up all the highlights from the panel after the jump. »

New characters and a new direction are promised in San Diego but what we really want to see is showrunner Bryan Fuller's fantasy musical episode
Spoiler Alert: this contains discussion of Hannibal, season two. Do not read if you have not seen the entire season.
Following its renewal just prior to the epic finale of season two, the cast and crew of Hannibal held court at Comic-Con on Thursday. The panel, hosted by Jonathan Ross, was informal, and spilled a surprising amount of beans on season three. While Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy and Laurence Fishburne were not in attendance (Mikkelsen and Dancy sent video messages), showrunner Bryan Fuller was joined by a panel including Caroline Dhavernas, Scott Thompson, Aaron Abrams and Raúl Esparza, and wasn't coy in dropping some fairly major hints about where the show is going. Here's what he revealed.

Which explains exactly why Hannibal ended its sophomore run in spectacularly bloody fashion.
Michael Ausiello sat down in TVLine’s San Diego Comic-Con video suite with the executive producer, fellow Ep Martha De Laurentiis and cast members Caroline Dhavernas, Aaron Abrams and Scott Thompson to dish some of Season 2′s most shocking moments: »

Stars Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy were absent from the panel due to work commitments, but Mikkelsen sent his apologies via video from Denmark, while Dancy recorded a message from Australia, both thanking all the “Fannibals” for their support of the critically-acclaimed drama.

The biggest reveal from the panel? Raul Esparza will be “a huge part of season three” despite his character, Dr. Chilton, being shot in the face in season three. Esparza (who worked with Fuller on “Pushing Daisies”) said that he trusts the writer implicitly, because no matter what kind of awful mishaps befall the twisted psychiatrist, »

Based on traditional ratings alone, NBC's "Hannibal" is among the least-watched shows on the traditional broadcast networks. But its reputation among the sorts of fans who come to Comic-Con has grown with each passing year. Two summers ago, it was just one half of a Bryan Fuller-focused panel (which also focused on his attempt to reboot "The Munsters" as "Mockingbird Lane") in a very small room. Last summer, it moved to a slightly bigger room to accommodate Fuller and Hugh Dancy. This year, even without Dancy or Mads Mikkelsen or Laurence Fishburne, "Hannibal" has graduated to the big time, taking over the Convention Center's mammoth Ballroom 20 for a panel subtitled "Embrace the Madness," featuring Fuller, director David Slade, writer/producer Steven Lightfoot, longtime Hannibal Lecter producer Martha DeLaurentiis, and supporting players Caroline Dhavernas, Scott Thompson and Aaron Abrams, and moderated by Jonathan Ross. Given that Dhavernas' Dr. Alana Bloom »
